Report: UFC Octagon vixen arrested
Octagon vixen Arianny Celeste missed her duties at UFC 146 on Saturday night after her arrest earlier in the day on allegations of domestic violence, according to a published report.
TMZ, citing the Clark County (Nevada) Detention Center website, reported that Celeste was taken into custody at 7:30 a.m. and held on $3,000 bond.
The 26-year-old Celeste, whose real name is Arianny Lopez, no longer was listed on the detention center's website on Saturday night — but a clerk at the jail confirmed to FOXSports.com that the curvaceous card-carrier had been detained there earlier in the day and no longer was in custody.
No other details were immediately available.
Yahoo Sports reported that while Celeste missed the prelims at UFC 146, she was spotted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena during the later fights.
UFC president Dana White told Yahoo: "Arianny is our baby. She has been with us for over five years. She is a good girl and an amazing ambassador for the UFC. I don't know all the details of what happened, but we have her back and support her 100 percent."
Celeste has been a UFC Octagon girl since 2006, and posed for Playboy magazine in November 2010.
As of Saturday night, Celeste had not issued a statement, and she made no mention of the alleged incident on her Twitter page.
On her Twitter bio, she describes herself as a "lover not a fighter.''
