UFC Middleweight Chris “The Crippler” Leben was arrested earlier this week in Hawaii on suspicion of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) after crashing his truck into a wall. Hawaii News Now reports:
“Officers arrested Christian Leben, 30, a middleweight fighter known as the Crippler, on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant Tuesday. He was released from custody after posting $1,000 bail.”
“Police say Leben was driving on the west-bound side of the H1 Freeway just before 2 AM, when he lost control of his pickup and crashed into a wall near the Kapiolani Boulevard off ramp. He was allegedly driving without a license and without insurance.”
Leben, who has struggled with substance abuse for many years, served time for another DUI arrest back in 2008.
Leben (25-6) last fought for the UFC back in July, defeating Yoshihiro Akiyama by submission.
