Former Ultimate Fighting Championship star Chuck Liddell has been arrested and charged with domestic violence, according to multiple reports.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told CBS Sports that the UFC Hall of Famer, also known as “Iceman,” was booked into custody early Monday morning after police were called to reports of an alleged physical altercation with his wife, Heidi Northcott. She did not require medical attention, according to TMZ.

ESPN reports Liddell was being held on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station on $20,000 bail. He was booked just before 2 a.m., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Information Bureau (SIB); he was listed at 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds.

Liddell was released from jail late Monday morning and gave reporters a fist pump as he left in a Mercedes-Benz, according to TMZ.

No other details have been released.

USA Today reports Liddell married Northcott more than a decade ago. They had their first child together in 2011 and a second in 2013; he also has a daughter with MMA fighter Casey Noland.

Liddell, 51, was one of the biggest UFC stars until his retirement in 2010, capturing the light heavyweight championship and winning fights against big names like Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Vitor Belfort, Vernon White, and Wanderlei Silva. He returned to the cage for a fight with Ortiz in 2018 and was knocked out in the first round; he was stopped by KO/TKO in four straight bouts, according to ESPN.

Liddell was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame’s Pioneer Wing in 2009 and has remained in the public eye. He’s appeared on reality TV shows and more than a dozen movies, plus recently served as a referee for a Celebrity Boxing match between Aaron Carter and Lamar Odom.
