"The Lunatik" Junie Browning is back in the news.

Las Vegas Fox 5 News is reporting that Las Vegas Metro Police has issued an arrest warrant for former UFC fighter Junie Browning after he failed to appear in court for last month’s incident at St. Rose Domincan Hospital where he allegedly assaulted the staff.

The 24-year-old mixed martial arts fighter from Kentucky was taken to the hospital in Henderson, Nev., on Oct. 6, after he purposefully ingested a large dose of the anti-anxiety drug Klonopin in an attempt harm himself.

Once at the hospital, the arrest report states Browning tried to leave and became angry. He then pushed a female nurse, punched a male nurse, kicked another male nurse, and yelled “Do you know who I am? I will kill you and rape your family.”

The FOX5 report states they attempted to contact Browning for an interview, but was met with a profanity-laced recorded message and the calls were not returned.

Browning has publicly apologized for the Oct. 6 incident, and his coach and friend Shawn Tompkins has been trying to help the young fighter. Just one week following the incident, Browning struck a deal with MMA promotion MMA Big Show, and is scheduled to fight on Nov. 28 in Indiana.

Bloody Elbow as well as the promoter for MMA Big Show both have plenty of interesting comments regarding this situation. The promoter also suggests the failed court appearance by Browning was due to a “clerical error.”
