victorortizFormer welterweight champion Victor Ortiz has reportedly been charged with two counts of driving under the influence after being arrested last year.

That’s according to TMZ, who reported the boxer was detained on September 24th in Ventura County, California, by police, who smelled alcohol in his vehicle after he was stopped.

In the report it’s suggested that the 29-year-old had a blood alcohol content of 0.15, which is said to trigger a “special allegation.” It means that should he be convicted, Victor would be looking at higher fines and longer jail time than a standard DUI offense.

Additionally, it’s noted Victor is currently on probation due to a battery offense from 2015. “If Ortiz’s probation is revoked because of the DUI—the judge could have him locked up,” per TMZ.

Not the best way to start the year.
