A problem has arisen for a man who held the interim title in the UFC. After allegedly slamming into two parked automobiles outside of a nightclub in Hollywood while he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, Tony Ferguson was taken into custody and charged with driving under the influence, according to a report that was published by TMZ on Sunday. Ferguson’s truck was on its side after the accident, and the current UFC fighter was arrested after he allegedly refused a field sobriety test. Additionally, the investigation found that Ferguson was not wounded despite his “very uncooperative” behavior while on the scene.

An LAPD representative confirmed Ferguson’s arrest, stating that he was, in fact, detained for DUI and that he did crash his car into two parked automobiles, flipping his own vehicle in the process.

According to the information that can be found on the internet, Ferguson was taken into custody at about two in the morning local time and was booked at the Los Angeles Police Department‘s office in Hollywood just before six in the morning. Ferguson is charged with a misdemeanor and has $30,000 bail.

On Sunday at 12:12 PM (Pacific Time), Ferguson was given his freedom, and his next court date is scheduled for June 1 at the municipal court of Los Angeles.

Since his defeat by submission at the hands of Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC 279 in September, Ferguson has not fought in any competitions. The 39-year-old fighter has been defeated in the octagon in each of his last five fights, including two that ended in knockouts at the hands of Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler, as well as two that were decided by unanimous decision against Charles Oliveira and Beneil Dariush.
