A 19-year-old college student filed a lawsuit against UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping on Monday, alleging that the fighter physically assaulted him at a local Anaheim gym in July.

The complaint, filed by Antonio Georgakopoulous, stated that the teenager was at a 24-Hour Fitness working out with a friend on July 31, when the alleged incident took place. Georgakopoulous claimed that when he picked up a set of nearby weights Bisping began shouting at him that he was already using those weights. He called Georgakopoulous names such as “idiot,” and “you little punk,” and proclaimed, “You don’t know who I am!” before choking him for a few seconds which caused him to believe he was going to lose consciousness.

A larger man at the gym reportedly intervened trying to get the situation under control. According to the complaint Bisping then requested they take the scuffle outside, but employees of the gym arrived and diffused the dispute.

A news release from the Placer County sheriff’s department stated that on Sunday evening a woman called for assistance reporting that a man had violently assaulted her and threatened to burn down her house. Upon arrival the deputies located the woman and accompanied her to a safe place. 27-year-old Christopher Williams was determined to be the alleged perpetrator, but his whereabouts were not immediately discovered.

The deputies set up a perimeter surrounding the residence and made efforts to get Williams to surrender. When several announcement attempts were met with no response they broke open the door of the home and were unsuccessful at locating Williams inside. A California Highway Patrol aerial search of the property and dwelling using heat imagery also failed to reveal his location. Deputies then sent a sheriff’s K-9 into the crawl space under the house to try to find Williams.

K-9 Officer Eros discovered Williams in the crawl space and proceeded to bite him on the arm in an attempt to subdue him. The sheriff’s office alleged that “Williams then grabbed Eros by the collar, held his face, and lifted him off the ground, choking him.” Deputies were successful in their attempt to get Williams to free Eros, and the dog was treated for minor injuries.
