Well, the police are after him, to the extent that they're pulling strings from state to state to get a hold of the guy. That suggests it's more than just a Facebook conversation that they're going on.
But at this point, the key word is ALLEGEDLY.
I would however argue that the police don't usually pull this kind of shit unless they feel they have a good reason to do so.
And people say 'oh it's a conspiracy to make sure he doesn't earn any income' damn right. If someone got beaten half to death and you found out the guy who did it is appearing on national TV and making tens of thousands of dollars while the victim is laid up recovering you'd probably be doing what you can to make sure that doesn't happen.
I like Jeremy Stephens as a fighter, he's one of these guys at a smaller weight class who still comes to finish guys and generally puts on exciting fights.
If it was a simple bar fight, I wouldn't even think any thing of it. I personally think if you go out in public and go one on one with another guy and lose, you tuck your tail between your legs and accept the defeat.
But the second you two on one someone, that's not a fight, that's a beating and it's basically the most cowardly thing a man can do imo.
I would suspect a camera phone video exists of this incident. Every fight I've seen in the last 5 years had about 20 wallflowers standing around like idiots filming it when they could be breaking it up.
I didnt say the police was going by a facebook conversation. OBVIOUSLY the police has more information and has an idea of what took place.
I am saying that WE dont have any info and the only reported information on it came from a facebook conversation that made its way to the forums.
And the guy didnt handle the situation. When you dont show up for court on something like an assault charge then its pretty common to put a warrant out. Not showing up for court is one of the dumbest things one can do. This stuff will not just "Go away" on its own.
And i read somewhere that this is a year old charge??? So i imagine he has been avoiding the whole situation for quiet a while. Would not be surprised if they sent him a letter giving him consequences for missing the court date and then he just ignored that too. Now a year later its completely escalated.
Hell i had a 80$ ticket that i didnt take care off and a day later after my final payment date it ended up turning into 400$+ ticket. Safe to say im never letting anything having to do with the law to be put on the back burner again.
