Whitehead, a current Strikeforce heavyweight and one-time UFC fighter who appeared on The Ultimate Fighter 2, had been sought for questioning for several days, before finally turning himself in on Wednesday.

While serving a warrant at Whitehead’s home relating to the alleged sexual assault, police discovered more than 50 marijuana plants, though charges have yet to be filed for the drugs.

Whitehead (24-8) earned a unanimous decision over Kevin Randleman last June in his Strikeforce debut before surrering a first-round KO to Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in his most-recent fight in December.
