Kazuo Misaki Sentenced Guilty! What About August 2nd?
SENGOKU fighter Kazuo Misaki was sentenced guilty in Tokyo for interference with a public servant in the execution of his or her duties on June 25th.
On the afternoon of March 19th Misaki was found talking on his cellphone while driving. The police officer demanded Misaki to stop but Misaki suddenly accelerated and escaped (It doesn’t say if he stopped and then accelerated or how exactly it happened). During that escape, he knocked into the left door mirror of the police car (edit: seems that Misaki’s car mirror knocked into the wrist of the police officer).
He was arrested in May and was sentenced guilty on June 25th after admitting to the accusations. It seems that he was sentenced to one year of penal servitude and three years of probation.
I guess now we know why he didn’t show up at Ishii’s outdoor signing event. These things are never good for a sport such as MMA where MMA fighters in Japan still don’t have as good of images as people might believe.
