    ESPN story leads to vandalism charge for veteran fighter Jeff Monson

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Jan 15, 2009 at 10:30 am ET
    [​IMG] \A November 2008 photo taken by ESPN The Magazine has led to a graffiti charge for veteran fighter and former top UFC heavyweight contender Jeff Monson.

    A warrant has been issued for the 37-year-old political activist after the magazine snapped an image of Monson allegedly tagging Washington state's Capitol with an anarchy symbol.

    Monson faces up to 10 years in prison and or a $20,000 fine if convicted of the first-degree malicious mischief charge.

    The warrant was issued on Wednesday, according to The Olympian, which also reported a $19,000 cleaning bill for the spray-painted symbol.

    ESPN The Magazine ran a story on Monson and his involvement in the Olympia anarchist movement in its Dec. 29 edition. The piece included a picture of him holding a spray-paint can, and a photo caption identified Monson as the person responsible for creating the mark.

    MMAjunkie.com could not immediately reach Monson, who told the newspaper the graffiti was a sign of protest for the war in Iraq and worldwide economic inequality. He said he planned to contact local authorities about the charge.

    Moson (27-8) last competed professionally in December when he defeated former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez via unanimous decision. During an 11-year career, the former Oregon State wrestler has fought for many of the world's top promotions, including the UFC, PRIDE and World Victory Road.

    jesus, that's kind of a hefty fine for tagging.

    is there any proof it was on the Capital?

    but :bowdown: for voicing your opinion

    He is alluding to your anti-gov statement, it's humorous because it's ironic that Monson got in trouble for doing it.

    20 years is way excessive, but Monson is a fucking nutjob either way.

    I only see 10 years in the article, but either way it's extremely excessive for something that is almost impossible to prove.

    Can they prove that is the can that the paint came from? Or that it is indeed the building?

    I think it's pretty hefty price for that though.

    That wasn't very wise. He should voice his opinions...Not spray them on the capitol. More people would probably listen to a well spoken youtube blog than a picture of an anarchy sign randomly placed in the cap.

    I read an article that said he already admitted to it and said he would do it again.
