Update: ‘Krazy Horse’ Arrested Again
“Krazy Horse” Bennett was arrested Monday on suspicion of
felony aggravated battery, according to the Web site for the
Bernalillo County, N.M., Sheriff’s Department.
The site says Bennett was arrested at 110 Lomas Boulevard, which is
where he had been training at the FIT NHB gym.
FIT NHB representative Tom Vaughn told Sherdog.com via e-mail that
Bennett was involved in an altercation with a teammate on Jan.
“During routine sparring, tempers flared between Charles and the
other fighter, and Charles ended up getting dropped by the larger
training partner,” wrote Vaughn. “They were quickly broken up and
Charles left the mat, got dressed and left the building. He
returned about 15 minutes later, walked down to the training area
and pulled out a heavy piece of steel he must have found in the
parking lot and began attacking the other fighter (from behind)
with intent to do serious damage. He was tackled by two other
fighters and disarmed.
Vaughn said the incident occurred during a pro training session,
though women and children were entering the building at the time
for a regular class that followed and might have seen the attack.
Vaughn said the assaulted fighter is “OK,” and that Bennett, who’d
trained with FIT NHB off and on for six months, would no longer be
a part of the gym’s fight team.
Bennett, 30, has a long history of run-ins with the law. He has
been arrested for everything from traffic violations and drug
distribution to kidnapping and battery upon a pregnant female.
According to the Bernalillo County Sherriff’s Department, Bennett
was arrested at 6:30 p.m. and booked into the Metropolitan
A veteran of 40 professional fights, Bennett has competed all over
the world and holds notable victories against former EliteXC
lightweight champion Karl James
Noons and former featherweight King of Pancrase Yoshiro
Maeda. He last appeared in December, when he suffered a
first-round knockout at the hands of Bobby Green
at King of the Cage “Fight 4 Hope” in Highland, Calif.
