UFC Alistair Overeem Accused of Misdemeanor Battery of a Woman
From what I can gather, this wasn’t a beat down or anything.
It seems like Overeem who had just retired Brock Lesnar, either pushed or had some sort of contact with a female fan and she called the police.
TMZ has more details.
According to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office … Overeem is accused of “pushing/shoving” a woman in the face at the Wynn Hotel in Vegas at around 3:00 AM on January 2 … just a few nights after he defeated Lesnar at the MGM Grand.
Law enforcement sources tell us the alleged victim is 5’4″ and 128 pounds. Overeem is listed at 6’5″, 260 lbs.
Overeem was not arrested — but was issued a citation and has been ordered to appear in front of a judge in February.
The fact that he wasn’t arrested means that it couldn’t have been that bad, but under no circumstances should you put your hands on a woman, unless your life is in danger and since I doubt this lady had a weapon, he should have kept his hands to himself.
