Hermes Franca arrested in Jupiter under suspicion of DUI



"Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight competitor, Hermes Franca, was arrested last night by the Jupiter Police Department in Jupiter, Fla for a DUI offense ... According to the report, Franca was arrested at 2:38am by an officer who suspected the fighter was under the influence of alcohol or drugs."

It's been a seesaw ride for the former UFC 155-pound number contender Hermes Franca the last 18 months. He recently returned from a 12-month steroids suspension, losing to Frank Edgar in his July comeback fight and then rebounding against his former Brazilian jiu-jitsu teacher Marcus Aurelio at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" just last month. Now this. He is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
