Oscar De La Hoya Arrested on DUI Charge

Oscar De La Hoya was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of drunk driving after he was stopped for speeding in Pasadena, officials said.

De La Hoya, 43, was pulled over about 2 a.m. on Del Mar Boulevard west of Saint John Avenue, the California Highway Patrol reported. The driver was asked to leave the vehicle and was informed of the reason for the arrest. A series of field sobriety tests were administered, which he failed, so he was arrested and later released from jail. The driver agreed to the tests and failed to perform them as shown and demonstrated.

De La Hoya retired from boxing in 2009 following his December 2008 defeat to Manny Pacquiao, as he left the ring with a 39-6 overall record.

Oscar has struggled with substance abuse for years - and has been to rehab for alcohol and drug issues in the past.

He will debut the clubs at the PGA Tour's upcoming Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines from 26th to 29th January. "But if I'm going the way I'm going, then I don't even know if I'll make it to 40". "I am looking forward to it".

Golden Boy Promotions declined to comment to The Times.

In 2011, De La Hoya was absent from Bernard Hopkins' historic light heavyweight championship victory against Jean Pascal in Montreal because he went to rehab days before the bout.

In an illustrious career, the former Olympian was named as the best fighter in the world on two occasions and was the first man ever to hold world titles at six different weight classes.
