Former UFC fighter, Edwin Dewees Charged With Two Counts of Child Abuse

Former UFC fighter, Edwin Dewees was arrested last Thursday on two counts of child abuse after the police came across his twin two year old sons walking alone by the side of a road in Arizona.

The Daily Courier has the details:

At 2:20 p.m., a person told an officer about two small children walking alone near Road 1 North and Cactus Wren. The officer immediately found two 2-year-old boys, one wearing just a T-shirt, walking barefoot down Road 1 North, said Cmdr. Mark Garcia of the Chino Valley Police Department. For nearly two hours, officers tried to find the children’s home and their caretaker, but could not, Garcia said.

Dewees’ story is that he put his children down for a mid-afternoon nap only to find they were missing when he went to wake him after his wife returned home. He was placed into custody at the Yavapai County Jail and his children were placed into child protective services pending investigation.
