UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste was arrested early last Saturday morning for domestic violence, and information on the incident has started to become available.
Celeste, whose fame stretches from the UFC to Playboy, allegedly kick her boyfriend, 34 year-old Praveen Chandra, in the face on a limo ride after learning of his text message relationship with other individuals.
However, that specific action did not lead to a call to the authorities.
Following the incident, the two began fighting again in a Wynn Las Vegas hotel room. According to Celeste, whose real name is Arianny Lopez, Chandra choked her and grabbed her arm. Chandra says that Celeste threw a pair of vases at him during the scuffle.
Both individuals were arrested. Celeste was released on $3,000 bail, allowing her to join the UFC 146 festivities later that night.
Celebrity gossip website TMZ has acquired a copy of Celeste’s mug shot and was also contacted by UFC President Dana White, who released the following statement:
“Arianny is our baby. She has been with us for over five years. She is a good girl and an amazing ambassador for UFC. I don’t know all the details of what happened but we have her back and support her 100%.”
Celeste has resumed posting on her Twitter account, though she says her Facebook fan page will be taken offline for the time being.
