Former UFC fighter and season one “Ultimate Fighter” finalist Stephan Bonnar was pulled over and arrested for a DUI last weekend in Las Vegas. TMZ first broke the news of the arrest on Tuesday and now bodycam footage from one of the arresting officers has been released.
The video shows a barely conscious Bonnar being handcuffed while in the driver’s seat of his vehicle, and being pulled out onto the ground. At this point, Bonnar appears to swing his right hand at an officer, which may account for the resisting arrest charge that was given on top of the DUI. Bonnar was turned over and cuffed behind his back with an officer heard saying, “You picked the wrong group of guys dude.”
Bonnar is currently scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 26 on the charges.
Bonnar is best knows for his landmark fight against Forrest Griffin in the televised finals of the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” He did not reach the success Griffin did in his UFC career, but did have notable fights including one pay-per-view main event against Anderson Silva in Oct. 2013. Bonnar failed drug tests following a rematch with Griffin and also after the Silva bout
Bonnar moved on to Bellator and lost a decision to Tito Ortiz. He then had a stint in Impact Wrestling where he teamed with Moose in a tag team steel cage match against King Mo and Bobby Lashley at the Nov. 2017 Bound for Glory event.
