Police have released the 911 audio from the call placed after the alleged domestic abuse incident between Chad Johnson and his wife Evelyn Lozada. Johnson’s neighbor made the phone call after Lozada went to his home to escape the situation. The neighbor tried to make sure the incident remained as quiet as possible so it would not cause a scene.
“I don’t want the police to come with their lights on, but I just want them to come until everybody calms down,” the neighbor told the 911 dispatcher.
“He’s a very high profile person so we’d like to keep this as quiet as possible. If you could let the police know, because we don’t need the news here.”
The neighbor seemed more concerned about protecting himself from Johnson rather than seeming overly concerned about injuries to Lozada. He did describe the cut but continued with the calm demeanor he had throughout the entire call.
“She has a nice cut on the forehead that I believe is going to need stitches,” he said.
He repeated over and over again that the police were dealing with a high-profile situation and that he did not want a scene to be caused. The neighbor was worried that Johnson would come to his house looking for his wife. The call doesn’t clear up anything that happened that day but it does give a little insight into the situation. There was no panic among anyone in the room and they seemed to want to diffuse the situation as quickly and calmly as possible.
Here is the audio of the call:
