We heard rumblings about this in the comments section of our recent interview with winless fighter Scott "LionHeart" Blevins, but we assumed it was just your average case of haters hatin’. Well dig this bombshell, courtesy of the Times-Union Online:
MENTONE – The two-month child molesting investigation of a Mentone man led to five arrests Thursday night.
Mentone police were conducting a two-month investigation on Scott Ryan Blevins, 31, of 513 N. Morgan St., Mentone
. Blevins is believed to have molested a girl under the age of 14 on several different occasions. Blevins was booked into Kosciusko County Jail Thursday night and held on a $200,000 bond.
After Blevins was arrested, he informed police of information concerning drug sales and participated in a controlled drug buy of 1-1/2 ounces of marijuana from Matthew Haag at his apartment. After Haag was arrested, police found a quarter pound of weed in his apartment. Haag was booked into KCJ on a charge of dealing marijuana and held on a $5,000 bond.
Officers then conducted a controlled buy in Warsaw involving Sarah Hein, Nicky Blair and Blevins. Hein and Blair fled the parking lot, throwing a one-pound bag of marijuana out of their vehicle during a short pursuit in Warsaw. Warsaw, Mentone and Kosciusko County officers stopped Hein’s vehicle near Buffalo and Fort Wayne streets in Warsaw and discovered four children inside the vehicle.
Hein and Blair were arrested for neglect of a dependent, as well as Hein being preliminarily charged with dealing marijuana. Hein and Blair are each being held on $5,000 bond.
Dude? Gross. We’d like to say "no, not our LionHeart, this is clearly just a set-up." But what innocent man, after being arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, immediately helps the cops bust a marijuana dealer? And just when we thought we could go one week without an MMA fighter getting arrested. Dammit, Scott, we were so close!
