Jardine in trouble?

Anyone heard more about this?
Jardine pushed some Texas official aftr the loss at Sharkfights. He is now suspended but i dunno for how long.
I read this on a swedish mma news-sites.
There is an interview with his manager John Madrid.
Ill paste it as it is from that site because the quotes are not translated.

What happened, when Keith got through the crowd area, he was stopped and somebody was pulling on his shirt, out of reaction Keith pushed the guy to get him off and it happened to be (a Texas official). Sounds simple enough, but the problem really started just prior to that when there was no escort from the backstage area out to the cage.

There were no commission people or any security or anything to escort Keith out to the cage, and the TV guys are saying we gotta go. The crowd was really tight knit walking out, people reaching over the barriers grabbing at him and wanting to touch him. He’s standing there … he’s being grabbed, he turns around in instinct and pushes the guy back, thinking its an over aggressive fan, but it happens to be (a Texas official).

He’s very apologetic to that. (But) the only part that the commission saw was Keith pushing the commission guy.

They would have none of it. They suspended Jardine on fight night, telling Madrid that it was indefinite until a hearing could be held
