A suspect has been arrested by police in connection with the recent attacks against Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Anthony Pettis, who was twice victimized by car bandits at his Milwaukee residence.
The surprising part? The perpetrator is just 13 years old.
“It`s scary to see where the youth is at,” Pettis told FOX 6 Now. “I feel there has to be some changes and I think I`m in a position where I can make some changes so it`s up to me to go out there. Instead of how do I replace my belongs, how do I make it right for everybody else?”
Not long after his cars were set on fire (see the video here), Pettis had to watch his Range Rover get robbed in broad daylight. Probably not the kind of thing anyone needs to be dealing with in the weeks leading up to an interim title fight.
The recent arrest stems from last month’s theft (watch it).
Pettis battles fellow 145-pound contender Max Holloway at the upcoming UFC 206 pay-per-view (PPV) event this Saturday night (Dec. 10, 2016) inside Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
