Retired UFC legend BJ Penn was arrested on Saturday night at his hotel room following an altercation between him and an unidentified friend. As first reported by MauiWatch.com, Penn “was staying at the Four Seasons Maui when police responded and encountered an inebriated Penn. According to [MauiWatch's] anonymous source, Penn severely assaulted the individual and left him fleeing back to the hotel room where the arrest was later made.”
BloodyElbow confirmed the report with local police, stating that the Maui County Police Department “were unable to provide further details other than the fact that he has already been released.”
This is the second time that BJ Penn has been arrested after a violent incident. In 2005, Penn was charged with first-degree assault after he punched a police officer outside of a nightclub in Waikiki, which was hosting a pre-party for Rumble on the Rock 7. Penn plead no-contest in that incident, and was eventually sentenced to one year of probation, community service, and substance abuse treatment.
