Former UFC star Chuck Liddell was arrested Monday morning for domestic violence.
Deputies responded to Liddell’s Hidden Hills, California, home around 12 a.m. after reports of a “family disturbance,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department reportedly told PEOPLE.
“Upon arrival deputies determined Charles Liddell and his wife had been involved in a physical altercation,” the department spokesperson wrote.
Liddell, 51, was arrested and charged with domestic battery. He was booked at the Lost Hills Sheriff Station, where he was later released on a $20,000 bond, jail records show.
Late Monday, the UFC Hall of Famer issued a statement to his Instagram, where he called the incident a “family mental health issue.”
He is expected to appear in court on December 8.
Liddell, known as “The Iceman,” is a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. He made his debut in 1998 and retired 12 years later in 2010. He returned to the ring in 2018 to face off against an old rival, Tito Ortiz.
