According to a document obtained from ESPN by the Los Angeles County District attorney's office, Chuck Liddell, UFC legend, will not face any charges. He was arrested for domestic violence on Oct. 11.
The reason why prosecution would not proceed was "lackof sufficient evidence" and comments indicated that the arresting officer agreed. The document named Liddell and Heidi as suspects. Each face a charge for intimate partner violence.
This case was classified under a cross complaint, in which Liddell's wife and Liddell were accused of being the aggressors in a minor domestic violence incident. According to the document, Heidi was not injured. Liddell, however, had a slight red mark on his cheeks and a small mark near his chest. The Liddells' daughter was interviewed by police. She stated that she witnessed her parents pushing one another, but didn't see who caused it.
Liddell (51), filed for divorce at Los Angeles Superior Court Friday. According to online court records,
According to the LA County Sheriff's Information Bureau, Los Angeles County Sheriff deputies responded in the early hours of October 11 to the Liddells' Hidden Hills home. They were investigating a domestic disturbance. Officers took Liddell into custody for a domestic battery charge after determining that there had been an altercation. Later that morning, Liddell was released from custody on a $20,000 bond.
Liddell released his husband just hours later and posted an Instagram statement claiming that he was the victim, but that he would take his wife's place.
Liddell wrote that this was one of many times she tried to keep a family's mental health issues from the public eye. It is now painfully obvious that this cannot continue. Our private lives have reached a breaking point. As I guide our family through this difficult period, please respect our privacy.
