UFC flyweight Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall was arrested on Tuesday in Irvine, Calif. MMAWeekly.com confirmed the arrest with the Laguna Beach Police Department.

McCall, according to an initial report by Stu News Laguna, was identified by undercover Laguna Beach detectives and DEA agents that were working on an investigation.

MMAWeekly.com spoke to McCall’s manager Jason House who stated that McCall’s arrest was actually under much different circumstances.

According to House, McCall was driving home on Tuesday when an unmarked police car recognized his vehicle from past occurrences and pulled him over.  The police ran McCall’s plates and they found an outstanding warrant in his name.

The warrant stemmed from a ticket issued in June for McCall driving under a suspended license.  McCall apparently paid the fines, but did not make a scheduled court appearance due to a miscommunication and a warrant was issued.

Because McCall was on parole from previous charges and a warrant was issued in his name, the UFC flyweight must spend a mandatory time of 30 days in jail with his release date currently scheduled for Sept 13.  McCall’s vehicle, home and other areas were searched as part of protocol from his previous arrests, but his manager says he’s only been charged with driving under a suspended license.

According to the Superior Court of California online directory, McCall is listed as currently in jail, but has only been charged with driving under a suspended license.

The Laguna Beach Police Department, however, would only confirm to MMAWeekly.com that McCall was indeed arrested on Tuesday and that he was no longer in their custody.
