Chris Leben is not a drunk (anymore)

There’s a slightly important update to Chris Leben’s apparent DUI that you should read:

When Chris moved to Hawaii he was in the process of completing classes for his probation on an old DUI in Portland Oregon. We worked hard to get his probation transferred to Hawaii but were unsuccessful.

When he got the call to fight Bisping on June 7th in London he knew what he had to do.

He immediately flew to Oregon and turned himself in on the probation violation. The warrant was a “no bail” warrant so he will have to sit in jail for 8-10 days before he gets a hearing. The moment he appeared before the judge after turning himself in the warrant was revoked and he is able to get his VISA for London.

Now I’m not one to pat anyone on the back regarding a DUI charge, but it’s still pretty ballsy that Leben agreed to the UK fight knowing he’d have to deal with that warrant first. Of course, I do wonder if he realized he’d end up in jail for a week over it, or was that something of a surprise?

    Well at least he wasn’t busted for handing out Mickeys at the merry-go-round.

    Somehow I don’t think he’s worried about getting banged in the ass while he’s in jail…anyone who tries might be in for a bit of a nasty surprise.

  • Tommy

    He knew. Anyone on Parole or Probation knows that if you violate it is always a no bond situation before you see the Judge. The first hearing Judge the next day doesn’t count. You always do at least a little time on a violation.

    well, at least he wasn’t zooming around naked with his head out the sunroof.

    “I get caught driving around drunk and STILL put the stamp on kids!”

    I’m not sure why you say he’s not a drunk ANYMORE. Maybe he’s just making enough now to afford taxi’s.

    IMO drunks do stupid shit like assault people and drive while intoxicated. I’m sure Leben still drinks but I dunno if he’s still a drunk since he seems to have pulled his life together in Hawaii

    Let’s not be quick to judge. For all we know, Leben was pushing his scooter Sasha home and…

    he should fight Tanner for the title of most pathetic 185 lb. drunk
