Get Your Surprised Face On: “Krazy Horse” Bennett Was Arrested Again

Charles Krazy Horse Bennett
(Some artists work in oils or acrylics. "Krazy Horse" works in mug shots.)

Hope you’re sitting down for this one, Potato Nation, because it isn’t going to be easy to hear.  Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett, the Pride and EliteXC veteran with ten years worth of MMA experience, has been arrested.  Again. reports that Bennett was popped at 6:30 pm on Monday night "on suspicion of felony aggravated battery" at the FIT NHB gym in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he is listed as a team member.  It’s unclear whether that means he was simply picked up at the gym, or whether he actually committed the (alleged) battery there, though the latter would make for a much better story, especially if it happened during a training session.

Obviously, Bennett is innocent until proven guilty, but this isn’t the Horse’s first run-in with the law.  The guy’s been nabbed so many times there is a highlight reel of his mug shot photos, and it’s generally accepted that if you book him to fight there’s always a chance that he’ll miss the date due to being in jail.  His past exploits on the wrong side of the law have included arrests for drug distribution, kidnapping, domestic violence, and battery against a pregnant woman.  Yeah, we know.

After the jump, check some highlights from "Krazy Horse’s" career in legal violence

Look another member of the stupid nigger club. seriously do we need to cover this kinda shit?
intercept440- January 20, 2010 at 6:53 pm
the reason he cant stay out of trouble is because he is a piece of shit, for real? one of his past run ins with the law is beating a pregnant woman??

as entertaining as he is he should still be shot in the face for that, or run over in a car, or maybe even dunked in gasoline and lit on fire, with the promise that if he can do a burning backflip of the cage that youll put him out with the extinguisher

dudes strait up criminal

Wheres the goshdarn cell phone video of KrazyHorse vs. chuteboxe?!!!

This is just too bad. I like Bennett, always puts on a good fight. Too bad he can't stay out of trouble. If the tag team MMA does end up being the wave of the future, then Bennett and Melvin Guillard should team up.

I hope Roy Nelson does backflips off the cage after he knocks out Struve.

Krazy Horse was known for bad cardio, at least early in his career. He has a submission lost from exhaustion even.

I would feel bad for the guy. But he's a special kind of crazy.That & I imagine he doesn't have too many problems in prison.

Old Drunk n Irish... Crazy Horse had great cardio?? Could've swore I've seen him gas out halfway through the first round many a time. But then again, my brain is comparable to eggs getting fried up on a skillet, sooooo...

Perhaps somebody who isn't Old Drunk n Irish or Young Drunk n Handsome can help clear this up for us? Either way, love watching Caballo Loco fight. Charles Bennet, not so much. Crazy Horse? Ahhhh yeeaahhhhhh

Well said OBI. I love it when he turns to the camera and starts mouthin shit while the ref is giving instructions. That shit cracks me up!!

man i wish someone could put this guy in a cage and feed him raw meat, only to let him out to fight. MMA needs more entertainers like this guy.. i'd love to see him in strikeforce

walkin to your fight on a cell phone, thats funny shit.

In all seriousness, Horse is super entertaining.

I went to the 1st EXC show in Southaven and was asked to hold Crazy horses/or his mangers digital camera,when he knocked out KJ Noons. One of the guys I was with was from Ocala and we were bullshitting with Horse before the fight. Never have I seen anyone so calm and cool before going into the ring. Funny as hell.

Last thing he said before the walkout? If something happens to that camera I'll kick your ass next.

I believed him.

As funny and epic as that video is it didn't seem like Crazy Horse really instigated anything. The whole chute box team was standing over him talking shit before he snapped, threw a punch and got choked out. Of course the crazy rumor is after he woke up he chased Wanderlei down and knocked him out......but I kind of don't believe that one.

Just checked that gym's website out. Does anyone know any details on how Mike Maestas died?

I tried googling it but couldn't find anything. A relatively young fighter, born in 85, but died last year? Record was 9-2-1.

I'm not overly fussed, I'm just always intrigued how young men end up dying, especially seeing as he fought pro.
Old_Bald_and_Irish- January 20, 2010 at 8:17 am
I, for one, am truely disappointed to hear this.

I love watchin' Krazy Horse fight. The man's a nut-job and couldn't be more entertaining if he tried.

To his credit, he is a wiley fighter with unorthadox striking. His cardio is great. He's fast.

...unfortunately, he hates the ground game and doesn't like to train in it.

Surprisingly, he's done some very good escapes/defense when he gets taken to the mat.

I had always hoped he would get his act together and at least show up on a Strikeforce Challengers Series fight or Cage Rage.

....seems like we won't be seeing him for a while.

Dammit i was just going to say that VisitingDead, it is honestly one of my favorite videos, the best part is Wanderlei in the background.
J-Dog- January 20, 2010 at 7:46 am
Well you can't say the dude doesn't have charisma....
shitbag- January 20, 2010 at 7:44 am
Don Zimmer would fuck him up
iDestroy- January 20, 2010 at 7:41 am
Wow. This dude is just like that lion heart guy except he wins and does things like use the ropes to hop up and kick Japanese dudes in the face. So I like him.
VisitingDeadAncestors- January 20, 2010 at 7:39 am
shame they didn't post the video of him mouthing of backstage to Cristiano Marcello of Chute Boxe camp and getting choked the fuck OUT... priceless!
