B.J. Penn Arrested On Suspicion Of DUI



There is no question that B.J. Penn’s legacy inside the octagon will live on forever. However, the legacy he is leaving in his life after fighting now is super alarming as the 42-year-old was arrested again. This is the second DUI arrest for the two-division UFC champion. Last February Penn was arrested for DUI after flipping his truck. As if the DUI’s are not bad enough Penn also has been in the habit of getting drunk and starting street fights. You will see a lot of people hope that B.J. gets the help he needs but that can only happen if he is ready to accept that there is a problem.

The UFC Hall of Famer’s arrest came after police received a reckless driving complaint. Penn was eventually released after an investigation, but his blood-alcohol level was not provided. Additionally, a video of what appears to be a belligerent Penn being guided into a police car surfaced on Monday. Further details regarding Penn’s latest arrest were not provided by authorities. His problematic behavior outside the octagon is threatening to change the way the fans view him and that is really sad. B.J. Penn is one of the best martial artists to grace the octagon. Legacy carries on long after your career ends. Let’s hope we see a better B.J. Penn moving forward.
