Last week, reports surfaced that UFC flyweight Andrea Lee had allegedly been assaulted by her husband Donny Aaron — the same man who recently came under fire for refusing to cover up his Nazi tattoos.
Since then, Donny Aaron has been charged for his alleged involvement in a May domestic violence case. Police in Shreveport, LA, have issued a warrant for his arrest. Aaron is being charged with one count of domestic battery abuse and one count of false imprisonment.
This news was reported by MMA Fighting, who obtained a statement from the Shreveport Police Department.
The PD’s statement on Donny Aaron reads as follows.
“Shreveport Police have procured a warrant for a man in connection with an early May domestic incident.
On May 5, 2018, Shreveport Police received reports of a domestic abuse battery that occurred in the 4200 block of Wildwood Drive. Arriving officers learned that 43-year-old Donald Aaron, of the 4200 block of Wildwood Drive, allegedly battered the victim causing minor injury. Officers interviewed witnesses and the victim and collected physical evidence.
Investigators with Shreveport Police Department’s Domestic Violence Unit were assigned to the case and following additional interviews, procured warrants for Aaron charging him with one count of Domestic Abuse Battery and one count of False Imprisonment. His bond totals $2,500.00. Investigators believe that Aaron may be in Georgia.
Police are asking anyone with information on Aaron’s exact whereabouts to contact investigators at 318-673-6955. Those wishing to submit information anonymously can contact Shreveport Caddo Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373, Lockemup.org, or via their app P3 Tips.”
News of Donny Aaron’s alleged August attack on Lee was first discussed by Lee’s friend and roommate Andy Nguyen, who was in the house on the night of the incident.
“They had been arguing all week,” Nguyen said in a statement released to MyMMANews. “She couldn’t train because he kept her home. He wouldn’t let her leave. I didn’t call the cops until it got physical and I couldn’t do nothing anymore.
He was trying to choke her, but she was defending herself well. She didn’t get beat up bad. The police did take pictures of marks on her neck. Wasn’t bad this time. No black eyes or anything but he has hit her before. I just wasn’t there. He was my coach and my friend. This was the first time this was in presence and I was not going to let this fly.
The domestic violence has been going on for years. I just never saw it. Here’s another the thing. The UFC and many other people offered Donny FREE tattoo cover-up and he still never did it. You see online, the small swastika on his elbow. I have a bigger picture of a bigger tattoo on the shoulder that nobody knows about. All he had to do was cover the little one but he didn’t. I would have done it for my wife to save her career but he didn’t. This is sh*tty. It’s not Andrea’s fault. She is sweet and kind and she forgave him all the time. This time, this is it.”
This is not Donny Aaron’s first instance of legal trouble. In 2009, he was found guilty of negligent homicide after fatally shooting a man named Ronald Jamison. He was also previously arrested for assaulting his ex-wife’s fiancé.
