Boxer Victor Ortiz Arrested for Rape … Charged w/ 3 Felonies
Ex-boxing champ Victor Ortiz — who appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” — has been charged with 3 counts of felony sexual assault, including rape … officials say.
The 31-year-old — who also had roles in ‘Expendables 3’ and “Southpaw” — surrendered to authorities in Oxnard, CA on Tuesday.
According to court records, the alleged incident took place inside of a home in Oxnard on March 19. The female accuser contacted police that same day and filed a report accusing Ortiz of sexual assault.
The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office has charged the boxer with 3 felony counts — forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and forcible digital penetration.
He was booked, posed for a mug shot, and bail was set at $100,000.
Ortiz is slated to fight Sunday night in Ontario — but we’re guessing that will likely be called off very soon.
