Vyacheslav Datsik’s Asylum Request Denied by Norway; Whackjob to be Extradited Back to Russia

(The signs that something was off with Vyacheslav were there for some time, but nobody realized he was nuts until it was too late.)

Insane former MMA fighter and mental hospital escapee, Vyacheslav Datsik has been denied asylum in Norway and will be extradited back to his Russian homeland where he will face additional charges, including unlawfully escaping custody, trespassing and illegal arms possession.

According to officials, the deciding factor in not granting him refuge in the Northern European country was the weapons offense, which came about after he surrendered two handguns to police when he turned himself in September 21.

"We are currently preparing the documents for his [Datsik's] extradition on charges of illegal possession of arms" Oeyvind Nordgaren from the Oslo Police District’s organized crime unit said.

According to a story from RiaNovsti the 33-year-old, who is a member of the white supremacist group, Slavic Union arrived in the country onboard an arms-trafficking vessel and was thought to have been planning an armed attack on embassy personnel in Oslo or Muslims living in Norway prior to surrendering to police.

Datsik (4-9), who was the man to first expose Andrei Arlovski‘s suspect chin when he knocked "The Pitbull" out in the Belarussian’s first fight back in 1999, wasn’t much of a fighter. The Semmy Schilt doppelganger, who was repeatedly disqualified for being too violent with his opponents in the ring retired from competition in 2003 after losing six straight fights.

Still, the media likes to play up the cage fighter angle of the story, especially after Datsik  escaped from a psychiatric hospital in St. Petersburg by tearing through a chain link fence with his bare hands after just one months at the site.

Datsik, who between 1996 to 2001 faced numerous criminal charges including assault and battery, murder threats, arbitrary behavior and theft — all of which were inexplicibly dropped — was sent to prison in 2007 for his part in a series of mobile phone store heists, but psychiatric examinations concluded that he was mentally ill and couldn’t be held responsible for the criminal charges. As such, he was initially locked in a high security psychiatric clinic, but was transferred to the low security he ward in mid-July. He escaped from the facility in August.
