The struggling UFC Lightweight Melvin Guillard kicked off a spate of bad publicity last night when he prematurely tweeted that he would be returning to Greg Jackson's MMA camp in New Mexico.
Now we find out that Guillard is also facing assault charges in New Mexico. Steven Marrocco reports:
According to Bernalillo County (N.M.) court records, Guillard currently faces five charges: two misdemeanor counts of aggravated battery, to which he pled not guilty. Three misdemeanor counts of failure to appear in court were settled. A jury trial on the assault charges is set for April 10, where he faces six months in jail for each count, in addition to fines and probation.
When it rains it pours.
And it continues to get stranger.
