For some people, going out to clubs is a lifestyle and serves as an integral part of their lives, and Alistair Overeem is one of those people. The former DREAM Heavyweight Champion, Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion and K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 Champion (as well as possible UFC Heavyweight Champion) Alistair Overeem is once again in trouble again. Overeem first stumbled into a world of trouble a few years ago when his big brother, Valentijn Overeem, got into a scuffle in a bathroom in Amsterdam. This resulted in the Overeem bothers dispatching a number of bouncers in short order while Alistair broke his thumb in the process, putting him on the shelf for a while.
The latest incident sounds pretty fishy to me. This morning the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Alistair Overeem was involved in an incident on January 2nd at a night club in Las Vegas. The alleged incident revolves around a 3am shove that one woman claims caused her to stagger backwards. Alistair could face a possible six months in prison or a hefty $1,000 fine in this case if found guilty, but has maintained his innocence in the matter. The woman claims that he "shoved her face" which caused her to stagger backwards, and quite honestly, in the case of Alistair Overeem even a gentle tap could send a full grown man staggering backwards. If Ubereem wanted to legitimately shove someone they'd do a whole lot more than simply stagger backwards.
