UFC flyweight Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall was arrested in Irvine, Calif., earlier this week, but the details surrounding that arrest have been confusing at best.

McCall’s criminal attorney, George Vargas, on Saturday clarified the facts surrounding his client’s arrest, as well as the details of his past that lead to him being picked up for two outstanding warrants, to MMAWeekly.com.

According to Vargas:

In 2008, Ian was arrested for possession of prescription drugs without a prescription and paraphernalia.  The paraphernalia was needles that he used to take the fluid out of his ears.  Part of Ian’s punishment for that case was that he was to do 20 days of Cal Trans (physical labor).

The following year, Ian was having more troubles and he entered and completed a six-month residential drug treatment program at Nancy Clark’s The Recovery Center in Orange County.  Ian completely turned his life around, began training hard and became the man he is today.  

On June 14 of this year, Ian was pulled over for a traffic stop. He was given a ticket for PC14601 (driving on a suspended license). Ian’s license had been suspended for unpaid traffic and parking tickets.

The very next day, on June 15, Ian went to the Harbor Justice Center with his agent, and paid over $2,600 in fines.  He mistakenly thought that the ticket from the previous day had been handled. A few weeks later, when the court date for that case came, Ian did not show and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Aug. 14, once again, Ian was stopped while driving home from the gym.  At that time he was arrested for the two warrants: one for not completing the 20 days of Cal Trans work for the 2008 case, and the other for not showing up to court on the driving on a suspended license ticket that he had thought that he had handled.

Because McCall was on parole from previous charges and a warrant was issued in his name, the UFC flyweight must spend a mandatory time of 30 days in jail for his current arrest, according to his manager, Jason House of Iridium Sports.

McCall is scheduled for a Sept. 13 release date.

    I’m glad it’s just traffic infringements. Hopefully he can put it all behind him when he’s released and stay on this side of the fences.

    I am still confused. If he has had all this interaction with police and the courts since 2008 why wasn’t he picked up on that outstanding warrant long before 2012?

    I don’t understand. He was on parole? Not for the crimes he only had to do 20 days community service for, correct? It doesn’t sound like he’s been in real trouble for at least four years.

    Look at the guy’s criminal record he was in and out of Prison,had charges coming out of his ass.DUIs,Gets busted with a large amount Oxy-Contin and Dilaudid which both are very popular with intravenous users he also had a prescription for Oxys on someone else’s name and a bunch syringes,but”of course”the Syringes were for his ears lmao.So he gets 20days prison term,which he totally ignores.Than he get stopped driving on a suspended license coz of unpaid tickets.He doesn’t show up at court,yet it’s not”his fault”.He explains every ******* things,it’s always on someone else never his fault right!!!That tells me he really needs to go to a rehab program,coz he has a huge problem with pain killers and denial!!! That is the worst thing when ppl say it wasn’t their fault an keep denying responsibility.I know Iwas the same and it took about 2 and a half yrs to see clear and to learn that everything I do or for get to do is all my responsibility coz I am an Adult even if I didn’t know it or for got to o it!!! I think he should get sentenced for an 18month drug and denial program!!!
