Report: Junie Browning Turns Himself into Thailand Authorities

By FCF Staff

The search for Junie Browning is apparently over in Thailand, as the former UFC competitor has reportedly turned himself into authorities, following his involvement in a barroom brawl earlier this month.

According to a report from Phuketwan.com, Browning visited a police station in Phuket yesterday, to document his side of the story in regards to a December 11th altercation in the city. An initial report from Phuketwan.com last week claimed that Browning had sparked the fight, by allegedly striking a woman, and that several people intervened as a result.

Browing reached out to media outlets afterwards claiming that the account was wrong; he had not been responsible for starting the fight, and that in addition, he believed he was still in danger and that he was seeking the help of U.S. Embassy officials.

In the most recent report from Phuketwan.com, it relays that “The dispute between Browning and the others who were injured in the brawl leaves police with differing accounts of the rights and wrongs of the events.”

And that further: “Rather than pick and choose who is telling the truth, officers are likely to continue to try to conduct a mediation session aimed at finding a compromise.”

Although Browning and several other people were hospitalized after the altercation, it appears as though no charges will stem from the incident.

Browning, who was a controversial competitor during TUF 8 for his violent outbursts, was arrested in 2009 for assaulting several nurses at a Las Vegas Hospital, following an alleged suicide attempt.

In his recent appeal to the media about the December 11th incident, Browning stated “I am aware of previous allegations in my past that may lead people to believe that the way the event is being portrayed in the media is true.”
