Published reports state that former UFC fighter Kimo Leopoldo was arrested on possession of a controlled substance in Long Beach, California on Monday afternoon.
TMZ was the first to report on the arrest earlier this afternoon.
Kimo, known just as much for his wide array of tattoos in addition to his fighting prowess, was spotted by police wearing a Long Beach Police Department uniform with right down to the patches and cloth badge. Officers searched Kimo’s vehicle where they found a small amount of what they believe to be meth.
The long-time veteran of the sport who once lost to UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie at UFC 3 was charged with possession of a controlled substance and remains in police custody. Police officials also will begin a full investigation as to how Leopoldo was able to obtain a police issue uniform.
