The new year is not off to a good start for former UFC champ Tito Ortiz.
The 38-year-old landed in jail Monday morning on DUI charges following a crash on an LA freeway.
Ortiz allegedly blew a .12% BAC, the legal limit for driving in California is .08% BAC after crashing his Porsche into the center median. California Highway Patrol officers arrested Ortiz on misdemeanor drunk driving charges and took him to a local jail where he was booked into custody around 6 a.m. local time. He was released on $15,000 bail around 8:15 the same morning. His initial court appearance in the matter is scheduled for January 27.
The fighter has been in a bitter dispute with ex-wife Jenna Jameson. He currently has sole custody of their nearly five-year-old twins but the former adult film star has been fighting to regain her parental rights with the boys.
Upon hearing the news of his arrest, Jameson tweeted “I knew karma would get him” but followed it up by adding “I am so disappointed in the father of my children. This proves my children should be with their loving and capable mommy.”
