MMA Fighter Beat Down by Graffiti Charges

07.31.09 Will Sherman


Mixed martial arts fighter The Snowman has pled guilty to malicious mischief charges for spray-painting an anarchist symbol on the Washington state Capitol last November. The “avowed anarchist,” also known as Jeff Monson, was only caught and charged after ESPN published a photo of him in action. In response to similar crimes at a local military recruitment center, Monson entered an Alford plea, not admitting guilt, only that there was enough evidence to convict him. Prosecutors are apparently seeking a 90-day jail sentence and $21,894 fine to cover cleanup costs. |The News Tribune|
