Will Chope discharged from the Airforce for domestic violence

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...lting-his-wife

Quote:
Will Chope, who faces Diego Brandao on Sunday night's UFC Fight Night Shogun vs. Henderson 2, was kicked out of the Air Force after assaulting his wife and threatening her with a knife in November 2009.

According to Air Force Court of Appeals documents obtained by Bleacher Report, it was not the first instance of Chope, then an Airman, assaulting his wife. In July 2009, Chope was given nonjudicial punishment by his unit commander after repeatedly assaulting his wife upon learning of her infidelity. On October 12, 2009, Chope again assaulted his wife and was then told the next day not to contact his wife by his Master Sergeant:

Quote:
...the appellant was “to have no contact with [AW] directly or indirectly, orally or in writing,” unless he had permission from a supervisor.
On November 12, 2009, Chope was given permission by the same Master Sergeant to speak with his wife by phone in order to settle financial issues involving their daughter.

According to the court record, Chope and his wife got into an argument concerning a credit card during that phone call. He asked his wife to pick him up from Andersen Air Force Base (in Guam) so that he could see his daughter. She reluctantly did so, but during the drive, they resumed the argument about the credit card. Chope told his wife that if she didn't give him the credit card, he was going to hurt her:

Quote:
When AW refused, the appellant told her that he had nothing to lose and that he was going back to Florida. He then went to the kitchen, retrieved a paring knife, and threatened AW with it. He grabbed her, slammed her head onto the floor, and hit her on top of her head with both the knife handle and his hand. When AW screamed for help, the appellant took her onto the ground, and used a “pillow or blanket” to silence her screams.
His wife continued refusing to give him the credit card. The court document states that Chope kicked his wife in the leg when she tried to escape, but she continued to refuse to give him the credit card.

Chope was given a sentence of five months confinement and a bad conduct discharge.

He appealed the sentence, claiming that it was too severe because he had the potential for rehabilitation. He also told the appeals court that he and his wife were divorced and that the conduct would not be repeated.

On August 15, 2011, the appeals court denied Chope's request:

After careful consideration of the entire record and his appellate submissions, we are not persuaded by the appellant’s arguments. The appellant assaulted his wife on multiple occasions and disobeyed an order given to prevent future assaults. Contrary to the appellant’s assertions, his divorce from AW does not excuse his prior misconduct or prevent future misconduct from occurring.

Bleacher Report has reached out to the UFC for official comment, and we'll update this story with more information as we get it.
Women always buying shoes and shit, pretty amazing to find a guy who's a bigger dick than Diego Brandao but looks like we've got one.

The UFC just needs to cut ties with Florida.

I hope the UFC lets him fight and Diego kicks the living shit out of him and then the UFC fires him.

Will Chope sounds like a serious piece of shit for hitting his wife and smothering her screams with a pillow.

His wife is also a crap human being for cheating especially in a marriage with kids. Although cheating certainly does not excuse that guys behavior and she did not deserve that.

I guess what i am trying to say is

F**k Will Chope. Choke on a dick.

The guy beat her with the hilt of a knife, reread it he went to the kitchen grabbed threw her down put a pillow over her head and beat her with the knife.

How that is not assault with a deadly weapon or attempted murder is beyond me.

But y'know Florida

This is what the UFC should be looking for not twitter and instagram jokes from fighters when they were children.

According to the UFC PR team offending people is worse than real crimes

Yeah i know

"used a “pillow or blanket” to silence her screams."

The guy is a piece of shit.

I really do hope the UFC lets him fight and they pay the ref to do the worst late stoppage in MMA. And if its a sub and the guy is tapping the ref should position himself in a manner where he wouldnt see the tap.

And if he pulls off the win the UFC should fire him anyway.
