MIAMI - Former Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson appeared in a Miami court Monday to try to get his probation lifted.
Last August, Johnson, also known as Ochocinco, was arrested for head butting his then wife, Evelyn Lozada.
He pleaded no contest.
The judge originally gave him a one-year probation, but after court Monday Johnson's attorney said he was placed under administrative probation.
Johnson will no longer have to report to court, as long as he stays out of trouble.
"I've made a terrible mistake and I've apologized for it a million times. Right now my focus is to get back to the game," said Johnson.
The Miami Dolphins released Johnson shortly after his arrest.
