Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Victor Ortiz is a professional boxer and an actor.  Ortiz was the WBC Welterweight Champion in 2011 and was consistently rated in the top three fighters at his weight for much of his career.  Ortiz acted in The Expendables and in Southpaw.  He also appeared on Dancing With the Stars.  Ortiz grew up in Kansas to Mexican parents.  For a time, Ortiz was raised by his single parent Father who suffered from alcoholism.  Eventually, Ortiz and his five brothers and sisters entered into the care of Kansas child protective services.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Before his father left, Ortiz took up boxing and showed great promise.  Ortiz was noticed by Ron Lyle at a Salvation Army Community Center.  Lyle mentored Ortiz into Junior Olympics where he was undefeated.  Lyle was then noticed by Roberto Garcia who began training Ortiz.  At 17 years of age, Ortiz entered the United States Olympic boxing trials but was eliminated in the semifinals.  In 2004, Ortiz entered the professional boxing circuit.  During his career, Ortiz fought many great boxers including Floyd Mayweather.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer:  In 2016 Ortiz was arrested for DUI in Ventura County, California.  He breath test registered 0.21 grams per 210 Liters of breath.  That breath alcohol content qualified Ortiz for the super DUI designation which carries greater penalties than a standard first DUI.  The DUI may not be Ortiz’s worst legal problem since he was on probation for a 2015 assault and battery charge at the Kenny Chesney concert held at the Rose Bowl.  Ortiz should be worried about the “comeback” time from the 2015 charge.
