When Chris moved to Hawaii he was in the process of completing classes for his probation on an old DUI in Portland Oregon. We worked hard to get his probation transferred to Hawaii but were unsuccessful.
When he got the call to fight Bisping on June 7th in London he knew what he had to do.
He immediately flew to Oregon and turned himself in on the probation violation. The warrant was a “no bail” warrant so he will have to sit in jail for 8-10 days before he gets a hearing. The moment he appeared before the judge after turning himself in the warrant was revoked and he is able to get his VISA for London.
Now I’m not one to pat anyone on the back regarding a DUI charge, but it’s still pretty ballsy that Leben agreed to the UK fight knowing he’d have to deal with that warrant first. Of course, I do wonder if he realized he’d end up in jail for a week over it, or was that something of a surprise?
