More Details Emerge in BJ Penn’s Alleged Assault in Bar Parking Lot

Hawaii News Now – KGMB and KHNL

A HawaiiNewsNow report published yesterday filled in a few more details about BJ Penn‘s alleged assault of a friend in Maui over the weekend. As the story goes, Penn and Kuuipo Mokiao were drinking together at a bar called Kauhale’s in Kihei on Saturday night, when Penn began picking a fight with people inside. Mokiao told investigators that he pushed Penn to stop him, and Penn responded by challenging Mokiao to a fight.

Mokiao apparently agreed to go outside with Penn, which means he has bigger balls than we do. But the altercation quickly turned violent once they headed into the parking lot, as Penn suddenly punched Mokiao in the face, then kneed him in the forehead while he was defending himself. According to the HawaiiNewsNow story:

Sources said medics took the 37-year-old victim to the emergency room at Maui Memorial Medical Center for a fractured left eye socket. Mokiao told police that Penn left the scene after security guards broke up the argument. Officers later tracked Penn down at a hotel in Wailea. He had suffered a minor cut to his right eye, according to sources. Penn was arrested for second-degree assault and then released pending the police investigation.”

Could Mokiao simply have gotten the worst of a consensual (though drunken) bar fight? Let he who has never beat his friend’s ass in a bar parking lot cast the first stone, am I right?

Penn has yet to make a public statement about the incident. We’ll let you know if that changes.
