Donald Cerrone charged with third-degree assault

Just two months out from his co-main event match against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 27, which takes place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind., on Aug. 28, 2013, Donald Cerrone is apparently mixing it up outside the Octagon.

CagePotato.com reports that "Cowboy" has been charged with third-degree assault in Grand County, Colo., in an apparent "boat rage" incident that took place on Lake Granby in late June. It seems like it was a mutual exchange, with the other individual slapped with with reckless operation of a boat and reckless endangerment.

**** out the official statement from local authorities:

"Donald A. Cerrone, 30 years of age, has been charged with Third Degree Assault by a summons to court, and it is a Class One Misdemeanor. There is no warrant for him at this time. Mr. Cerrone and another person, Jeffrey S. Aley, were involved in a boating rage incident (similar to road rage but by use of boats) on Lake Granby. The incident escalated to the point where Mr Cerrone assaulted Mr. Aley. Mr. Aley was also charged with Reckless Operation of a boat and Reckless Endangerment, a Class Three Misdemeanor. The case is still ongoing, and has not been concluded in court."
It's no secret that the top Lightweight Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contender takes his water sports serious. In fact, he has stated in the past that he is currently pursuing a career in professional wakeboarding
.

Not rock climbing.

No word yet if this incident violates the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's Fighter Code of Conduct and/or if it will impact his pivotal showdown with dos Anjos later this month.

Cerrone most recently bounced back from a tough loss to current No. 1-ranked division contender, Anthony Pettis, dismantling K.J. Noons at UFC 160 in May 2013.

Vehicular assault can be described as swerving toward someone as if you were going to hit them but didn't. Buzzing past someone and splashing them with your wake could be described as vehicular assault. More media misdirection to make headlines.

I was thinking the same thing. Also, he's only been charged, so this may all amount to not much.

Boat rage is the wrong thing to call it, it should be water rage. I mean, we don't call it Car rage, we call it Road rage. Just sayin'.

I guess there is individual rages dependent on what water vehicle you choose to man.

Kayak rage.
Canoe rage
Jet ski rage.
Boogie board rage.
etc.

third degree assault is making a verbal threat, such as "i'm gonna kick your ass, captain morgan!"

Definition of Third Degree Assault in Colorado:

"Third degree assault is a Class 1 misdemeanor, and the only assault charge that is not a felony. Third degree assault does not require intent, but rather that a person knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another person or, with criminal negligence, causes bodily injury to another person by means of a deadly weapon. Third degree assault is an extraordinary risk crime that is subject to the modified sentencing range.

Third degree assault is commonly charged in situations involving minor physical altercations that do not involve apparent injury but do involve some degree of physical pain. Third degree assault is often charged in situations alleged to involve domestic violence, for example when a wife says that her husband hit or pushed her, or vice versa, and it hurt."

If you yelled it loud enough such that the person's ear drums ruptured, then yes.
