More details on now former UFC fighter Luis Pena have emerged in the form of audio from the 911 call that led to his recent arrest for domestic violence and battery.
TMZ.com obtained the 911 call audio made by a woman who said she was Pena’s girlfriend. At the start of the call, she identified him as being in the UFC and said he was using drugs or alcohol when he allegedly choked her and punched her.
“Well, I wasn’t trying to snitch,” the woman said on the call. “But since my boyfriend wants to be an asshole – he put his hands on me, and he’s got to go.”
When asked for more details by the 911 operator, the woman alleged Pena got physical with her two days prior, and then again just before she called for help from police.
“He punched me in the face,” she said. “But he did this also two days ago, I have the marks. I have a Band-Aid on my back. I have everything to prove it. So I would like the police to come and I want them to remove him so I can get my things and go the f*ck home.”
The woman also said the police were brought out another time prior to the call that led to Pena’s arrest – but that her refusal to give them more details meant they couldn’t do anything.
“(The police) were mad because I wouldn’t cooperate because I didn’t want to snitch on him,” she said. “But unfortunately, I have to now. So I would like them to come back.
“We have a no contact order, so technically we shouldn’t even be living together. I really need the cops to come and get him out now, because I have scratches and bruises all over me from him. I need him gone. I’m done, and I need help … please.”
This past Saturday, the former UFC lightweight was arrested in Deerfield Beach, Fla., on misdemeanor charges of domestic violence and simple battery. He was booked into the Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s probable cause affidavit, the arresting officer said Pena struck the woman with a closed fist multiple times. He also allegedly hit a second woman who tried to stop him.
Pena bonded out of jail and signed an Order of Pretrial Release Conditions for domestic violence the day after his arrest. That order says he must stay 500 feet away from the alleged victim, her home and her place of employment at all times.
Pena, 28, last competed at UFC on ESPN 22 in April. The promotion released him from his contract Tuesday.
