UFC fighter Nick Diaz was arrested this past May on charges of domestic violence for allegedly attacking his on again/off again girlfriend.
It would appear that the fighters legal issues are over according to MMA Fighting because they are reporting that all charges have been dropped against Diaz.
Those charges were actually dropped a month ago, but the case as a whole was only dropped recently after the Clark County (Nevada) DA decided not to pursue things any further.
Ross Goodman, who was Diaz’s attorney throughout this ordeal, says that the Stockton native is grateful that everything worked out the way it did.
“We are grateful that the District Attorney’s office was fair and thoughtful in reviewing this case based on the evidence and making the decision to dismiss this matter particularly in light of the Grand Jury’s decision finding probable cause was lacking,” Goodman said.
The unnamed victim had allegedly suffered multiple injuries from the alleged attack, including a potential broken hip, bruising on both legs, reddening on the neck and head, plus pain in the head.
Goodman claims that a major factor behind the case being dropped was that the alleged victim had given multiple inconsistent versions of what happened on that fateful night.
“Throughout this ordeal [the alleged victim] has given multiple inconsistent versions of what occurred and recently testified before the Grand Jury to a third version,” Goodman said. “Further, the medical records made clear that [the alleged victim] did not suffer any fractures, subluxation of dislocation, soft tissue damage or any substantial bodily injuries expected from such allegations. The videos she posted prior to this incident clearly shows someone who is motivated by revenge because Nick was seeing other women. Truth delayed is better than no truth at all and I trust that the ultimate dismissal of all charges with prejudice will be viewed as total vindication for Nick and clears his name from being associated with such horrific but false allegations.”
Shortly after the news broke, a grateful Diaz would issue the following statement through Twitter:
