Chris Leben in the clink for DUI

A mere 5 days after being officially added to the UFC85 card, Chris Leben has landed himself in an Oregon jail for driving under the influence of alcohol. And if that wasn’t bad enough, it looks like that was a violation of his probation terms … god knows what he did to end up on probation but I’ll bet it also involved alcohol and possibly his fist in someone’s face.

Information is still pretty scarce since this literally JUST HAPPENED (props to the internet for spreading people’s misery and misfortune so quickly), so we’ll keep you up to date as we find out more. It’s important to note that certain kinds of probation have different clauses regarding drinking (my probation for example said I wasn’t allowed to drink around children, how annoying is that? They fucking make you WANT to drink), so perhaps he wasn’t actually drunk driving (aka being a fucking asshole), but simply violating some kind of probation imposed limit. Anyways, after the jump there’s a nice mugshot of Leben you can print out and put in your wallet. Then you can tell people he’s your boyfriend!

Props to jackal Pillow for the email love. I owe ya one!

    Is this card cursed or what?

    Leben looks like a raving lunatic. The kind of guy who would accost you on the street and yell “A marmalade ate my brain!” whilst banging a wooden spoon on an empty tin of weiners. And shitting himself. Hard.

    dude, put a huge self-serving “BREAKING NEWS EXCLUSIVE” thing at the top o the post.

    fucked up move by leben. i got one of those almost a decade ago and it fucked my life up for years, i’m just lucky i was the only one hurt. fucking stupid thing to do. of course, it could be a .0001 over the limit thing where he wasn’t even buzzed but the cop didn’t like him.

    whatever. he had too much on the line to be fuckin around like that.

    damn apparently MMAJunkie posted it at 11:43 but I checked there before I sent it in.. weird.

    Leben, by the look of that picture, appears to have been going through a rough spot in his life.

    Although, his whole life has most likely been a rough spot, either way, he looks really shitty in that pic.

    Uh oh!

  • garth

    maybe he can go salvage evan tanner’s boat, fix it up, and sink it again.

    Chris Leben was not arrested this week for DUI.

    When Chris moved to Hawaii he was in the process of completing classes for his probation on an old DUI in Portland Oregon. We worked hard to get his probation transferred to Hawaii but were unsuccessful.

    When he got the call to fight Bisping on June 7th in London he knew what he had to do.

    He immediately flew to Oregon and turned himself in on the probation violation. The warrant was a “no bail” warrant so he will have to sit in jail for 8-10 days before he gets a hearing. The moment he appeared before the judge after turning himself in the warrant was revoked and he is able to get his VISA for London.

    Chris is in excellent shape and will finish his training camp with the help of Matt Hume.

    Chris has worked hard the past year to grow both physically, mentally and spiritually. The actions he took to make this fight happen in London show this growth. Chris would like everyone to know he accepts responsibility for his past actions and will face the consequences and continue forward on his journey.

    Bad luck for Chris, nope!!. He’s a good fighter; plenty of gut and determination but his skills are bound by his 2d personality, he should use this run in with the law to enhance his persona. He otherwise to me will be boring win or lose.

  • Peterw

    I use to hate Chris Leben, ever sicne he pissed on that dudes pillow in TUF, but despite the rap music ect, he is a good entertaining fighter.

  • P W

    His eyes are RIDICULOUSLY close together!

  • MadMan

    Damn he’s got a BIG head.

    I can see some intoxication in those eyes…
    maybe he got drunk & then turned himself
    in for the probation violation.

    “my probation for example said I wasn’t allowed to drink around children”

    What are you a pedophile?

  • Matt (but I signed up as Mr. Unbelievable Pants)

    Dudes, you need to post a correction and soon… he ain’t behind bars, by all accounts…

  • Tertio

    Damn his eyes ARE close together…the picture reminds me of someone looking at the split image of his face at the edge of a mirror.

  • Beer_tester

    He’s got a head like a melted frisby
