UFC flyweight Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall was arrested in Irvine, Calif., earlier this week, but the details surrounding that arrest have been confusing at best.

McCall’s criminal attorney, George Vargas, on Saturday clarified the facts surrounding his client’s arrest, as well as the details of his past that lead to him being picked up for two outstanding warrants, to MMAWeekly.com.

According to Vargas:

In 2008, Ian was arrested for possession of prescription drugs without a prescription and paraphernalia.  The paraphernalia was needles that he used to take the fluid out of his ears.  Part of Ian’s punishment for that case was that he was to do 20 days of Cal Trans (physical labor).

The following year, Ian was having more troubles and he entered and completed a six-month residential drug treatment program at Nancy Clark’s The Recovery Center in Orange County.  Ian completely turned his life around, began training hard and became the man he is today.  

On June 14 of this year, Ian was pulled over for a traffic stop. He was given a ticket for PC14601 (driving on a suspended license). Ian’s license had been suspended for unpaid traffic and parking tickets.

The very next day, on June 15, Ian went to the Harbor Justice Center with his agent, and paid over $2,600 in fines.  He mistakenly thought that the ticket from the previous day had been handled. A few weeks later, when the court date for that case came, Ian did not show and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Aug. 14, once again, Ian was stopped while driving home from the gym.  At that time he was arrested for the two warrants: one for not completing the 20 days of Cal Trans work for the 2008 case, and the other for not showing up to court on the driving on a suspended license ticket that he had thought that he had handled.

Because McCall was on parole from previous charges and a warrant was issued in his name, the UFC flyweight must spend a mandatory time of 30 days in jail for his current arrest, according to his manager, Jason House of Iridium Sports.

McCall is scheduled for a Sept. 13 release date.
