39-year old, former UFC heavyweight champion, Cain Valassquez, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, after authorities allege Valasquez shot a man in Northern California on Monday.
A report from the ASSOCIATED PRESS said San Jose Police responded to a shooting on Monday. Police said they found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The report did not say why/how Valasquez’s name popped up on the police’s radar for this shooting, but he has been held at the Santa Clara County Main Jail without bail since Monday. Valasquez has a preliminary hearing set for later today (Wednesday).
