This is just one of those weird coincidences that sticks out in hindsight. On the first episode of Hard Knocks, which aired this past week, Chad Johnson joked about getting arrested. He was obviously kidding, but as he was leaving the building he turned to a man we believe is Stuart Weinstein, the Dolphins' "Team Security Investigator" and promised he was getting arrested.
The quote was taped a while back and it likely has little to do with Johnson's domestic violence arrest on Saturday. But here's the clip that's just odd to look back on.
And the quote: "Stu, I promise I'm getting arrested while we're off." Off camera, we hear "Thanks. Call me. I promise I'll come get you." Other players leaving the building can be heard saying "What? Wait a minute."
Johnson and his wife, Evelyn Lozada, also talk about their relationship, how they met and the like during the episode. It is, like everything else Johnson does, in joking fashion, with the Dolphins' wide receiver saying he paused Call of Duty for her, which makes her a keeper.
Again: Keep in mind that he's joking around. It's interesting, but that's about it. There were no real signs this arrest was coming, and everything is still allegations at this time.
