Junie Browning was recently arrested for assaulting three nurses at St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson, Nevada, after The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8 alum was admitted for taking 16 pills of Klonopin — an anti-anxiety drug — “in an attempt to harm himself,” according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Browning, who was brought to the medical facility by two concerned friends, allegedly pushed a female nurse, as well as struck two male nurses, when attempting to discharge himself against their better judgment.
He then reportedly warned the staff:
“Do you know who I am? I will kill you and rape your family.”
Browning was labeled a “bad boy” after several drunken, and sometimes violent, episodes on the Spike TV mixed martial arts reality series. He was nearly kicked off the program several times; however, UFC President Dana White gave him numerous chances to redeem himself.
Whether or not Browning gets another chance after this incident remains to be seen.
The Kentucky native faces three counts of battery on a health care provider. He was released today from the Henderson Detention Center.
Browning most recently lost to Cole Miller via first round submission (guillotine choke) at UFC Fight Night 18 back in April
