Bellator featherweight Daniel
was arrested Friday on traffic and drug charges in Fort
Broward Sheriff’s Office
Four charges were filed against the fighter: driving with a
suspended license, possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis,
possession of MDMA (ecstasy) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Straus is being held at the North Broward Bureau Detention Center
in Pompano Beach, Fla., on a bond of $2,200.
Straus, 28, was scheduled to contend for Bellator’s featherweight
title on April 4 but was forced to withdraw from that Bellator
95 appearance due to a broken hand. Instead, champion Pat Curran
will now face Season 7 tournament winner Shahbulat
A winner in 17 of his last 18 fights, Straus rebounded from his
loss to Patricio
Freire in Bellator’s Season 4 finals to capture the Season 6
crown last year, outpointing Jeremy
Spoon, Mike Corey
Sandro to earn a $100,000 payday and a guaranteed title shot.
Straus last saw action on Oct. 26, when he submitted UFC veteran
Robinson with a rear-naked choke at Bellator 78.
