A felony warrant related to an April incident led to the arrest. He was given a $150,000 bond and freed. The actor reportedly hit his mother, Christina Fulton, during a mental health crisis a few weeks prior, according to The Sun.

Following a verbal argument, Weston got into a physical altercation with his mother, which prompted the LAPD to go looking for him. It is said that just before her son turned against her, Fulton was attempting to comfort him during a sad period. Before the police could come, the mixed martial artist escaped his mother's home.

In a May 2018 People interview, Christina Fulton discussed the alleged attack and said that she and her son did not dispute the incident. She added that Weston's issues with his mental health were probably the reason it happened. Fulton said that she had received calls that day from several of Weston's "best friends," alerting her that he was in a crisis.
