Former MMA champ Tito Ortiz has been charged with two counts of driving under the influence stemming from a car crash earlier this month, according to TMZ.

The 39-year-old crashed his Porsche into a median while driving on a Los Angeles highway before cops said he blew a .12 blood-alcohol level when issued a breathalyzer test.

According to the report, Ortiz had been partying at the Playboy Mansion Jan. 6 before he and two passengers were involved in the accident.

The maximum penalty Ortiz can receive for a first-time offence is six months in jail and a small fine.
