Former Strikeforce and WEC champion Nick Diaz was recently arrested on charges of domestic battery. Now a photo of the fighter’s mugshot has made its way to the internet.
Nick Diaz was arrested by Las Vegas police on Thursday night, May 24, and taken to the Clark County Detention Center. Diaz’s bail was set to $18,000.
The fighter attended his court hearing on Saturday, May 26, before making bail and being released. The alleged victim has since been revealed as female and was reportedly transported to a local hospital following the incident.
Matt Staudt, a close friend of Nick Diaz, would later take to social media to claim that an alleged stalker of Diaz had framed the fighter for domestic battery.
If it wasn’t clear, I’ve got this guys back if he needs me always and completely. One of the best people I know, and that’s the truth, he just plays by his rules, views the world very differently than most and has been fucked constantly. Seeing how everything evolved here infuriates me. The news is out so better to address than not, and for my own sake, not really on his behalf. I’ve seen drunk guys get in Nick’s face and avoid serious injury because he’s a martial artist and a killer but knows that and he’s passed the point of needing to prove it. He doesn’t even act tough to people… There is no scenario where Nick would put his hands on anyone unless it was necessary self-defense, and then watch the fuck out. Moving on, the girl who is accusing him is the most deranged and insane I’ve met to date. She has been obsessed with and stalked Nick for maybe 2 years now. Suicide attempts, calls to his family from fake numbers, thousand of calls a day – yes thousands, showing up everywhere he goes following his story… He changed his number to get away but Vegas is small and they crossed paths again. She left their interaction feeling some type of way yesterday and put in a fake report to get even and have him arrested which she’s threatened to do many times before as well. I can’t even fully digest this whole thing because of how insane and wrong it is. If Nick’s at fault it is because he has chosen again and again and again not to make a police report against her like I’ve advised profusely in the past when she has hit him or broke his phone or broke into his place or stolen things from him or threatened suicide, etc. Everyone is going to think what they think when they see the news so it’s very important for me to at least put something out that is actually factual. #fakenews
