Sometimes when the wheels come off for someone they really come off, and as it turns out, that might just be the case for MMA fighter Aleksander Emelianenko.

As is being reported by RIA Novosti, Emelianenko is being sought by Russian authorities on charges of housekeeper abuse (assault) and passport theft; this according to authorities, today.

Speaking on behalf of Russia’s “Investigative Committee,” Vladimir Markin stated that Emelianenko had been placed on a national wanted list for having failed to appear for scheduled questioning. Markin further stated that charges had not yet been laid against the fighter; however, they are to follow shortly.  

For the 23 – 7 (6 –2 Pride) fighter and younger brother to Fedor Emelianenko, it’s not his first problem with the law. He was fined for "hooliganism" in 2013 as a result of an incident that occurred on a plane. He was then detained a few months later for his participation in a fight in a Moscow cafe; no charges were brought.

As it stands now and regarding his current predicament, Emelianenko appears to be on ‘the lam’ and running from the law. As it is with most such cases, he probably won’t be out there long before the police lay their hands on him. Perhaps in retrospect, Emelianenko should have just shown up for the interview.
