UFC fighter Nick Diaz was arrested on Thursday night in Las Vegas for domestic violence.  He was later charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation and misdemeanor domestic battery.

Via MMA Junkie:

Diaz has been charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation, as well as misdemeanor domestic battery for the alleged incident.

Officer Larry Hadfield of the LVMPD office of public information told MMAjunkie that the alleged victim was female. Hadfield said officers responded to a call and were dispatched to a Las Vegas residence at approximately 7:20 p.m. PT.

The person with knowledge of the case told MMAjunkie that 12 units were dispatched to the scene, the alleged victim was transported to a local hospital and Diaz was combative with officers during his arrest.

Unfortunately we’re not surprised by this.  Anyone who has watched Diaz over the years knows he’s pretty much capable of anything, except coherent thought.
