Christian Morecraft and Sean McCorkle at UFC Fight Night 24UFC heavyweight fighter Christian Morecraft, 25, was arrested over Labor Day weekend in Hyannis, Mass.

Barnstable police charged him with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, driving so as to endanger, speeding and driving with no license in possession.

Morecraft was pulled over on the evening of Sept. 1. He refused to take a breathalyzer test, leading to his arrest. He was eventually released on bail.

Morecraft later posted and apology on his Facebook page, saying, “A good man is an honest man and i made a mistake.” He went on to also apologize to the UFC, his community and family and friends.
