• Former WWE Wrestler Granted $1 Million Bail In Attempted Murder Case
Earlier this year, former WWE wrestler & former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez shot a man.
According to MMA reporter Fight Oracle, Cain did this because a man allegedly abused one of his children at day care:
“The talk going around is Cain chased down 2 men riding in a vehicle. One of them is accused of abuse of one of Cain’s children at day care. The other person involved is the father of the alleged abuser.
Cain shot the father of the alleged abuser. I’m told Cain fired at least three times.
I don’t know if he got the 2 men confused. I don’t know if all the shots were fired at the same person. Or at both and only one landed.”
According to Police reports, Cain fired a .40-caliber handgun “multiple times” into a truck that was carrying 43-year-old Harry Goularte Jr. (who inappropriately touched the 4-year-old victim on multiple occasions), who is being charged for molestation.
Cain also rammed Harry’s Chevy Silverado truck with his Ford truck.
Velasquez is facing 10 charges, including:
– Attempted murder
– Shooting at an occupied motor vehicle or aircraft
– Three counts of assault with a firearm
– Three counts of assault with a deadly weapon
– Willfully discharging a firearm from a vehicle and carrying a loaded firearm with intent to commit a felony.
If convicted, Cain faces more than 20 years in prison.
Sports Illustrated is reporting that a Judge has granted Cain $1 million bail after he served 8 months in California’s Santa Clara County while awaiting trial.
Back in April, Velasquez issued the following statement:
“To everyone who has expressed their support for us, my family and I can never thank you enough.
From the depths of our hearts and souls, we are eternally grateful for your love. Your selfless acts and encouraging words have given me strength in my darkest moments.
This story is complex and is slowly unfolding right now. To all the true victims of this case, may God grant you the strength to speak publicly.
Although the hardest part is reliving the pain you have suffered, by speaking honestly, justice will be done and your true recovery will begin.
I will never stop helping and loving my community and all of you. Thank you for loving me.
— Cain Velasquez”
