Former WEC and Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz was arrested by Las Vegas police on May 24. Now the mixed martial arts veteran is facing additional felony charges concerning the incident. Nick Diaz was sent to the Clark County Detention Center on a bail of $18,000 for the allegedly assault on a female individual. The alleged victim was reportedly transported to a local hospital after the incident. Diaz was initially charged with a felony domestic battery by strangulation and a misdemeanor domestic battery. Taking to Instagram, Nick Diaz's friend came to the fighter's defense and claimed that the police report was falsified by Diaz's alleged stalker. Check it out below: “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” https://www.instagram.com/p/BjNoBCyBhTV/?utm_sourceig_embed As reported by MMA Junkie, prosecutors with the Clark County (Nevada) District Attorney’s office filed two new felony counts against Nick Diaz on Tuesday. Diaz will now face a felony battery constituting domestic violence by strangulation and a felony battery domestic violence resulting in substantial bodily harm. Diaz now faces three felony charges and a misdemeanor. Diaz's case has been moved to July 31 following the new charges. Speaking to MMA Junkie, Diaz's attorney Ross Goodman offered the following statement on the matter. “We were surprised that the state filed an amended complaint in court this morning given that there is no new evidence that would warrant adding charges. Regardless, we are confident that that truth will come to light vindicating Mr. Diaz after a thorough cross-examination exposing (the alleged victim’s) inconsistent and contradictory allegations.” For more MMA news click here.
