MMA fighter charged with murder for drunken fight


BREAKING: Mixed martial arts fighter charged with murder

A mixed martial arts fighter from Gillette, Wyoming has been charged with second-degree murder in the beating death of a former University of Nevada, Las Vegas football player.

Prosecutors formally charged 25-year-old Jason Sindelar on Thursday in Las Vegas.

Sindelar was arrested in June in the death of 26-year-old DeMario Reynolds. Prosecutors waited for a toxicology report before filing formal charges.

Police have said Sindelar was fighting with his girlfriend at the pyramid-shaped Luxor hotel-casino on the Las Vegas strip in June. Witnesses told police Reynolds tried to break it up.

Sindelar then allegedly attacked Reynolds. Police have said the two men were friends.

According to the arrest report, Reynolds told Sindelar he didn’t want to fight him and tried to calm him down but Sindelar wouldn’t listen and continued to fight. Police have said Sindelar was drunk.

Sindelar began fighting competitively in mixed martial arts in 2007. While in Gillette, he trained at the Martial Arts Center of Gillette and was a member of a three-man fighting team called “The Wrecking Crew.”

Sindelar attended Campbell County High School and moved to Las Vegas about two years ago, said Nick Carter, a Gillette attorney who has represented Sindelar in the past.

Sounds like a typical Vegas piece of shit loser. (I live in Vegas, btw, I just acknowledge that 99.999% of the dudes here from ages 21-40 are piece of shit losers).

This story is really depressing. Getting drunk, yelling at your girlfriend and then beating your friend to death is a pretty shitty night and an epic fail imo.
