parker2004 - FrontRowBrian ?@FrontRowBrian

This is info given to me by a twitter follower of mine on December 1, 2011 regarding an incident involving Jeremy Stephens. It's long.
-
Stephens was at a bar called Fat Tony's in Des Moines w/his cousin Dustin, fighter Victor Moreno, Shane (Jeremy's childhood friend)+his wife
-
Shane becomes angry. Someone spilled drinks on credit card. He gets loud, angry. His wife puts her arm on his shoulder. He pushes it away
-
Jeremy Stephens, intoxicated, sees this as Shane getting physical w/ a woman. JS gets in Shane's face. Threatens him. Security comes over.
-
Shane is being escorted out of the bar. Dustin (Jeremy's cousin) says to bouncer that's my friend. He convinces him to let him stay...
-
So Shane and Dustin return to the area where Jeremy Stephens is. Jeremy confronts him and punches Shane 10 times. Also kicked on ground
-
Dustin, also heavily intoxicated, joins in on beating of Shane. Shane's wife, pregnant at the time, convinces them to stop the beating
-
Shane's wife brings him outside bar. Puts him in a car. Jeremy Stephens sees him in car,punches hole thru window, drags him out.More beating
-
Stephens bails when cops show up. Shane is taken by ambulance to hospital. He spends 3 days in ICU. Here's the real interesting part...
-
Dustin is arrested and charged with the assault. Stephens allegedly offers to pay for Dustin's legal bills for him to take the fall.
-
Stephens gets out of dodge. Has other friend drive him to Omaha to get back to San Diego. Avoid questioning. Scheduled 2 b there a wk longer
-
Again, this was information given to me. Everything is alleged. The source had incredible details so that's story as told to me.

 

wow IF that's true that's fucked up.. especially the window part.. he beat that guy into a living death

"They don't like this kid in Iowa"


Well, if the story is true, no wonder they don't like him.

If that story is true he doesn't need to fight again any time soon.

Here's more info. on the Stephens situation, according to Dana in the post-presser scrum:

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1360819-ufc-on-fx-5-dana-white-tells-jeremy-stephens-side-of-the-story-on-arrest

 

UFC on FX 5: Dana White Tells "Jeremy Stephens' Side of the Story" on Arrest

 

 

UFC on FX 5 featured the main event between heavyweights Antonio "Big Foot" Silva and Travis Browne, but it was a fight that didn't happen that has taken over much of the story in Minneapolis.
 
Just hours before he was set to step into the Octagon against Yves Edwards, UFC lightweight Jeremy Stephens was arrested by local police on Friday morning on out-of-state charges stemming from an arrest in 2011. 
 
Despite UFC President Dana White tweeting throughout the day that the fight was still on, when Stephens was unable to be bailed out of jail, the UFC was forced to cancel the bout.
 
White spoke briefly about the situation in the post-fight press conference and within an online message board, but more details surfaced following the press conference in the post-fight media scrum.
 
"Jeremy Stephens' side of the story is that he never hit this guy. It was one of his friends and they were all together," White told a group of reporters including Bleacher Report MMA. "The guys were accusing him of doing it because they're trying to get money out of him. Because he's a UFC guy, they think they can make money off of him or whatever. That's his side of the story."
 
Stephens has competed in the UFC since 2007 when he was just 21 years old. Now 26, Stephens and White have gotten to know one another, which leads White to believe his guy.
 
"I like Jeremy Stephens. He's a good kid, I've known him for years and if that's what he tells me, I take grown men for their word," White said. "These guys are in business with me and if that's what he tells me the story is, am I going to call him a liar?"
 
Unable to speak to Stephens throughout the day, White was forced to go through Stephens' corner as a means of communication. 
 
"[Jeremy's] manager talked to him in the couple calls he got to make," White said. "I tried to leave him a note to say, 'Be ready. You're fighting tonight.' "Thank [God] that law enforcement people love the UFC because everywhere I go, the police are so cool to us and treat us so well. When I was down at the place today, they couldn't have been any nicer. I mean, there's certain things they can't do, but the Sheriff's department here in town could not have been nicer to us."
 
Dana wouldn't divulge the final number that the bail was set at, but did say that he was ready to pay just about any number, fully expecting that Stephens would show up for the eventual court date."
 
"I was going to pay the bail...and if he didn't show up in court, I'd send Dog the f^%*ing Bounty Hunter after him."
 
As a fight promoter, White was intent on making the fight happen, if for no other reason than to shove it in the faces of premature reports that the fight was off.
 
"It started off that there were two charges," he said. "One was a $1,000 bail and the other one was $20,000."
 
Things quickly spiraled out of control, however.
 
"Where we ended, it was f*%^in' insane," White said. "I mean, I could've got [Charles] Manson out for what they wanted me to pay for [Jeremy Stephens]."
 
As of now, Stephens is still in jail and no further news has surfaced regarding the situation.
 
"What's going to happen now is that, they have to figure out whether or not he's going to be extradited," White said. "Then they're going to have to come and get him."
 
I've seen situations like this before. If they really don't like this kid, this kid could be in jail here for three months until they extradite him. Then he goes to jail there and they'll have him sit in jail until he has a hearing."
 
Although White and the UFC just found out that the legal issue was still a problem today, White does recall hearing the news when it first was reported. 
 
"Everybody remembers when this came out. It came out last year sometime. [At the time] He said it wasn't him. 'I didn't do it,' " White explained. "And then supposedly, this is what his manager says, is that he has a lawyer down there who said that everything was handled. Then they talked with the lawyer today and the lawyer said, 'Yeah, I just put all the paperwork in and all that sh*^." And I'm like, 'He's full of sh*^! This guy's full of sh*^ because I'm dealing with this thing right now and he hasn't done anything!"
 
According to White, not only did he not know about the situation, but Stephens himself swears that he did not know about the warrant for his arrest.
 
"As far as [Jeremy] tells me, he absolutely did not know that he [had a warrant out for his arrest]," White said. "And the stupid thing would be, if he did, why would you let it go for over a year when you're on TV?"
 
This confusing situation has only added to the UFC's recent issues which have included injuries and legal problems to many of the promotion's top stars. For now, Stephens remains in police custody and while he will eventually have his day in court, it's looking as though he may be spending some time behind bars before that date, as well.

Dfw always says that he has to deal with some crazy shit every day. Obviously true.

Get Yves a fight soon.

Great night of fights.

i still do not understand that in the legal records, stephens showed up as no bail was set.
and Dana is trying to make bail for him
and he could not talk to him en still he knew stephens wanted/could fight?
maybe he could not get enough water/food/energy in his system to fight last night?
twittering that the fight will happen and is not off, seems to me, not being realistic

Furthermore the UFC never cancelled the fight, but it was tasken off the card and also the betting accencies/bookies took the fight off

Dana seemed mad about the media reporting about the arrest and the fight was off.

Jeremy = "You didn't take care of an outstanding felony warrant for assault and you got arrested after crossing state lines?! Let me try to bail you out and drive you to the arena in time!!"
You know you warrant could had just been issued, and Jeremy had no idea about it right... Phone Post

Have you ever had one issued on you? It's not exactly a secret.

Yes, for an unpaid parking ticket that I no showed because I had no idea I had even gotten one. It didn't come up until I went to the DMV to renew my license, 4 months after it was issued.

I received no letter, no phone call, nada. Of course, it wasn't as serious as assault, but a warrant is a warrant.
Same here, had a moving violation ticket, paid it but license got suspended, no letter or anything, 3 years later, got pulled over and arrested for it, no clue license was suspended Phone Post

If the story is true he should do some prison time.

Either way, thanks for posting, Dana. Phone Post

UH, no they (UFC) don't. The majority of UFC fighters who have been arrested don't even make the news.

Here in San Diego alone, several guys who have fought in the UFC have been arrested and I don't think any made the news or even the UG news. There has been more UFC fighters than players from the Chargers in the county jails here in SD....
