COOPER CITY, Fla — Miami native and former NFL star Chad Johnson is making headlines off the field.

The former Miami Dolphin left a $1,000 tip Monday at a restaurant in Cooper City, and he tweeted about it.

His meal at Havana's on Griffin Road was only $37.40, but he tacked on the huge tip and left a message for the server, Catalina.

“Congrats on re-opening, sorry about the pandemic, hope this helps,” Johnson wrote at the bottom of the receipt. “I love you.”
