Josh Neer Arrested

Source ~ mmaweekly.com

Quote:
Josh Neer – a veteran of the Ultimate Fighting Championship and International Fight League – was arrested early Thursday morning by Des Moines, Iowa, police, according to the Des Moines Register. Polk County (Iowa) records show he was charged with a second-offense operating while intoxicated charge and eluding while more than 25 miles-per-hour in excess of the speeding limit.

A Polk County officer later confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Neer was released on bond sometime around 9 or 10 a.m. Thursday morning and would face a future court date. Records indicate that his bond was set at $2,000 for the operating while intoxicated charge and $5,000 for the charge of eluding.

The officer on duty did not have details of the incident immediately available, but a report by the Des Moines Register indicated that Neer was allegedly involved in a three-car collision at a stoplight before attempting to elude police and leading them on a high-speed chase.

Neer apparently hit a car from behind at a red stoplight. That car then rear-ended a police car that was stopped for the light. Reportedly driving a black Audi Quattro, Neer then allegedly pulled out, crossing oncoming traffic and leading police on a chase.

The report goes on to say that police attempted to stop the Audi by hitting the back quarter panel of the car with a squad car. The Audi spun around, but the driver regained control. The chase eventually wound up on Interstate 80, reportedly reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph in a 65 mph speed zone.

The chase finally ended at mile marker 137, where police arrested Neer.

Sporting a professional MMA record of 24-7-1, Neer last saw action at UFC Fight Night 15 in Omaha, Neb., where he lost a split decision to Ultimate Fighter season five winner Nate Diaz. Neer and Diaz were awarded the UFC Fight Night 15 "Fight of the Night" award, which included a $30,000 bonus to each fighter.

Neer is scheduled to face Mac Danzig at UFC Fight Night 17 at the USF Sun Dome on Feb. 7 in Tampa, Fla.

No statement was forthcoming from UFC officials at the time of publication.

Wow this is messed up. Well hopefully this works it self out and if not hopefully they replace him with Jim Miller.

Miller vs Danzig would be fun.

Is the UFC going to have to do what like the NBA does with it's rookie transition program and deal with these intoxication problems?

Does Dana have to explain to his roster the rules of the road and what police lights mean?

I like to see the bright side of things

Also the LW division is so stacked it's not hard to come up with a bunch of great match ups.

Hey Toxic why doesn't he explain that when you run from the cops chances are you aren't going to get away.
