UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell was arrested on domestic violence charges Monday in Los Angeles.

TMZ Sports reported Liddell was allegedly involved in an argument with his wife, Heidi Liddell, that became physical. A judge set bail at $20,000.

According to the TMZ report, Liddell's wife did not require medical attention. A follow-up report indicated that Heidi Liddell was also cited for her part in the matter, but Chuck Liddell asked police to allow her to stay home with their child.

Chuck Liddell later released a statement saying Heidi was the aggressor.

"This was one of the many times I have tried to shield a family mental health issue from the public purview," Liddell said in a statement. "It has become painfully apparent that this cannot continue, as our private life has now reached a public breaking point."

Liddell and his wife have been together for more than a decade. The 51-year-old has fought only once since 2010, with his most recent bout coming in 2018 against Tito Ortiz.
