Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Mike Whitehead Might Be In a Bit of a Legal Jam

(Pictured, from right to left: Mike Whitehead, Tim Sylvia, unidentified plant.)

According to multiple sources, former UFC fighter and “Ultimate Fighter” contestant Mike Whitehead is being sought by Las Vegas police on sexual assault and drug charges. And when we say drug charges, we aren’t talking about a half-smoked joint and a couple of Percocet in the ashtray of his car. We’re talking about a full-scale marijuana growing operation, with about $500,000 worth of plants. And that’s in addition to, you know, the sexual assault thing.

Las Vegas police reportedly went to Whitehead’s house in the first place because of the sexual assault allegations, but while there they discovered the stockpile of marijuana plants. At that point we can only assume that the investigating officers simultaneously dropped their flashlights, turned to one another with mouths agape, and exclaimed, ‘Dude.’

Now, we’re all for withholding judgment until all the facts are in. And for all we know, he might have just been holding half a million dollars worth of weed for a friend. It happens. But sexual assault? That’s the kind of charge that, if one cannot clear one’s name swiftly and completely, tends to leave a bit of a stain on the old reputation. No one wants to be friends with a guy who would commit sexual assault. The sad irony is, almost everyone wants to be friends with a guy who has a bunch of weed in his garage.

Let’s hope Whitehead has a good explanation for all this. If he doesn’t, he could be going away for a long, long time.

How the fuck is it called "SIN CITY" and theres no fucking weed allowed? VEGAS DRUG LAWS=EPIC FAIL

I couldn't agree more man, I love living in canada for its lax weed laws. I got caught with a quarter ounce and the cops just took it from me and told me to fuck off, they really can't be bothered with anything small time, just the big time operations... so I went home where the rest of my weed was and got really baked and basked in my own awesomeness. Sounds like Mike is fucked though, those U.S.A chronic laws are waaay too harsh...

Meh @ "sexual assault" until I hear the details.

He probably wouldn't give her the weed before he got the tang so she called the police on him.

Thats what bitches do these days because they can.

Was this what King Mo was talking about when he said he "ends careers"??

Where did you get this photo? Google pictures search for "Mike Whitehead + plant" ?
AkilleeZ- April 13, 2010 at 12:07 pm
First off...cops are fucking RETARDS. They pick up a dime bag an say its street value is $900 dollars. He probably had a nice size room dedicated to growing, but I doubt it was yielding anymore than a few pounds every few months.

I love Canada. A friend of mine was pulled over with 23 pounds in the trunk of his car and that was well over a year ago. 2 weeks ago they finally sentenced him. To 1 year house arrest. He can still go to work, has 5 hours leisure time every week, and can even drink and have up to 4 friends at his house. Sadly, in Nevada it's a whole different story. Mike Whitehead might be shit out of luck, and with that much weed and that expensive of an operation you know for a fact their were some wealthy investors trusting Whitehead with their capital. There's going to be some pissed people pretty soon.

As for the sexual assault thing, fuck that. Bitches lie, all the time. I will believe that one when I see it.
