The alleged organizers of a backyard MMA event have been arrested on charges of criminal nuisance.
According to WENY News the Chemung County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men in connection with a backyard MMA event that occurred over at a residence in Soutport, NY over the weekend. That event ended when an unknown suspect fired a semiautomatic handgun, forcing attendees to flee.
The men arrested, Jesse Keller, 42, and Corey Keller, 32, are alleged to have hosted that unsanctioned MMA event. Both men have been charged with second-degree Criminal Nuisance for “knowingly advancing a criminal combative sport without proper licensing.”
