The UFC has released lightweight Junie Browning after the controversial Ultimate Fighter 8 contestant was arrested on Tuesday in Las Vegas, according to Yahoo Sports.
Browning was arrested for allegedly assaulting three nurses at a local hospital, where he was being treated for an overdose “in an attempt to harm himself,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:
After being taken to a room at the hospital, the Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter tried to leave and became angry, pushing a female nurse, punching a male nurse and kicking another male nurse, the report states.
“Do you know who I am? I will kill you and rape your family,” police said he yelled to nurses.
He was booked at the Henderson Detention Center, where he was released today.
Browning faces three counts of battery on a health care provider, according to his arrest report.
