*Maybe Evelyn Lodada and no one in the NFL want Chad Johnson anymore, but authorities in South Florida sure do.
According to TMZ, authorities in Broward County, Florida have issued a warrant for the ex-wide receiver and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant in connection with his domestic violence conviction involving ex-wife Evelyn last year.
The Broward County District Attorney’s Office says Johnson didn’t report to his probation officer which is a violation of the terms of his probation and on May 7, a judge issued the warrant.
Once Johnson is taken into custody a hearing will be set to determine whether he actually violated his probation. If that’s the case, it could mean jail time.
According to his Twitter page Johnson is hanging out in Pasadena, CA. TMZ says they reached out to Chad’s lawyer, but so far, no response.
Lil Scrappy Mug Shot*VH1 cameras were rolling when “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Lil Scrappy turned himself in to Atlanta authorities this morning.
Officials say Scrappy violated his probation in March after refusing to submit to a court-ordered urine test. According to TMZ, he tried to turn in a urine sample that was cold to the touch and may have been tampered with, and when asked to submit another cup, he refused.
As previously reported, the court eventually issued a warrant for his arrest.

Actor Gucci Mane (L) and guest attend the “Spring Breakers” premiere at ArcLight Cinemas on March 14, 2013 in Hollywood
*Gucci Mane, currently on the big screen in “Spring Breakers,” is reportedly wanted by the Atlanta Police Department after a soldier claimed that he was assaulted by the rapper at a local club last week.
According to Atlanta’s Channel 2 (via WSBTV), an arrest warrant was issued for the MC after a soldier approached Mane in the VIP section of the Harlem Nights club on the evening of Mar. 15.
When the soldier, who is only referring to himself as “James” in media interviews, asked a security guard if he could take a picture with the rapper, Mane reportedly hit the man over the head with a champagne bottle.
“And as I looked at him in the shock of why, one of his friends hit me in the side of my face,” says James, who was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital and received 10 stitches for the cut on his head. James, who serves in the Army, was out with friends to celebrate his birthday.
Atlanta police have since issued a warrant for the rapper (real name: Radric Davis) for aggravated assault. Mane was at Harlem Nights promoting his new mixtapes Trap Back 2 and East Atlanta Memphis, the latter a joint release with Young Dolph.
The 33-year-old MC has spent much of his career battling legal issues: Mane has been arrested for battery, probation violation and reckless driving, among other disturbances. He served a six-month jail sentence in 2011.
*Dr. Arnold Klein, the dermatologist who was best friends with Michael Jackson and may or may not be Prince Michael’s biological daddy, has a warrant out for his arrest, reports TMZ.
Klein — who has now filed for bankruptcy — failed to turn over more than 100 pieces of expensive artwork as well as a 2001 Ferrari Spider to the bankruptcy trustee.
The judge has now ordered the U.S. Marshals to arrest Klein and send him to federal prison until he turns over the goods.
The artwork includes pieces by Andy Warhol (including the famous Marilyn Monroe), Robert Graham, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Renoir, Rodin and Toulouse-Lautrec.
Klein tells TMZ, “It’s bulls**t, it’s fraud. Have them come arrest me.”
*It has inevitably come to this for embattled comedian Katt Williams.
Police in the state of Washington have issued a warrant for his arrest after he skipped a court hearing today (Dec. 12).
Williams was arrested in Seattle on Dec. 2 after he was allegedly involved in a vicious bar fight and booked on suspicion of harassment, assault, and obstructing police charges.
He was due to appear in court today to be formally arraigned, but he never showed up, prompting officials to issue a warrant for his arrest.
According to TMZ, the 39-year-old’s attorney claimed his client was absent due to a “medical issue.”
This is the latest in a slew of legal woes for the star – he was recently hit with a lawsuit from a fan over allegations he struck the man with a microphone during a stand-up gig earlier this month. Last week, he was arrested following a previous high-speed police chase in Sacramento, California. Earlier this month, he was caught on tape smacking an employee in Target.
