Darren Till was arrested Thursday in Tenerife, Spain for allegedly trashing a hotel room and stealing a taxi, according to Spanish outlet ElDia.es.

The UFC welterweight contender and four other Brits allegedly damaged furniture and emptied fire extinguishers at a hotel in Costa Adeje. After being kicked out, the group travelled to a different hotel but was denied a room, according to the report.

A taxi was called to pick the group up, per the report, but Till and one other person allegedly got into the vehicle while the driver was loading the trunk with their luggage and drove off.

Till, 26, and the others were arrested in nearby La Caleta after the National Police intercepted the vehicle, per the report.

Bloody Elbow was unable to reach police Sunday in attempt to confirm the report of Till’s arrest.

Till has lost two straight in the Octagon. The Liverpool native challenged Tyron Woodley for the 170-pound title last September at UFC 228, but fell via second-round submission. In his last bout, he was knocked out by Jorge Masvidal.
