"FREE Lil Heathen" shirts for sale to help go towards proving Jeremy's innocence.

Four days after Jeremy Stephens was arrested on the day he was supposed to fight at UFC on FX 5, the UFC lightweight is still in jail.

Stephens, who is currently being held at the Hennepin County Jail in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will be facing extradition to Iowa for an assault charge. According to the county's online records, he had his bail set at $100,000.

The arrest stems from a 2011 incident in Polk County, Iowa.

Stephens will face a judge on Tuesday, at 1:30 pm CT.

Stephens management recently released a statement about the matter...

In response to the recent arrest and allegations regarding Jeremy Stephens we would like to take this opportunity to reach out to his supporters and clarify some of the information that has been circulating in the media.

In 2011, Jeremy was attending a homecoming party in Des Moines, Iowa. A person in attendance became intoxicated and disorderly, and was asked to leave by the owner of the establishment. The intoxicated individual subsequently became involved in a physical altercation with another person at the event. We have learned that, as the featured guest at the party, Jeremy’s name came up during the police investigation of the assault.

Prior to being detained the morning of October 5, 2012, in Minneapolis, Jeremy had never been arrested in connection with the assault, contacted about any possible charge and or notified about any outstanding warrant by mail or any other means. Jeremy has lived at the same residence in San Diego and has maintained the same phone number for the past year or more. Jeremy also uses social media to provide updates on his training, and to thank fans, supporters, sponsors, and the UFC. In short, Jeremy is not a hard guy to find, which can be seen at www.LilHeathenMMA.com.

At this time, we do not know why Polk County (Iowa) authorities waited to have a warrant served on Jeremy until the morning of his fight. He arrived in Minnesota four days earlier, stayed at the hotel with other fighters for the event, and attended the public weigh-in on Thursday afternoon. Because he was arrested so close to the time of the fight, arrangements for his release could not be made in time for him to compete despite the diligent efforts of the UFC. Minnesota state officials were great to deal with, but Polk County kept changing the deal making it impossible to get Jeremy released.

It will take some time for this unfortunate situation to be resolved. We ask that everyone be patient and wait for the truth to come out. We also would like to thank Jeremy’s fans who are standing by him during this tough time and especially Dana White and the staff at UFC for their incredible display of support for Jeremy throughout the ordeal.

There is nothing to hide, so we will keep everyone updated as things progress. To be clear, JEREMY WAS NOT INVOLVED IN THIS ASSAULT AT ALL!

When you're a professional fighter your hands, knees, etc. are considered deadly weapons. So if Stephens messed some dude up, and it looks like he did, its MUCH more serious than if you or I just slapped some dude in the face.

They want to make sure that he doesn't skip town again.  If somebody puts up the money to bail him out then he has to show up to court for that person to get reimbursed.

Did he even actually assault someone?
I haven't read that yet, just that he was arrested in connection to an assault that took place.

The fact that they waited until the morning of the fight suggests that it is a personal beef. $100k bail supports that theory as well.

I bet lil heathen f$cked the police Chief's wife or something. Phone Post

"There were two charges," White said. "One was $1,000 bail. The other was $20,000. That's where we started. Where we ended was f------ insane. I could have gotten (Charles) Manson out for what they wanted me to pay for him.

I was hanging out down at Alliance yesterday for a completely different reason, but Eric Delfierro gave me a few minutes on camera and weighed in on Jeremy like a boss...

Thanks for the video DojoJay. I would say that given his response of not wanting to comment on the situation, Jeremy fucked up and has to deal with it.

^^^ The details of Jeremy's original arrest are still a thing of rumours, flying around the internet... I think as a head coach, staying away from those kinds of details, especially with litigation pending, was the rational play... We're going to be doing a piece on guys like Eric and what's it's like for them, presiding over a facility full of alpha dogs, and what they do to help keep some of them on the chain...

Appreciate the input, I really do... I try to use social media to shape productions more around what people want, and not so much around what I "think" will be appealing... People know what they want, ya just have to listen.
