Report: Tito Ortiz Charged With Two Counts of DUI Following Most Recent Car Crash, Faces Up to Six Months in Jail


(“Police at the scene became suspicious of a possible DUI when the driver exited his car and asked quote ‘What seems to be the officer, problem?’ Back to you in the studio, Jim.”)

I should start by confessing that the above photo is not the result of Tito Ortiz’s latest vehicular mishap, but rather, one of the top Google search results for “hilarious car wrecks.” But the mere fact that I have to clear this up should tell you a lot about Ortiz’s chances of making the leap from fighter to chauffeur now that his MMA career is pretty much over.

In any case, it appears that Ortiz has allegedly been charged with two counts of DUI stemming from his early morning arrest a couple weeks ago. I say “allegedly” because the source reporting on the former LHW champion’s arrest is TMZ:

Former MMA champ Tito Ortiz has been charged with two counts of DUI … after crashing his Porsche into a concrete median back in January, TMZ Sports has learned. 

The 38-year-old fighter was arrested on January 6th … when cops say he blew a .12 on the breathalyzer, following the 4am crash on an L.A. freeway.  

If convicted, Ortiz faces up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine — but since it’s his first offense, he probably won’t do any time. Instead, he’ll likely only be sentenced to probation and will be required to complete an alcohol education course.

UFC Featherweight Matt Grice In Critical Condition Following Car Crash/Brain Surgery [UPDATED]

Horrific news out of Oklahoma today, as News9 is passing along word that seven-fight UFC veteran and OKC police officer Matt Grice was involved in a serious car accident yesterday that has left the fighter in critical condition:

Officer Matt Grice was off duty and sitting at a red light when another car slammed into the back of his vehicle near Shawnee. He was rushed to OU Medical Center, where he underwent brain surgery Sunday night. 

Currently slated to face TUF 15 veteran Jeremy Larsen at UFC 166 in October, Grice has not fought since dropping a split decision to Dennis Bermudez in one of the best fights of the year (and a FOTN-earning effort) at UFC 157 back in February.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Matt. Here’s hoping you have a full, speedy recovery. We will update you on Grice’s condition (as well as Larsen’s replacement opponent) as information is made available.

Photo of the Day: Tito Ortiz Wrecked His Car While Practicing for Celebrity Race Yesterday

You would think that the UFC would have a clause in the contract of its fighters that restricts them from partaking in any dangerous activities like skydiving, attending a barbecue thrown by Mike Whitehead or living with Kim Couture. Apparently Zuffa is too busy writing up their new journalism policies to worry about fighters like Tito Ortiz wrecking race cars when they should be concerned with training for upcoming bouts.

According to TMZ, Ortiz crashed his Toyota Scion into a wall and then later took out Never Back Down star Djimon Hounsou’s car as well. The “Fueled by Fame” event takes place next weekend. What are the over/under on “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” crashing his car during the race and having an extreme case of whiplash forcing him out of his July 2 UFC 132 bout with Ryan Bader?

Props to CP reader Ryan M for the tip.
