Just two months out from his co-main event match against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 27, which takes place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind., on Aug. 28, 2013, Donald Cerrone is apparently mixing it up outside the Octagon.

CagePotato.com reports that "Cowboy" has been charged with third-degree assault in Grand County, Colo., in an apparent "boat rage" incident that took place on Lake Granby in late June. It seems like it was a mutual exchange, with the other individual slapped with with reckless operation of a boat and reckless endangerment.

Check out the official statement from local authorities:

"Donald A. Cerrone, 30 years of age, has been charged with Third Degree Assault by a summons to court, and it is a Class One Misdemeanor. There is no warrant for him at this time. Mr. Cerrone and another person, Jeffrey S. Aley, were involved in a boating rage incident (similar to road rage but by use of boats) on Lake Granby. The incident escalated to the point where Mr Cerrone assaulted Mr. Aley. Mr. Aley was also charged with Reckless Operation of a boat and Reckless Endangerment, a Class Three Misdemeanor. The case is still ongoing, and has not been concluded in court."

If the other person was immediately charged, sounds like they were I'm the wrong until Cowboy decided to whip that ass.

Thing is, when you're boating, you gotta pull up next to somebody and have them stop and let you on their boat to whip their ass.

So in for the story. Why do you let a real pissed off Cerrone on your boat? Phone Post 3.0

MRXC - That's the wrong guy to have random beef with. Street fighting a kick boxer is not a recommendation I would make if you value your teeth.

Third degree assault is a Class 1 misdemeanor, and the only assault charge that is not a felony. Third degree assault does not require intent, but rather that a person knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another person or, with criminal negligence, causes bodily injury to another person by means of a deadly weapon. Third degree assault is an extraordinary risk crime that is subject to the modified sentencing range.

 
Third degree assault is commonly charged in situations involving minor physical altercations that do not involve apparent injury but do involve some degree of physical pain.  Third degree assault is often charged in situations alleged to involve domestic violence, for example when a wife says that her husband hit or pushed her, or vice versa, and it hurt.

3rd degree? Wow, that's harsh. What happened, Cerrone stepped on his pinky toe?

Or, more realistically, the "victim" was a drunk hick talking shit and Cowboy slapped the Old Milwaukee out of his hand.

This situation with Cerrone is bad publicity, but the day Ronda Rousey gets charged with assault during a bout of blimp rage is the day the UFC throws in the towel.
