UFC lightweight Josh Neer was charged on Thursday with driving while intoxicated and eluding police after allegedly hitting two cars in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday morning before leading authorities on an 15-minute chase that exceeded 100 miles-per-hour. Neer was apprehended after police used spike strips to stop the vehicle, though he is now free on $7,000 bond.

Neer (21-7-1), who holds a 3-4 record inside the octagon, returned to the UFC in early-2008 with a unanimous decision victory over Din Thomas, but dropped his most-recent bout to Nate Diaz at UFC Fight Night 15 in September. “The Dentist” is scheduled to return to action against Mac Danzig in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 17 on February 7th.
