TUF News: Junie Browning Arrested After OD, Booted From The UFC
Hey mama … Junies at it again!
The Ultimate Fighter season 9 “Badboy” might have just pulled the plug on his MMA career. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal,
Junie Browning, 24, was taken to the hospital by two friends after Browning took 16 pills of Klonopin, an anti-anxiety drug, in an attempt to harm himself, police stated in Browning’s arrest report.
After being taken to a room at the hospital, the Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter tried to leave and became angry, pushing a female nurse, punching a male nurse and kicking another male nurse, the report states.
“Do you know who I am? I will kill you and rape your family,” police said he yelled to nurses.
Browning faces three counts of batter for the incident.
UFC President Dana White after hearing the news of the arrest, immediately terminated Junie Brownings UFC Contract.
“Obviously, I’m very disappointed … I haven’t heard anything regarding Junie where he’s acted up or been bad in a long time. You could tell on the show he had issues. I saw (fighting) as an opportunity for the kid to turn his life around and make something of himself. Physically, he’s very gifted. He is good at everything: Standup, he has great ground, he has an unbelievably good chin.
He was given an amazing opportunity, but he has some serious issues that are beyond me and what I can do. I’m there for guys and I realize nobody is perfect and guys are going to get into trouble. When that happens, I want to try to help and do something for them. But he needs more help than I can give him. I did what I could for him.” [Yahoo]
