MMA NEWS – Junie Browning Still On The Run, Needs Medical Attention And American Embassy

“I was in fact the victim in this case, and it is important I am able to tell my side of the story and provide you with pictures and evidence to support it. There was an attempt to end my life and I am begging for help from the U.S. Embassy.

“Sunday night, we arrived at a small bar in Karon with two other females, one of which was friends with the owner. It happened to be the owner of the bar’s birthday, Simon Wilson Menzies. So he was surrounded by a group of 12-15 of his closest friends who had been drinking in celebration previous to our arrival. My girlfriend and I had a few drinks, and seeing we didn’t know anyone, had decided to leave to go home. We had contacted a cab and he was on his way to meet us. He would call when he arrived. A discussion via text message with one of the girls I had arrived with resulted in MJ Castro and Simon Menzies confronting me in the street.

MJ was screaming and swinging her hands in front of my face. I do not know why she was mad. Nothing that I had said involved her or her friends whatsoever. I assumed she was mad that we were leaving the party because we were on our way out to meet our cab. Without any notice I found myself in a physical altercation with Simon in the street.

I could tell from the moment he stepped in front of me, he was looking for a fight. At this point, it just involved me and Simon, my girlfriend standing next to us. In only a few seconds, my girlfriend was thrown across the street and I had been hit from behind in the back of the head by a glass beer bottle. I stood up looking for my attacker and found myself surrounded by a mob of people.

It was no longer a man on man ‘bar brawl’ but a fight for my survival. I was trying to defend myself in the street when at some point I fell back to the ground. They drug me back into the bar where they pummeled me with punches and kicks. It was me against everyone. For a second time I received a mass blow over the head with a thick glass mug that split my head open and made me fall to the floor. I curled up in the fetal position, submissive, and I continued to be kicked and hit. My arms up covering my face I felt a slice to my forearm and another stab to my neck.

[In the hospital] they began to assess my wounds and stitch up the three large gashes on my head. Without any consideration to my safety or the events that had just occurred, they placed both Menzies, accompanied by MJ Castro, and the man who had attacked me with a mug, in the beds right beside me. Needless to say, I became furious and again words were exchanged. As it escalated a second time into a physical fight… Security and Patong Police arrived and restrained all parties. I was taken into the waiting lobby on a stretcher in handcuffs in front of numerous people to finish giving me medical attention.

At no point was I rude or uncooperative with either the medical staff or the police. Taken into consideration the severity of my wounds and my demeanor and my girlfriend’s statement, the police officer removed my handcuffs. We were told by the officer that we should stay the night in the hospital to have my head monitored and would be able to go home with no charges the next morning. It was obvious to him that I was the victim.

My intentions were to file a police report in the morning and deal with this in a civil manner. Hours later, my phone began to ring with numerous reliable sources stating that we were not safe and we needed to leave now! They said that local Thais and mafia had a price on my head and were headed to the hospital and both my girlfriend and my life were at risk. We were told to trust or talk to no one and to just leave. We are aware that the mafia is a real thing and took this very seriously. We panicked and decided that our best option was to escape in the middle of the night and hope we could make it home.

My girlfriend pulled out my IV and jumped a fence to find a taxi to come pick me up. When one arrived, I jumped in and we headed home to pack. Two friends came banging on the door, which we didn’t answer for fear of who it might be. They continued to bang on the windows until we realized who it was. We do not want to mention their names to protect them from being associated with the situation and any harm that may come to them. They said there was no time, that I needed to hide. They even mentioned that if my girlfriend was found, they would kill or harm her in attempt to find me.

To this point I have been unable to seek the medical attention that I desperately need. My vision in my right eye is impaired; I am in severe pain; I am going through fainting and dizzy spells, and have severe head trauma.

All we are asking for is help from people we can trust which brings us here now. We are victims of a viscous assault and attempt on our lives. We are seeking the assistance of the U.S. Embassy and want to clear my name of the wrong-doing I was accused of.”

In an exclusive interview coming out of, Junie Browning details his highly publicized bit of trauma overseas.

The write up says that Browning was able to sneak out of the country but was unwilling to disclose his location and is still running from authorities and the people who possibly want to cause him more harm.

You can’t make this kind of stuff up, it sounds like a real life Thailand Martial Arts Movie Adventure, and if there isn’t already a script out there in the works someone needs to cash in.

I say we contact the US Embassy and help this poor kid out. It is Christmas after all and I am leaning towards believing his statements.

If you feel inclined to assist in his efforts you can contact the Embassy HERE.

  6. TrigenicKin says:

    Yeah right, this sounds like a movie plot.

  7. Brandon says:

    if he survives this, let it be a lesson to all to live a good life. If he had a reputation for being a good person, people would believe this without a doubt. But because he’s the kind ofperson who CAUSES these kinds of situations, nobody is buying his story.

  8. A.James says:

    Never go to Thailand.

  9. Mike Emerson says:

    Junie got himself in this mess. The guy has a real drinking problem and so it seems makes bad choices. Time to grow up, deal with your problems and take some responsibility.

  10. Stevie B says:

    Junie in a drunken bust up, why am I not surprised! However, sounds like a fucked up situation and if his head injuries are as bad as he’s saying he needs help………quick………still goes without saying, he’d a fucking nutter!!!

  11. dyllan says:

    u see those wounds? they are not a fucking movie you inconsiderate prick.

  12. Lex w says:

    I hope he gets back safe

  13. black chicken dick says:

    why wont the embassy help??

  14. Ryan says:

    It’s bad when an american embassy wont help a fellow american thats the problem write politics these days they look out for their self and to hell write the rest of us

  15. Donnybrook says:

    I for one believe him because I’ve been to Thailand and have seen some pretty fucked up shit!, not a place you want to be fucking around and getting into trouble… life is worth nothing over there. Good luck Junie and get home safe!

  16. scoota says:

    I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle, junie is playin the victim too much I think he probably started it, broke a few jaws and then things got hectic….

  17. FunCrush says:

    yeah poor junie (sarcasm) im sure he was just an innocent victimn, he’s not the type of guy to start a fight, especially drunk at a bar… pffft, u cant go to other countries and act like a fool, then cry for help….

  18. Dion says:

    If Junie is not bi-polar than I’m a munky’s uncle. He’s a bully, with no brains. Thai people are great, kind and friendly. Saying that, if you look for trouble you’ll find it. Junie is the classic case of ‘as long as i’m the bully all is fine’. And now the shoes on the other foot, he bitches and complains ‘o poor me’.
    I do feel for his girl friend, hope she wises up and ditches the fool. Junie, you’re a loser, a bully, and you need medication to resemble some form of a decent person.
    Hope the Thai don’t kill your ass, but if anybody needed a touch up, you’re the winner in my book.

  19. Big J says:

    This is terrible, i hope he gets back safely….I don’t wish this upon anyone…

  20. Kinggareth says:

    What was he doing there anyways? Bars anywhere aren’t exactly safe havens. You dont get into fights by saying nothing or walking away.

  21. razor says:

    Haha, don’t fuck around in a foreign country, your shitty stand up ain’t going to hold up against a bottle or knife.

  22. Manuel says:

    Bangkok has him now.

  23. dt says:

    what a fucking douchebag. you walk around acting like an asshole and bad things happen. classic “it wasnt my fault” you reap what you sow dumb ass!!

  24. GRT 3000 says:

    I dunno man, the guy doesn’t deserve to die that’s for sure. But he is 100% prime rib asshole; maybe a good beating (minus the bottles) was what he had coming. Get home safe pal and then start reconsidering your own bullshit.

  25. pete says:

    Yeah right mate, you f**ked up in thailand and now you’re paying the price. America didnt like you now the thais dont either.

  26. Robbie Wiggins says:

    WTF are we suppose to do for him? He needs to go beat on tha embassey gates!!! You need to stay tha fuck away from trouble . What is it besides talking to tha Embassey,do you want us to help you with Junie?

  27. Ed says:

    Don’t understand. How can the embassy help him if he already left the country?

    “We are seeking the assistance of the U.S. Embassy and want to clear my name of the wrong-doing I was accused of.”

    “The write up says that Browning was able to sneak out of the country but was unwilling to disclose his location and is still running from authorities and the people who possibly want to cause him more harm.”

  28. Dick Paradise says:

    pretty sure he tried to fuck a ladyboy, found out she was a dude and ended up causing shit.

    said ladyboy works for a pimp/mafia that didn’t like Junie damaging his merchandise and worked him over with his boys.

    Guess you shouldn’t have acted like such a fag on TV and more people might give a shit.

  29. Surfari says:

    Step up and HELP JUNIE

  30. Giggaplex says:

    anyone wishing him death or to stay over there and rot is a just as bad as him. very easy to judge a person from how they have been portrayed through the media but what makes you think he deserves death? so easy to throw death around but if someone was throwing it at you or your family i bet you would be begging every motherfucker for some kind of help. the dude isnt hitler, obviously a drongo but doesnt deserve death

  31. bill says:

    Good riddance. Honestly let go of the whole I am a UFC fighter thing. You were never that good.

    Goodluck Mafia!

  32. Kinggareth says:

    Hopefully this experience teaches him something.
    You can walk around and be the big fish in a small pond, picking on the smaller fish, but sooner or later you bump into a school of fish that can seriously fuck you up.

  33. Phalen says:

    Is anyone surprised that this dude got attacked? He is a tough MFer for taking all that punishment, but it doesn’t change the fact that his attitude sucks. You add that on top of booze and the fact that foreign locals couldn’t care less about his 15 mins of “reality” fame and you have a recipe for disaster! You can garuntee that someone, somewhere is crying ” Justice is served!”.
    I hope he learns multiple lessons, heals, and lives to fight another day. But in my honest opinion….you got yourself into this mess Junie, you get yourself out.

  34. ozzie says:

    We r all americans n its fukd up dat alot of ppl r just turnin their back on him. Im pretty sure everyone has had a drunk brawl but they tried 2 kill this guy one of our own in a foreign country, this is not 2 b overlooked or ignored!!!!

    • GRT 3000 says:

      no, we are not all Americans. Plenty of everyone in here eh. n-e ways – you can’t go to a foreign country and act an asshole than expect the marines to drop in and Rambo the whole country after you fucked up. I mean I hope he gets home safe, but your suggesting than one of your own can do whatever the hell he wants abroad and that regardless of his actions he should have the whole country behind him? Captain Cook had that same plan; look where that got him.

  35. AJR80 says:

    I could see a spell in the Bangkok Hilton coming for Junie.

  36. nightbizzarre says:

    Piece of shit received less than what he deserved!

    Fuck off back to Hicksville, Kentucky you scum bag!
