One of the three original co-founders of the MMA clothing line “TapouT” died earlier this morning in a car accident that saw his vehicle cut in half after he hit a light pole.
An off-duty officer who happened to be driving in the opposite direction saw two vehicles speeding past him. Charles “Mask” Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene while his girlfriend who was also in the vehicle with him at the time was taken to a local hospital.
Below is a statement from TapouT:
“It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we must regretfully confirm the passing of our beloved friend, brother and co-founder Charles ‘Mask’ Lewis following a car accident that occurred last night. We are currently in the process of setting up a memorial service in his honor and will release more details as they become available.
Many thanks to all for the outpouring of blessings and well-wishing during this incredibly difficult time.”
