Kimo Leopoldo Arrested for Meth Possession

TMZ with the scoop:

TMZ has learned the famously tatted MMA badboy was arrested by Tustin police Monday afternoon after they spotted the 6'3", 235 lb fighter wearing a Long Beach Police Dept. jumpsuit, complete with patches and a cloth badge -- a badge only cops are allowed to wear. The officers -- the real officers -- then searched Kimo's ride, where they claim to have found "a small amount of what is believed to be meth."

Impersonating a police officer is a pretty serious offense in and of itself.  When you add in the meth I think we can expect Kimo to spend a fair amount of time in jail after this one.

Adding another level of the bizarre to the story was the recent push by Kimo to be Executive Officer of the California State Athletic Commission.  For a man to say that he should be in charge of cleaning up a corrupt situation and then go out and impersonate a cop while holding meth.......words fail me.
