Nick Diaz Citrus Heights PoliceUFC welterweight Nick Diaz caused quite a stir late Sunday night when he posted photos to Twitter and Instagram showing him on the side of the road with Citrus Heights police cars in the background, lights flashing.

Diaz was involved in an incident that took place with two individuals arrested by the Citrus Heights Police Department, according to Sgt. David Moranz. Diaz was not one the individuals arrested.

“(Diaz) was a passenger in a vehicle on Sunday night, March 17, around 11 p.m. (PT),” Moranz told MMAWeekly.com. “The vehicle was stopped for driving the wrong way on a one-way street in downtown Sacramento.”

Diaz had just returned to California from Montreal, having lost a five-round unanimous decision to UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 158 on Saturday night.

The driver of the car that Diaz was a passenger of was arrested on a misdemeanor warrant, while another passenger was arrested for possession of concentrated cannabis (commonly referred to as hashish).

Diaz was not accused of or charged with any violations.

“He was cooperative and released without incident,” Sgt. Moranz added.

Sgt. Moranz was also one of the officers on the scene.

Diaz posted the photos with little information accompanying them, saying only “Yes i am on the sidewalk :/” and “We lost Alix and Vic” alongside his Instagram pictures, leading to much conjecture.

In the end, according to Sgt. Moranz, Diaz was a passenger in the vehicle and released from the scene without incident.
