By: Chris Taylor

UFC heavyweight Christian Morecraft (7-3 MMA, 1-3 UFC) was arrested this past weekend and charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence, reckless driving, speeding and driving without a license. Morecraft reportedly was arrested when he refused to take a breathalyzer test. He was later released on bail. A local newspaper shed some more light about the incident:

Police stopped a motor vehicle in the vicinity of 480 Main Street, Hyannis. They arrested Christian C. Morecraft, 25, of Hyannis and charged him with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, driving so as to endanger, speeding and with driving with no license in possession.

Morecraft commented on the charge via his facebook page:

“A good man is an honest man and I made a mistake.”

Morecraft made his octagon debut back at UFC 117, where he suffered a knockout loss to Stefan Struve. He rebounded from the loss by defeating Sean McCorkle via submission in March of 2011. Christian is currently riding a two-fight  losing streak, which includes a knockout loss to Pat Barry in his latest octagon appearance.
