    Olympia mixed-martial arts champion and avowed anarchist Jeff Monson is in the Davie County Jail in North Carolina, a jail official said Monday, on suspicion of an assault charge unrelated to his arrest warrant in Olympia for allegedly spray-painting the Capitol.

    A Davie County, North Carolina corrections officer said Monday that Monson was in jail Monday on suspicion of "assault on a female and injury to real property."

    Monson, 37, has an active warrant for his arrest in Olympia on suspicion of first-degree malicious mischief for allegedly spray-painting an anarchist symbol and other messages on the State Capitol.

    Monson could not be reached by phone Monday.

    Stephanie Trapani, 30, of Advance, North Carolina, said Monson is in jail for trashing her home and grabbing her after an argument Saturday. Trapani says she had a romantic relationship with Monson, but they got in an argument after found out he had romantic relationships with other women. She also alleges "he has two wives." She said she found out information about his other girlfriends on his cell phone and she then threw the cell phone out the window of her car while she was driving to pick him up at the gym. When he found out his cell phone was gone when they returned to Trapani's home, he got angry. "He went ballistic," she said.

    At Trapani's home, Monson packed up his belongings, Trapani said. But when she told him she had thrown his cell phone out the window of her car, he grabbed her laptop and started "hitting the columns" of her home. She said Monson was enraged, and put a hole in the wall and flipped over a grandfather clock.

    "He's being charged with domestic violence and damage to property because he destroyed my house," Trapani said. "He started just bashing holes in the walls and the columns."

    Trapani said her neighbor called police and Monson was placed under arrest around 8 p.m.

    Trapani said she met Monson Sept. 27 at a fight in North Carolina. She said she is a spokesmodel for a fightwear company that Monson endorses.

    Trapani said her romantic relationship with Monson is over. "I'm done," she said.

    It was unclear Monday how Monson's new criminal charge will affect his ability to surrender to authorities in Washington.

    Monson, an Olympia native and Timberline High School graduate who was on the wrestling team at Oregon State University, left a job as a mental-health counselor to pursue mixed-martial arts fighting.

    In December, 2004, he won the Cagewarriors Fighting Championship heavyweight title in Sheffield, England by defeating Tengiz Tedoradze with a submission hold in the first found. On Dec. 13, 2008, he won a match against Rocco Rodriguez in the Mixed Fighting Alliance, “There Will Be Blood” event in Miami. Monson's fighting nickname is "The Snowman."

    Last week, Monson took responsibility for leaving graffiti at the State Capitol in Olympia on Nov. 26 to protest the Iraq War and economic injustice. Thurston County prosecutors charged Monson with first-degree malicious mischief for the graffiti after ESPN The Magazine published photos of Monson spraying graffiti on the Capitol on that date.

    After learning of the arrest warrant last week, Monson said in a phone interview that, "Every great movement in the United States, from civil rights, women's rights, the labor movement, has been the result of people standing up and breaking the law, refusing to stand at the back of the bus, refusing to stand aside when the government asks you to get off their property. And now, these people are seen as pioneers. But at the time, they were criminals, literally criminals. I’m not here to advocate myself; at some point you have to stand up."
