Victor Ortiz arrested for DUI

Victor Ortiz, who is on probation for a battery charge at a Kenny Chesney concert last year, just had another run-in with the law.

Everyone's favorite goofball Victor Ortiz is making headlines again - but it's not for anything he's done inside the ring. Ortiz was actually arrested over the weekend for a DUI charge in California. TMZ reports that law enforcement pulled over the 29-year-old fighter/actor around 7pm for diving with expired tags. But when the officers approached the car, Ortiz was reportedly in rare form.

Ortiz supposedly "bombed" field sobriety tests and was then booked for a misdemeanor DUI charge. He has since been released from police custody.

But a bigger potential issue here for Ortiz is that he's still on probation from a 2015 battery at a Kenny Chesney concert. In that incident Ortiz and his brother were arrested for beating up a man they got into an argument with while listening to country music.

If a judge happens to decide that Ortiz has violated his probation in this latest incident, Ortiz could face some more legal hurdles in the coming weeks.
