Pearson was driving in Las Vegas at 4am when the police apparently spotted his car swerving from side to side on the road. They pulled Ross over and issued a field sobriety test which resulted in them arresting Pearson and taking him to the Clark County Detention Center on suspicion of DUI.
News of the arrest was first reported on TMZ.com earlier today, Pearson has yet to respond or comment on the incident.
Twenty-seven-year-old Pearson won his last fight at UFC 141 where he defeated Junior Assunção via decision in his featherweight debut. He is scheduled to face Cub Swanson at UFC on FX 4 on June 22nd in his second outing as a featherweight. Ross is currently helping out as part of Dominick Cruz’s coaching team on “The Ultimate Fighter Live” and this is the reason for his current presence in Las Vegas.
