Jeff Monson considered flight risk, gets passport revoked

MMA heavyweight and grappling champion, Jeff Monson pleaded “not guilty” to first degree malicious mischief before the court today in Olympia, Washington for “allegedly” spray-painting an anarchist symbol on the State Capitol building.

How “The Snowman” could plead not guilty is a bit bizarre since there are pictures of him in the act all over the Internet. It is likely the reasoning behind his not guilty plea could be that in his mind he was not committing malicious mischief, but rather, spray-painting an anarchist symbol on the State Capitol was his way of protesting the Iraq war and economic inequality, which is what he has claimed from the beginning.

KING-TV reports a Thurston County Superior Court judge ordered Monson to turn over his passport Tuesday while he awaits trial. The order to surrender his passport came after the prosecuting attorney argued that because of Monson’s anarchist beliefs he would have little regard following the orders of the court and should be considered a flight risk.

Jeff Monson in jail but not for graffiti

Mixed-martial arts veteran, Jeff Monson is in the Davie County Jail in North Carolina on Monday on suspicion of an assault charge. It is a completely separate incident from his recent spray-painting episode that recently made the news.

Reports indicate that Monson was in jail Monday, January 19, on suspicion of “assault on a female and injury to real property.”

The thirty-seven year old grappling champion already had a warrant for his arrest in Olympia, Washington for first-degree malicious mischief for allegedly spray-painting an anarchist symbol and other messages on the State Capitol.
