LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif. — Authorities arrested UFC Hall of Famer Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell early Monday on suspicion of domestic battery, according to multiple reports.
His arrest came after Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a family disturbance in the upscale Hidden Hills community, KCBS-TV reported. The city is in the Santa Monica Mountains, just west of Los Angeles.
In a statement obtained by KNBC, deputies said they determined that “Chuck Liddell and his wife had been involved in a physical altercation.”
He was arrested and booked at the Lost Hills sheriff’s station just before 2 a.m., according to jail records. He is being held on a bail of $20,000.
Liddell was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in July 2009. According to ESPN, he is one of the highest-selling pay-per-view draws in UFC history. He is a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion who defended his title five times, KNBC reported.
Liddell retired from the UFC in 2010, according to the Bleacher Report.
