UFC flyweight Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall was arrested for outstanding warrants in Laguna Beach, California this past Tuesday. McCall’s vehicle was identified by a Laguna Beach detective in an unmarked car working a separate case and arrested McCall without incident. Sources have shown a conflicting report of the story first posted by Laguna’s “Stu News Laguna” news site.
According to the Laguna site:
“Ian Gregory McCall, 28, Irvine was arrested without incident for two Harbor Court warrants for possession of narcotic paraphernalia, possession of prescription meds without a valid prescription, and driving on a suspended license. The warrants had a total bail of $16,500.”
MMAWeekly spoke to McCall’s manager, Jason House, gave a different account of the events this past Tuesday. MMAWeekly reports:
“According to House, McCall was driving home on Tuesday when an unmarked police car recognized his vehicle from past occurrences and pulled him over. The police ran McCall’s plates and they found an outstanding warrant in his name.
The warrant stemmed from a ticket issued in June for McCall driving under a suspended license. McCall apparently paid the fines, but did not make a scheduled court appearance due to a miscommunication and a warrant was issued.
Because McCall was on parole from previous charges and a warrant was issued in his name, the UFC flyweight must spend a mandatory time of 30 days in jail with his release date currently scheduled for Sept 13. McCall’s vehicle, home and other areas were searched as part of protocol from his previous arrests, but his manager says he’s only been charged with driving under a suspended license.”
These comments are supported by the fact that the only charge made public has been the driving on a suspended license. McCall is free on bail at this time but now facing jail time. The UFC has not issued a statement regarding McCall’s arrest at this time but will likely do so over the weekend. Look for more details to emerge in the coming days.
