Flyweight McCall arrested in Irvine
UFC flyweight and fan favorite Ian McCall was arrested last week in Irvine, California due to a charge of driving with a suspended license.
StuNewsLaguna.com reported the news on Friday.
The charge was two months old at the time of arrest. He was charged on June 14, and the arrest was a violation of his probation.
According to McCall’s criminal attorney George Vargas, who spoke with MMAjunkie.com regarding the situation, the arrest came after a misunderstanding.
McCall’s license had been suspended due to unpaid traffic and parking tickets, which he paid on June 15. McCall did not show for his court date after paying the $2,600 in fines, thus leading to the situation currently at hand.
Then, last week, on August 14, the fighter was stopped after leaving the gym, and he was arrested due to missing his court appearance and having not completed the 20 days of Cal Trans work he was ordered to complete, which stemmed from his 2008 arrest.
According to MMAjunkie.com, McCall remains incarcerated until a September 13 pre-trial hearing. That information was delivered by the Superior Court of California County of Orange.
McCall last competed in June, headlining the promotion’s “UFC on FX” card for that month. He lost to Demetrious Johnson via unanimous decision, thus being eliminated from the flyweight tournament.
