A former M-1 Global fighter has been arrested and charged after assaulting two police officers and stealing service weapons during a traffic stop.
According to reports, heavyweight fighter Mikhail Gazaev was among the group of people who attacked DPS officers in North Ossetia after his car was stopped by traffic police in the Ardon district of North Ossetia. The officers, who claimed the car was swerving off the road, asked to see his licence and registration. The fighter allegedly refused so the officers demanded he step out of the car. A scuffle ensued and one of the police officers was knocked unconscious while the other had his service weapon taken from him. Gazaev and his companions fled the scene thereafter. According to the injured officers, he was also drunk at the time.
