The Shreveport Police Department, Louisiana is in the process of issuing an arrest warrant for Donny Aaron, the husband of UFC flyweight Andrea Lee.
Cpl. Angie Willhite of Shreveport PD confirmed that Donny Aaron will be facing charges of false imprisonment and domestic violence battery based on an incident that occurred late night August 4th into the morning hours of August 5th, according to an incident report from the Shreveport PD.
According to MyMMANews.com, professional fighter Andy Nguyen witnessed the incident and accused Aaron of “trying to burn a cigarette on [Lee’s] arm and body” and “trying to choke her.” On Wednesday, Nguyen posted a photo of a female MMA fighter who was reportedly murdered by her boyfriend in 2011. Nguyen accompanied the photo with a caption that read, “Already lost [Maryellen Cano] to domestic violence. I wasn’t gonna lose another friend.”
Aaron, 43, was initially in the media spotlight earlier this year when a photo of him showed a Nazi tattoo on his arm. Both Aaron and Lee apologized for the photo and claimed he got the tattoo while in prison, but Aaron stated he could not have it removed.
In 2009, Aaron was convicted of negligent homicide after shooting an unarmed man during an altercation near his home in 2005.
Lee (9-2) has one appearance in the UFC up to now with a three-round decision win over Veronica Macedo in May. The 29-year-old is considered a top prospect in the Woman’s flyweight division.
