    UFC star Nate Diaz is contemplating legal action after the Miami Herald falsely reported that he had been arrested in a domestic violence case and that he had then attacked police officers in a Miami police station.

    The false story appeared on the Herald’s website on Wednesday morning. The story cited a ‘law enforcement source’ when naming Nate Diaz as the person that had been arrested. After the story appeared Zach Rosenfield, a spokesperson for Diaz, contacted the outlet to say that Diaz has been in California and that he was not involved in any altercation.

    The Herald then updated their story and issued the following…

    Miami Herald definitely should be held accountable for running with a false story. They owe Nate a retraction and and apology at the minimum and a lawsuit would get them to that point.

    since he's a public figure, he has to be able to demonstrate actual financial loss in order to get paid.
    threatening a lawsuit is probably enough to get an apology and 'mea culpa' on page six of the sports section.
