[UPDATED] Local ‘Caged’ Fighter Acquitted
[UPDATE] Tony Kelley has been found not guilty of simple battery.
[ORIGINAL STORY] Trouble for one of the MMA fighters on the MTV show, “Caged.” Shreveport local Tony Kelley has been booted off of his fight team after an incident at a local club over the weekend.
Twenty-five-year old Kelley faces a simply battery charge. A woman claims he grabbed her around the neck and choked her when she refused to dance with him.
UFC star Tito Ortiz, who owns Punishment Athletics, released a statement saying that Kelley is no longer associated with his team. After his appearance on “Caged,” Kelley was chosen by Ortiz to try out for his team.
