    UFC veteran Luis Pena was arrested on Friday by Florida police and charged with robbery by sudden snatching, battery and criminal mischief, according to online jail records.

    Pena, 27, was picked up by the Coral Springs Police Department on an extradition warrant issued by a police department in another county in Florida. The name of the department and details on the charges weren’t immediately available, but a police spokesperson said the Ultimate Fighter 27alum was picked up on an anonymous tip.

    “It was actually called in by another police department for us to go and get him, and then we had an independent person tell us where he was, and they took him into custody under that warrant,” Christian Swinson, a public information officer for the Coral Springs police, told MMA Fighting.

    Two of the charges – robbery and battery – are designated as pending trial. Swinson said Pena could have missed an arraignment hearing on the charges, or the charges could have been added in the course of investigation after an initial charge, triggering the warrant that led to his arrest.

    Robbery by sudden snatching is classified as a third-degree felony in Florida and is punishable by up to five years and $5,000 in fines. Those penalties can be increased if the offender was using a deadly weapon.

    Well I'm kinda surprised, always seemed like a cool headed dude.
    At least his nickname makes sense now.

    Never cared for the lanky goof anyway.

    Dana. Fire him immediately. This is a black eye on our sport, just as we’re finally getting legitimized.

    Idk what it is with Peña tbh. From what I've seen in AKA training videos he seems to be a sweet kid, perhaps a little slow. While we point and laugh at him, maybe he's easy to influence by bad intentioned others to do some dumb shit. IIRC this isn't the first time he's had some run ins with the law. Maybe the UFC just pays garbage and he's resorting to petty crime.

    Or it could all be a facade and he's really just a thug. Who knows
