It was reported on MMAJunkie that Chris Leben was arrested yesterday for driving under the influence (DUI). Leben was in jail overnight for violating the rules of his probation.
For whatever reason, an officer at the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office spoke to MMAJunkie who confirmed that Leben has a date with a judge later on today at 12PM PT.
Leben is currently scheduled to face Michael Bisping at UFC 85 in June, so we’ll see how Leben’s latest run-in with the law affects his upcoming fight.
This is exactly what UFC President Dana White has feared ever since the debut of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, which both Bisping and Leben starred.
