Alistair Overeem Avoids Being Jailed For Battery Case

We reported last January that Alistair Overeem had been charged with misdemeanor battery stemming for a New Year’s Eve Party In Las Vegas.

He has now gone to court and answered for the charges.

The Las Vegas Review Journal Got The Scoop:



Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight Alistair Overeem was sentenced to 50 hours of community service and to undergo anger-management counseling as the result of a battery charge stemming from an incident at a Las Vegas nightclub on New Year’s weekend.

Overeem, 31, who will fight Junior dos Santos for the organization’s heavyweight title at UFC 146 at the MGM Garden on May 26, also received a suspended 90-day jail sentence. If the conditions of his community service and counseling are met, the matter will be dismissed. Overeem is to appear in court on Sept. 26.

Overeem, who will take part in a news conference at the MGM later today to promote the UFC 146 card, was not in court. He was represented by Las Vegas attorney David Chesnoff. Overeem waived his right to a trial.

Overeem was accused of shoving a woman in the early morning hours of Jan. 2 at Wynn Resort, causing her to “stagger back,” according to a citation issued by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

  4. Big says:

    Wtf. If dude hit her he could have killed her what bs. I am sure it was a 50/50 thing this is nonsence. What a waste of court time. Hope she is happy with her 15 minutes of fame

  5. Scotty says:

    The chick was prolly trying to jump all over him and he shoved her away like a piece of trash.. she got all pissed off cause he wanted nothing to with her and she try to get something out of it but didnt work!

  6. Andri says:

    50 days of community service for a shove?

    Ok if he caused some injury i would get it but.. He wouldn’t even have been charged for something like that if he didn’t have money.. thats just retarded.

  7. Chartmonster says:

    Reem should’ve kneed that bitch in da face, so she wouldn’t remember shit then..REEMMONSTER FTW!

  8. jbeamazing says:

    at least he didn’t get kobe’d

  9. jbeamazing says:

    i trademarked overoid

  10. actual Jenks! says:

    shiiiiit .i would hate to be cell mates with alistair.. hell even in the same area as him. thats one bad mofo.

    • Ste says:

      Nahh listening to his interviews and videos etc he always seems like a laid back kind of guy, like a big friendly giant lol… Looks scary untill you get to know him.

      Think i would want him as a cell mate then no one would mess with you lol.

      The police should have just laughed at her when she told them…

      And yea, usa’s justice system seems crap… push someone that was most likely anoying you which causes them to stagger or probably just step back and thats it your acused of battering someone and can be jailed…. Shoot someone dead who is unarmed and say it was self defense and your free to go and live your life with no charges…..

  11. James says:

    This girl is probably gonna run off to fuck Mel Gibson now…

  12. James says:

    Not much more can really be said about this thread except that Mel has produced some of the finest unintentional comedy the world has seen. Also Overeem obviously didn’t really assault that girl.

  13. Turkeykneck fun chav says:

    they make examples out of mma fighters when someone claims something physical happened.
    the fact that celebs have bodygaurds around them and people get pushed and shoved all the time without the celebs getting sued for their bodygaurds “shoving” them.
    fucking stinks

  14. Xaninho says:

    So she wouldn’t get out of his face, he gives her a little shove that staggers the bitch, and HE has to answer for it? If I were him I’d have filed a countercharge of attempted battery and claim self defense.
