Charges Dropped Against Chad Mendes Over Alleged Bar Brawl Back in July

UFC featherweight, Chad Mendes has been cleared of charges stemming from an alleged bar fight after a court ruling on Monday cleared him of all wrongdoing, enabling him to continue his mixed martial arts career.

“Money’s” manager, Jeff Meyer, speaking via a press release, said:

“I have said from the beginning that the ridiculous allegations published by the media were either false or incredibly sensationalized. Today’s outcome proves it.”

The incident took place on July 29th at the Lacey Inn Bar. Police alleged that the 27-year-old sucker-punched a patron and then evaded police, but was recognized and identified by other patrons. Mendes faced up to six months in county jail and a $2,000 fine if convicted.
