http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef0120a679a626970c-500wiHuntington Beach police have arrested mixed martial arts fighter Tito Ortiz on suspicion of domestic violence, and his girlfriend, adult film star Jenna Jameson, identified herself as the alleged victims.

Huntington Beach police Lt. Mike Reynolds said officers responded to a call of a domestic violence report in 16700 block of Baruna Lane shortly before 10 a.m. Monday.

Police would not comment on the injuries the victim suffered or confirm that Jamison was the victim, but Reynolds said Ortiz was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence based on evidence at the scene.

Jameson was quoted on video and on Twitter on Monday morning as saying she was the victim. Officials said the victim's father called authorities about the alleged abuse.

Ortiz has not yet posted bail, but officials expect he will later in the day.

Reynolds said all parties involved in the incident have been fully cooperating with investigators. "There has been no reluctance to talk to us," he said.
