UFC’s Green faces DUI manslaughter charges


UFC fighter Desmond Green is facing four DUI manslaughter charges for his alleged role in a five-vehicle crash last August that killed two people.

According to Broward County Jail records, Green, 29, was arrested Tuesday. Along with the manslaughter charges, the Broward County Court lists 19 total charges, including DUI causing serious bodily injury (four counts), DUI causing property damage (five counts), operating with a suspended license, and possession of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

His total bond was set at $194,000, according to the jail records.

In August, Alvaro Feola, a spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol, told reporters that Green lost control of his Dodge Durango just before 6:15 a.m. on Interstate 75 in Davie, Florida. The SUV veered into the path of a tractor-trailer, causing a chain-reaction crash with three other vehicles.

Two people — Emelina Morfa, 67, and Emma Suarez Hernandez, 76 — were killed. Two others were seriously hurt. Green suffered minor injuries.

Green (21-7) has fought three times since the crash, winning his last two bouts.
