Tony Ferguson, a former UFC interim champion, has recently found himself embroiled in a legal predicament. Ferguson had been arrested for driving under the influence after purportedly crashing into two stationary vehicles outside of a nightclub located in Hollywood over the weekend.
After the collision, Ferguson’s truck was overturned, and the current UFC competitor was taken into custody following his refusal to undergo a field sobriety test. Ferguson exhibited a high degree of non-cooperation on the scene but fortunately remained unharmed.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed Ferguson’s arrest that he was indeed arrested for driving under the influence, and he did collide with two parked cars while flipping his car in the process. As of now, Ferguson is facing misdemeanor charges, with his bail set at $30,000, and remains in police custody.
Ferguson, who hasn’t participated in a UFC competition since losing to Nate Diaz via submission at September’s UFC 279 event, has been on an unfortunate losing streak, losing five successive fights within the octagon. These losses comprise of defeats against Michael Chandler, Justin Gaethje, Charles Oliveira, and Beneil Dariush, with no favorable results in sight.
