According to a report first posted on TMZ, Former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez was arrested early Sunday morning in LA on suspicion of driving under the influence.
According to law enforcement, Rodriguez was busted in L.A. yesterday morning at 1:25 AM. He was subsequently booked for misdemeanor DUI. Details surrounding the arrest are unclear.
He was released several hours later on $5,000 bail.
Ricco’s rep tells TMZ, “When Ricco was arrested the police officer said he blew a .1. When they had him take another breathalyzer at the station only a few minutes later he blew a .08. We are wondering how a breathalyzer dropped .02 points after a very short time.”
Rodriguez, who also appeared on “Celebrity Rehab” to recover from an addiction, is 49-19 in the cage, with his most recent fight being a loss in December to Ante Delija.
