Nick Diaz Detained By Police Following Loss to GSP
One night after being dominated by Georges St. Pierre at UFC 158, Nick Diaz and some of his homies were apparently stopped and detained by police. Diaz tweeted the above photo afterwards — with the caption “**** they got us ” — but later deleted the post. However, two more photos from the incident remain on his Instagram account, which we’ve placed below…
(Caption: “Yes i am on the sidewalk :/ “)
(Caption: “We lost Alix and Vic”)
I’m guessing Alix is his tax attorney? Unfortunately, we don’t have any details about what led to Diaz being sat down on a sidewalk by some cops, or exactly where this happened, but I think we can assume it had something to do with marijuana smoke comically pouring from the windows of Vic’s 1982 El Dorado as he slowly completed a left turn at a red light with his hazard lights on. We’ll update you when we know more.
Sgt. David Moranz from the Citrus Heights PD tells TMZ the driver of the car was arrested on an outstanding warrant and another passenger in the car was arrested for possession of concentrated cannabis ... but Diaz 'was never arrested and was released without incidents from the scene.'
Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
