UFC heavyweight Christian Morecraft has been arrested and charged with a DUI. According to MMA Junkie, he was arrested after he refused to take a breathalyzer test. A local newspaper offered more info about the incident (via the Barnstable Hyannis Patch):
Police stopped a motor vehicle in the vicinity of 480 Main Street, Hyannis. They arrested Christian C. Morecraft, 25, of Hyannis and charged him with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, driving so as to endanger, speeding and with driving with no license in possession.
Morecraft commented on the charge on his Facebook page:
"A good man is an honest man and I made a mistake."
Morecraft (7-3) is currently on a two-fight losing streak and hasn't stepped in the cage since a knockout loss to Pat Barry in January. The UFC has not commented on the issue as of yet.
