Los Angeles County DA declines to prosecute domestic battery charge against Chuck Liddell

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office have dropped charges against UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell.

According to TMZ Sports, the Los Angeles County DA will decline to prosecute Liddell or his wife Heidi Northcott after he was initially arrested on Oct. 11 after a     physical altercation at their home.

The official explanation was a “lack of sufficient evidence.”

Liddell was booked at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station in Agoura Hills and held on a $20,000 USD bond before he was released on same morning of Oct. 11. In a statement to the media, he explained that in order to protect a mental health situation, he accepted being arrested and being taken to jail.

Liddell, 51, then filed for divorce last Friday in a Los Angeles court after a 10 year marriage with Northcott, 41, that produced two young children.

Known as “The Iceman,” Liddell is a former two-time UFC light heavyweight champion. He was inducted in 2009 and retired from mixed martial arts in 2010. He made a recent return in 2018 to fight Tito Ortiz for a third time, losing via TKO and retiring again.
