    My bad for no direct link or cool mug shot lol but was reading it on B/E and bloodyelbow apparently it was with a friend.

    Bleacher Report

    Retired UFC star B.J. Penn was arrested late Saturday night after allegedly assaulting a friend during an altercation at a Maui hotel.

    The arrest was first reported by MauiWatch.com and later confirmed by Steph Daniels of Bloody Elbow. The Maui County Police Department declined to give any specifics about the case when contacted by Daniels, as did members of Penn's camp.

    MauiWatch.com's report indicates Penn "severely assaulted" a friend at the Four Seasons Maui. Alcohol is believed to be involved, as Penn was described as being inebriated.

    No other details about the case are known at this time. The former UFC light heavyweight champion is from Hawaii and still lives in the area. He retired from mixed martial arts at age 35 last June after losing to Frankie Edgar via TKO at The Ultimate Fighter 19 finale. It was Penn's third straight defeat.

    He finished his career with a 16-10-2 record.

    Bloodyelbow.com

    Earlier today, Maui online news site MauiWatch.com released a report that former UFC lightweight champion and crowd favorite, B.J. Penn, had been arrested late Saturday night after an altercation between him and one of his friends. Sources say that the scuffle took place at the Four Seasons Hotel Maui and that, when police responded to the call, they encountered "an inebriated Penn."

    Bloody Elbow spoke to the Maui County Police Department and was informed that Penn was indeed arrested. They were unable to provide further details other than the fact that he has already been released.

    We also contacted a management official at the Four Seasons Hotel who declined to comment, citing privacy issues.

    Finally, we reached out to several people believed to be associated with Penn's camp as well as the editor-in-chief of his website, Pedro Carrasco, who at the time of this posting has not replied back to our inquiries.

    Bloody Elbow will keep our readers updated on this story as more information becomes available.

    One phone call to Nick Diaz would set BJ straight.

    Sources say Penn looked sharp early but succumbed after fatigue set in several minutes into the altercation.

    That was, in Rogan's words: "world-class showing of how to dispatch a friend"
