Alistair Overeem Reportedly Charged With Misdemeanor Battery

According to reports, Alistair Overeem has been charged with one count of misdemeanor battery stemming from a late-night incident following his UFC 141 win over Brock Lesnar.

UFC heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem has been charged with one count of misdemeanor battery stemming from a New Year’s weekend disturbance in Las Vegas, according to reports from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

At 3:00 a.m. on January 2nd, Overeem allegedly “pushed or shoved a woman in the face, causing her to stagger back,” inside the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel. The fighter was not arrested by Las Vegas police, but did receive a citation.

According to reports from the District Attorney’s office, Overeem’s court appearance has been scheduled for 8:00 a.m. on February 21st. Should he be convicted, the 31-year-old Dutchman would face a maximum of six months in a Clark County Detention Center and a fine upwards of $1,000.

Overeem has tapped the services of renown Las Vegas defense attorney David Chesnoff.

“Alistair was not arrested, but was summoned to court,” Chesnoff explained. “There are two sides to this story and we intend on vigorously defending this. Alistair maintains his innocence.”

The incident took place just days after Overeem knocked out former UFC champion Brock Lesnar in two-and-a-half minutes in the main event of UFC 141 to earn the next shot at Junior dos Santos’ heavyweight title.
