You guys remember Brian Bowles, right? The pasty, Mark Wahlberg-looking UFC veteran best known for (figuratively) ending Miguel Torres‘ career? Anything? I wouldn’t blame you if you’re coming up short, as the former WEC bantamweight champion has been MIA since getting TKO’d by George Roop at UFC 160 and subsequently failing his post-fight drug test.

Well as it turns out, ol’ Bowlesy has spent his time away from the octagon pursuing various…pursuits that wouldn’t exactly fall in line with what you’d expect of MMA fighters not named Charles Bennett. Mainly, mainlining meth and valium.

Bowles was arrested for possession of both aforementioned drugs in his Georgia home a couple weeks back, and is now facing six felony charges. From the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Facebook:

On January 14, 2015, The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office arrested Rhomney Marie Moon (35) of Jefferson, Georgia and Brian David Bowles (34) also of Jefferson, Georgia on drug related charges. The Sheriff’s Office responded to Bowles residence on Stoner Road in Arcade, Georgia in an attempt to serve an arrest warrant on a wanted female possibly at this location. This particular female was not located however; Investigator’s found Moon and discovered she did have an outstanding Probation Warrant.

After a search of the immediate area Investigator’s found a quantity of methamphetamine. A Search Warrant was executed at the residence and a quantity of marijuana, other narcotics, a gun and numerous packaging materials were also located within the home. Moon and Bowels were both arrested and transported to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. Moon has been charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Schedule IV Drug, Possession of Schedule IV Drug with Intent to Sell, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell, Possession of Tools for the Commission of a Crime and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime. Bowles is charged with the same. Both are currently incarcerated.

“The Sheriff’s Office responded to Bowles residence on Stoner Road in Arcade, Georgia.” Stoner Road. Brian Bowles lives on Stoner Road. Please, please someone tell me that he has a dog named Doobie. Or Heisenberg.

Of course, getting arrested isn’t exactly a new thing for Bowles. The former UFC fighter was booked on suspicion of DUI in 2010 and was also picked up by Jackson County Sheriff’s Department in 1999, 2003 and 2007, according to Yahoo.

We’ll have more details on Bowles’ arrest as the information is made available, but for now, I think we should all just be thankful that Domestic Assault was not among the charges listed against him. It’s a low bar, but someone’s gotta set it.
