Junie Browning Turns Himself In To Police

Former “Ultimate Fighter” castmember Junie Browning‘s long, strange trip through Thailand may finally be coming to a close.

Browning was sought by police after he was involved in a bar brawl in Phuket last week, and has since sent out pleas to the U.S. Embassy seeking refuge to exit the country and get back to the United States.

According to the latest report from Phuketwan.com, Browning turned himself in to police on Wednesday, but was not arrested.

This is where the story takes a turn for the strange.

Browning was a part of the brawl at the bar in Phuket, as well as another incident hours later at a local hospital where he and some of the other participants in the fight once again engaged in some sort of violence.

On Wednesday, Browning and his girlfriend, along with a lawyer, showed up at the Phuket police station to face authorities who had been looking for him since the incident occurred.

Browning had originally fled Thailand, apparently fearing for his life.

Now, he’s gone back and is speaking with the authorities, but even still no charges may end be being levied on the Kentuckian’s head.

Authorities apparently have several different versions of how the fight actually started, who the aggressors were, and what happened once the brawl got out of hand.

They are now working towards a mediation in which the parties involved may have to reach restitution for medical bills and damage done at the bar, but at this time it doesn’t sound like anyone will be charged with a criminal act.

None of the parties involved, including Browning, were held by the police overnight.

According to the report, Browning was urged to seek out the police and turn himself in when a resident of Phuket and warden to the U.S. Embassy contacted the former UFC fighter.

Browning will now hopefully reach a mediation with the authorities and the other parties involved, and put the incident behind him.

    Without posting judgement on the situation, all I can say is irresponsible things happen to irrepsonisble people’ Everyone has a friend that continues to make excusses for being in sticky situations, they usually always consider themselves the victim.

  • candelario

    • RonnieV

      Yeah but they only continuously happen to the same people… like Junie Browning

  • bajafox

    The real question we have here is, how the hell does this psycho have a girl friend?

    • SISCO88

      Think bajafox, Junie is from Kentucky. He had at least 4 cousins to choose from.

      • bajafox

    Hopefully, the truth will come out and the true culprits (guilty ones) end u p making the payments on restitution. According to Browning, it lays on the other party.

    My grandma has a cat and it fought the neighbors cat the other day! Then they took them apart for a time out!!!
    This story is about as irrelevant to the MMA world as the Browning story. Please MMA weekly call me and I will give you my grandma’s number so you can get some photos and an update!

      When your grandmothers cat smacks her around a bit I hope you still offer up the pictures. Those might be fun to look at.

    Man there’s a ton of haters on here. Junie is just a guy. Just like all sports, there are a bunch of different characters. People we consider good guys, and those we consider bad. It’s just life. The good and bad is what makes it interesting.
    Junie is known for being on TUF. There’s nothing wrong with a need site reporting news about an mma fighter. Whether its good, or bad it’s still news.
    I can only imagine how enraged you guys must get at the normal media news. Hell, you may end up homicidal if you were to watch political news. They are the masters of what seems irrelevant.

  • isaiasnavarro

    Come on guy! Really hating on this poor cat? he hasnt fought an any Legit organization an his Face is still shown just because hes was on the ultimate fighter! He should get banned from mma ….
