Tito Ortiz Arrested in Cuffs - Video / Jenna Jameson: I'm Pressing Charges

Jenna Jameson just told our photog she plans on pressing charges against Tito Ortiz
Fighting back tears, a clearly emotional Jenna was driving away from her home
in Huntington Beach, CA moments ago -- when she stopped and told our photog, "I'm gonna be alright."

Jenna -- who was wearing giant sunglasses -- continued, "My babies are alright ... everything's OK .. he's in jail."

Jenna was accompanied by her father -- the man who we've learned made the initial call to 911. was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence on Monday, said Lt. Mike Reynolds of the Huntington Beach Police Department. was one of the first to report police activity outside of Ortiz’s private residence on Monday morning.

The alleged victim’s identity will not be released at this time by the department, said Reynolds, though he said officers had been called to the scene by the victim’s father and that the victim wasn’t taken to the hospital.

The 35-year-old Ortiz is the father of 13-month-old twins, Jesse James and Journey Jette, with former adult film star Jenna Jameson, who resides with the fighter in Huntington Beach, Calif. Ortiz and Jameson are not married.

Ortiz, who is currently starring as a coach opposite rival Chuck Liddell on Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter 11” airing Wednesdays, was handcuffed at the scene and transported to the Huntington Beach Police Department this morning for booking and arraignment, said Reynolds.

Reynolds said Ortiz will have the opportunity to post bail once he is arraigned; the district attorney’s office will review the case and decide whether to press charges.

One of the UFC’s biggest draws at the early part of the decade, Ortiz’s career had recently been cast in doubt with news that he wouldn’t be facing Liddell in a third match at UFC 115 on June 12 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, to culminate the end of TUF’s 11th season. Instead, former middleweight champion Rich Franklin will face Liddell instead, fueling rumors that a possibly injured Ortiz leaves the reality show early.

Ortiz has dropped three of his last four bouts, including a second TKO loss to Liddell at UFC 66 in December 2006 in Las Vegas. Ortiz drew with former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans at UFC 73 on July 2007 in Sacramento, Calif.
