UFC veteran Nick Diaz has apparently found himself on the wrong side of the law again as the fighter has been arrested in Red Rock County, Las Vegas.
An inmate in-custody status report posted on Twitter by Front Row Brian (which can be seen below) shows that Diaz has been charged with domestic battery by strangulation and domestic battery in the first.
Diaz is going to have to pay a total of $18,000 bail once he steps in front of a judge, with that appearance in front of a judge happening tomorrow.
There is no word at this time as to whom Diaz has allegedly tried to strangle or injure in other ways.
The Stockton native hasn’t been seen in the Octagon since UFC 183, where he fought former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva to a no contest. Nick’s brother Nate has been slightly more active than his bro, but even he hasn’t competed since a decision loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 202.
A statement has been issued by the UFC on the matter, which says:
“The organization does not tolerate domestic violence and requires all athletes to adhere to the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. Every athlete is deserving of due process and this situation, as with any official allegations, will be duly reviewed and thoroughly investigated by an independent party.”
