ORIGINAL POST, JAN. 6, 11:32 A.M.: The fight of Tito Ortiz's life may not be in the octagon, but rather in the courthouse, where the "Bad Boy of Huntington Beach" has so far managed to win custody of his twin sons away from his hot mess baby mama ex, Jenna Jameson. But after being able to point to the porn royal's drug abuse, erratic behavior and Orange County drunken-driving history, the UFC legend is now dealing with own DUI arrest this morning.

At Home with the Ortizes: Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz's Custody War Spreads to YouTube

Ortiz was arrested for suspected misdemeanor DUI after a non-injury, 3:50 a.m. crash on the northbound 5 freeway in the West Los Angeles area, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

The 38-year-old was driving his 2012 Porsche Panamera on the freeway "when he lost control of his vehicle and struck the concrete center median" south of Santa Monica Boulevard, the CHP reported.

The Porsche sustained moderate right front and right rear damage, but Ortiz and an unnamed passenger were not hurt, according to the CHP.

After it was determined the fighter was under the influence of alcohol, he was placed under arrest, transported to the Los Angeles Police Department's 77th Division for medical clearance and chemical testing, and booked without incident, the CHP adds.

No tweets about this yet from Club Jenna.

UPDATE NO. 1, JAN. 7, 12:36 P.M.: Not long after this post went up Monday, Jameson posted the expected tweet:

UPDATE NO. 2, JAN. 28, 1:40 P.M.: Tito Ortiz has been charged with two counts of DUI for crashing his Porsche into a concrete median around 4 a.m. Jan. 6 in Los Angeles and later blowing .12 on the breathalyzer, TMZ reports.

The maximum punishment if found guilty is six months in jail and a $1,000 fine but probation and completion of an alcohol education course is more likely for a first offense.

TMZ had previously reported "The Bad Boy of Huntington Beach" was partying at the Playboy Mansion in the hours before the crash.

Feel bad for him. Shouldn't be driving that drunk though. Public transportation here sucks though, but still he shoulda just stayed over at the mansion or gotten a hotel or something. Cheaper than a DUI i'm sure.

those kind of men assume that thheyre so tough for theyve trained to beat an opponent's head in and possibly cripple them after a "match" is done. The truly tough men dont make any income from hostility/brutality/violenc etc and theyve true self discipline/self control in all things and in perticular, substances. Real adults dont ever feel the need to "party" and if such occasion warrants a visit,a true adult/true martial artist-warrior doesnt lose control or make of fool of themselevs nor endanger anyones life unnecessarily by any means whatsoever. Shame on Mr Tito for not being much of a real man nor an adult and thanks to God he didnt kill anyone,yet, along his "way" either in the ring nor on the road.
