A well-known UFC fighter was arrested in Lodi on suspicion of driving under the influence and other allegations Saturday morning, police said.
Nick Diaz, 31, was pulled over in his vehicle on the 600 block of E. Pine Street just before 2:20 a.m. on Sept. 6. The officer who made the traffic stop gave Diaz the choice of a breath or blood alcohol test, according to police Lt. Steve Maynard.
Diaz chose the breath test. Maynard said Diaz said he needed to use the city jail restroom before being tested. When in the restroom, Maynard said Diaz tried to vomit in an attempt to get rid of the "evidence."
Diaz is also facing attempted destruction of evidence, obstructing a police investigation and driving on a suspended license.
He was released later from jail. It wasn't clear when he would be formally charged.
