UFC Star Tito Ortiz Arrested
Ultimate Fighting Champion star Tito Ortiz has been arrested for allegedly beating up his live-in partner, porn actress Jenna Jameson. TMZ reported that Ortiz, who is a former UFC light heavyweight champion, was picked up from his Huntington Beach house that he shares with Jameson.
Reports said Jameson, who personally called 911, had visible injuries when police arrived at the scene. Jameson said she is pressing charges, adding that the physical altercation was the first time that Ortiz had hit her, but insist that it would be the last. Ortiz and Jameson are not married, but they have been living together and have two twin boys who are only 13-month old.
Meanwhile, UFC chief Dana White said Ortiz could be kicked out of the organization if the charges against the fighter turn out legitimate. “Other than going on a killing spree, being accused of domestic violence is the worst thing you can have going for you,” White said. However, White said that the organization would probably wait for the final police report before taking any action.
