Fans of Leonard Garcia can breathe a sigh of relief. The popular UFC veteran and current WEC featherweight who was arrested late last March for distribution of cocaine and drug trafficking has had the federal charges in his case dropped. Garcia expounds further via his personal myspace page:
“I just wanted to post this to let everyone know that I had the federal charges dropped. I am still dealing with the state but the charges aren’t as serious as they seemed. So I hope to be back in the cage soon … real soon. I’m just waiting on my excellent manager Steven (boogie) Bean to get that straightened out for me. I am gonna be the WEC lightweight champ soon, this is something I feel strongly about. So I’m telling everyone that is my goal and my dream and that is what I’m going to do so I will give it my all to do what I say I’m gonna do.”
We’ll have more on this as soon as the information becomes available.
