According to Spanish outlet ElDia.es, UFC fighter Darren Till was one of five British citizens arrested in Tenerife, Spain on Thursday for causing damage to a hotel and accidentally stealing a taxi.

Sources told the publication that the group broke furniture and emptied fire extinguishers at a lodging complex they were staying in. After being removed from the Costa Adeje premises, the group travelled to another hotel in nearby ​​El Duque, but was refused rooms.

The report outlines that a taxi was called for the group. As the driver loaded the back of the car with luggage, Till and another person allegedly got into the car and drove to La Caleta, where the vehicle, a Volkswagen Caddy, was intercepted by a patrol of the National Police.

The Daily Mail’s report notes that the arrests happened early Thursday morning and that the other four British citizens that were arrested have not been named.

MMA Fighting has attempted to contact the Spanish police and Till’s management to confirm the report, but has yet to receive a response.
