Nate Diaz has found himself in legal trouble after being issued an arrest warrant for suspicion of second-degree battery in New Orleans.
The incident occurred on Friday, April 21, during Diaz’s attendance at the Misfits Boxing event called MF x DAZN X Series 6, where he was supporting his friend Chris Avila in the co-main event.
One of Diaz’s altercations began when reality TV star Chase DeMoor shouted something that Diaz didn’t like. In response, Diaz turned around and threw a water bottle, leading to security needing to separate them.
Later that night, Diaz’s team and DeMoor got into a brawl on Bourbon Street, where Diaz was seen choking out a man who looked like Logan Paul, leaving him to lay there out of it. The video of the incident went viral, and now the New Orleans Police Department wants answers.
“At or about 2:10am on Saturday April 22- NOPD’s Bourbon Street. Promenade officers and supervisors were alerted to a large altercation in the 400 block of Bourbon St. The officers were able to disperse the crowd.
