UFC heavyweight Christian
Morecraft was arrested this past weekend and charged with
operating a vehicle under the influence in Hyannis, Mass.
According to the Barnstable-Hyannis Patch (Mass.) website,
Morecraft was stopped by police near 480 Main Street in Hyannis on
Saturday. He was subsequently charged with operating a motor
vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, driving so as to

but police could not confirm whether the fighter was present that
Morecraft, a 25-year-old Massachusetts native, has compiled a 1-3
record in four UFC appearances. The 6-foot-6 heavyweight last
appeared at UFC on FX 1 in January, where he was knocked out by
Barry in the opening frame. Morecraft has also suffered Octagon
defeats to Matt
Mitrione and Stefan
Struve, with his lone UFC victory coming against Sean
McCorkle at UFC Fight Night 24 in 2011.
