According to MMAJunkie.com, UFC lightweight fighter Spencer Fisher was arrested on a minor charge this week in his hometown of Bettondorf, Iowa. Fisher posted a bail of $300 and was released shortly after he was incarcerated.
Mickey Dubberley, Fisher’s manager, contacted MMAJunkie to shed light on the incident which resulted in charges of “interfering with an official’s duties.”
“Spencer went to pick up his daughters from school, and he doubled parked because there were no other parking spaces available,” Dubberly said. “The police asked Spencer to move his car, and Spencer stated he would only be a second. The police asked him again to move his car, and Spencer kept proceeding to pick up his daughters from school.”
The fighter’s manager does not expect much to come from the charges and feels confident that the allegations will be dismissed.
“We feel these charges will be dropped,” he said.
Spencer “The King” Fisher owns a 23-6 record as a professional mixed martial arts fighter and has been on the UFC’s roster since 2005. Fisher is looking to break a two-fight losing streak (the Iowan took home a submission-elbows loss to Joe Lauzon and a unanimous decision defeat to Dennis Siver in his last two outings) by taking home a victory against Kurt Warburton at the upcoming UFC 120, taking place this October 16th at the O2 Arena in London, England.
