Ex-UFC champ Ricco Rodriguez — who also appeared on the first season of “Celebrity Rehab” — has been arrested on suspicion of DUI, our sources has learned.
According to law enforcement, Rodriguez was busted in L.A. yesterday morning at 1:25 AM. He was subsequently booked for misdemeanor DUI. Details surrounding the arrest are unclear.
He was released several hours later on $5,000 bail.
Ricco”s rep tells our sources, “When Ricco was arrested the police officer said he blew a .1. When they had him take another breathalyzer at the station only a few minutes later he blew a .08. We are wondering how a breathalyzer dropped .02 points after a very short time.” Ricco”s rep says they plan to fight the charges.
Law enforcement tells us, Ricco voluntarily took a breathalyzer test … and it”s not uncommon to get slightly varying results.
