No Charges Filed Against Chuck Liddell in Domestic Violence Case
No charges have been filed against Chuck Lindell for an alleged domestic violence incident involving the former UFC champion and his wife last week.
TMZ Sports was the first to report that the Los Angeles Prosecutor chose not to prosecute the couple after a quarrel that became natural. According to the report, the DA spoke with Liddell, his wife, Heidi Northcott and the couple’s daughter, and found that a verbal altercation became natural, but no one was seriously injured as a result of the dispute.
The couple’s daughter reportedly told prosecutors that she saw Lindell and Northcott pushing each other. Lindell ended up with a red mark on his face, while his wife had no visible injuries.
Lindell was arrested for a misdemeanor last week when police in Los Hills, California, called home. Lindell later issued a statement claiming he was the victim in the incident and tried to “protect a family mental health issue from the public sphere.” Lindell filed for divorce from Northcott late last week.
Known as “The Iceman”, Liddell was one of the UFC’s most popular fighters during his heyday as a 205-pound champion. After eight years of retirement, Lindell returned to an event promoted at the Golden Boy MMA, where he suffered a first-round defeat by Tito Ortiz on November 24, 2018.
