Per MMA Junkie:

"Unfortunately, Jenna relapsed this morning and suffered the consequences of that," Chip Matthews, Ortiz's personal lawyer, said at the press conference. "We're here because Tito was trying to help her."

Ortiz denied harming Jameson during the incident, which allegedly took place Monday morning at the couple's home in Huntington Beach, Calif. Nevertheless, Ortiz was arrested by Huntington Beach Police at 11:34 a.m. on suspicion of domestic abuse after Jameson's father called them to the residence. Ortiz posted a $25,000 bond around 4:30 p.m. He has not been formally charged with a crime.


"My parents have gone through an addiction, and I've seen a mirror again, and I'm not going to let my family go through that," he said. "I speak from the heart, and as I say ... I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be OK."

Jameson spoke to KCAL-TV News outside her home on late Monday and said she suffered a torn rotator cuff in the alleged incident, though Ortiz did not strike her.

"He didn't beat me," Jameson said. "We had an argument, and it escalated, and things got out of control ... the cops were called, and because there were visible marks on me, they took him to jail."

TMZ has more from Jenna's side of the story:

Jenna claims that during an argument Monday morning she, "said something very hurtful to his ego." She alleges that Tito then grabbed her and, "threw me into the bathtub and tore two ligaments in my shoulder."

Tito's attorney Chip Matthews strongly denies that, saying ... "He did not put his hands on her, he did not hit her, he did not do anything to her."

Matthews claims Tito found pills in Jenna's pants pocket -- and that when Tito confronted her she had an "emotional meltdown."

Jenna says Tito's addiction allegation is, "completely false" and "the last nail in the coffin" for their relationship.
