Chuck Liddell was arrested early Monday and booked into a Los Angeles-area jail on a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.
The 51-year-old UFC hall of famer’s arrest was reported by TMZ, who stated police were called to Liddell’s home and when they arrived, determined the victim in an alleged argument that turned physical was Liddell’s wife. According to the TMZ report, Northcott did not need medical attention.
“TMZ Sports has learned the L.A. Sherriff’s Department received a call about a fight at a Liddell’s San Fernando Valley home.
When cops arrived, they investigated … and determined the 51-year-old former fighter was involved in a verbal argument that turned physical. We’re told the alleged victim is Liddell’s wife. She did not require medical attention.
Chuck was taken to jail … where bail was set at $20,000. He’s listed at 6’2″ and 240 pounds on his booking sheet.”
Liddell last fought professionally in 2018 when he came out of retirement to fight Tito Ortiz for a third time. In November 2018, Ortiz finally beat Liddell with a first-round knockout under Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions banner.
Liddell was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame’s Pioneer Wing in 2009.
