Nick Diaz’s mug shot has surfaced.

Diaz, 34, was arrested last Thursday and charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation, as well as misdemeanor domestic battery for an alleged incident of domestic violence against a female.

Officers from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department responded to a call last Thursday and were dispatched to a residence at approximately 7:20 p.m. PT. A person with knowledge of the case told MMAjunkie that 12 units arrived, the alleged victim was transported to a local hospital, and Diaz was combative with officers during his arrest.

MMAjunkie today obtained Diaz’s mug shot, which was taken at Clark County (Nev.) Detention Center. That’s where the UFC veteran and former Strikeforce champion was being held before he was released.

Diaz, 34, hasn’t fought in the UFC since Jan. 31, 2015, when he lost to Anderson Silva at UFC 183, a result that was later overturned to a no-contest because Silva tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and Diaz tested positive for marijuana. He became eligible to fight last month after he accepted a one-year suspensionfrom the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for missing three attempted drug tests during a 12-month span.
