D Wizzle has found out that UFC welterweight fighter, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson was detained and held in a holding cell for about three hours on June 27 due to domestic violence charges by an ex girlfriend of his.
The MMA forums and websites have been reporting that he was arrested on domestic battery charges. Some websites and forums have also stated that he kicked down the woman's door, choked her, and beat her up.
My sources say this is NOT the case at all. I have it on good authority that it was a heated argument by two parties and they both exchanged words and there was no physical violence exchanged at all.
Johnson will have his day in court on July 17 when he goes to a pretrial hearing according to MMAmania.com.
I have also learned that it was not the UFC that bailed out Johnson but instead, it was a close friend of his.
There has been wild speculation about what happened on June 27, and I cannot get into detail about the incident but from what I hear and know, Rumble Johnson is completely innocent of all charges.
Unfortunately for Rumble, he has to learn the hard way that the media and the fans on the Internet can quickly turn on you due to false rumors. Due to the charges and Internet rumors, Rumble's reputation has taken quite a hit.
Just like everyone of us, he is innocent until proven guilty and the facts of this matter will come to light, and I believe Rumble will be cleared and exonerated of all the serious charges and allegations.
