Former UTC fighter, Tito Oritz, was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles after having crashed on the 405 Freeway last week. According to sources close to the matter, Oritz, 38, crashed his 2012 Porsche Panamera into a concrete median at approximately 4:00 a.m. on January 6th.
Police officers administered field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests to Tito. The sports star had a BAC of .12, which is higher than the .08 legal limit. Police also said that Tito had two passengers in his car at the time of the crash.
Tito was arrested and bond was set at $15k. He was later released on his own recognizance later that morning.
