Ex-UFC Champ Tito Ortiz Arrested For Suspected DUI

Authorities say they have arrested former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz for investigation of driving under the influence after he hit a freeway median in Los Angeles.

The California Highway Patrol says the 38-year-old Ortiz lost control of his vehicle about 3:50 a.m. Monday on Interstate 405 as he was driving his 2012 Porsche Panamera. Authorities say his car hit a concrete center median and his sports car had moderate damage.

Ortiz had two passengers in his car but no one was injured.

A message left for Ortiz’s attorney, Ofir Ventura, was not immediately returned.
