According to TMZ, Chad has struck a plea deal with prosecutors that will prevent him from serving time.

The site reports:

Chad Johnson will likely not serve a single day in jail for allegedly headbutting his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada during a nuclear argument last month — because TMZ has learned, he just struck a deal with prosecutors to keep his ass out of the pokey

Sources close to Chad tell TMZ, the unemployed wide receiver agreed to be placed on probation and complete extensive anger management counseling … in exchange for either a guilty or no contest plea.

Chad also agreed to a no-contact order that would block him from talking to Evelyn.

The site also says that a hearing has been scheduled for tomorrow, though it appears to be mainly a formality as the judge is expected to sign off on the deal to make it official.
