MMA: Ex-UFC champ Ortiz arrested in Calif.


Associated Press

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. California police say former Ultimate Fighting champion Tito Ortiz has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.

Police Lt. Mike Reynolds says Ortiz was taken into custody Monday morning at the home he shares with adult film actress Jenna Jameson in Huntington Beach.

Police say Ortiz was released from jail after posting $25,000 bail.

Reynolds say police cannot make an arrest on suspicion of domestic violence unless there's a "visible injury." He says the victim's injuries met that standard but he would not elaborate.

Ortiz was the Ultimate Fighting Championship's light heavyweight champion from 2000 to 2003.
