UFC: Cowboy Charged with Assault!


It seems Donald Cerrone started off his 4th of July a bit early.

On June 29, 2013, Cowboy was allegedly involved in a “boat rage” incident turned violent. Cage Potato initially relayed the following statement, written by the Grand County Colorado Sheriff’s Department:

“Donald A. Cerrone, 30 years of age, has been charged with Third Degree Assault by a summons to court, and it is a Class One Misdemeanor. There is no warrant for him at this time. Mr. Cerrone and another person, Jeffrey S. Aley, were involved in a boating rage incident (similar to road rage but by use of boats) on Lake Granby. The incident escalated to the point where Mr Cerrone assaulted Mr. Aley. Mr. Aley was also charged with Reckless Operation of a boat and Reckless Endangerment, a Class Three Misdemeanor. The case is still ongoing, and has not been concluded in court.”

A misdemeanor shouldn’t be too big of a problem for him, but Cerrone is currently booked to face #10 ranked Rafael dos Anjos one week from today at UFC Fight Night 27. We hope he is able to address these legal issues as soon as possible.
