Brock Lesnar pleads guilty to hunting chargesPosted on December 20, 2011, 05:13 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Former UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar found himself with an unwanted distraction last week when it was announced that he was facing charges in Alberta, Canada relating to a hunting trip he took in November 2010.
Today, a lawyer representing Lesnar, was able to put the case behind him with a guilty plea to one count of improper tagging of an animal. Lesnar was fined $1,725 and given a six-month hunting suspension. Two other charges, spoiling of skin and edible flesh as well as possession of a controlled animal were dropped.
Lesnar had the following to say about the case, "As far as I'm concerned, I didn't disobey the law. I guess in other people's judgment, they saw it differently. At the end of the day, if they saw fit that I did something wrong, I'm a grown-up and I'll take my fine and go on with my life." – for more see MMAFighting.com
