Tito Ortiz was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after he crashed his car on the freeway this morning.

The 38-year-old MMA fighter, whose birth name is Jacob Christopher Ortiz, was taken into custody around 4 a.m. after he lost control of his 2012 Porsche Panamera and struck a concrete median northbound on the 405 Freeway near Sepulveda and Santa Monica boulevards, according to KTLA.

TMZ reported Ortiz blew his breathalyzer test, hitting a 0.12 on it—much more than the 0.08 limit. Apparently, he had been partying at the Playboy Mansion for a BCS football party earlier that evening. Hours before the event, he posted this photo on Twitter:

Although the athlete had two passengers in his car, they weren't injured, reported the Los Angeles Times. However, the Porsche was moderately damaged.

Ortiz, who hails from Huntington Beach, is popularly known for his UFC fighting and his tumultuous relationship with ex-girlfriend and former porn star Jenna Jameson.
