The Las Vegas Metropolitican Police Department arrested UFC star Nick Diaz due to domestic violence charges on Thursday night, according to MMAJunkie. Charges include domestic battery by strangulation and a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. Officer Larry Hadfield of the LVMPD office of public information said to MMAJunkie that the victim was female.
Diaz is still being held at the Clark County Detention Center with $18k bail. Diaz can’t post this bail until after tomorrow’s 9AM court hearing.
Officers responded to the incident at 7:20PM PT. A source told MMA Junkie that 12 police units appeared at the residence and that the victim was sent to the hospital. Diaz was also very aggressive and was hostile with officers at the scene.
Diaz returning to UFC is still questionable. He hasn’t fought since January 2015 in which he suffered a defeat against Anderson Silva.
