On January 2nd Overeem was at Wynn Las Vegas and reportedly pushed or shoved a woman in the face, "causing her to stagger back." Overeem wasn't technically arrested and instead was summoned to court. Overeem is set to appear in court on Feb. 21, and if convicted, he faces a maximum of six months in county jail and a maximum $1,000 fine.
Overeem has retained Las Vegas defense attorney David Chesnoff for the case and maintains his innocence. Chesnoff released the following statement to WrestlingINC.com:
"I have advised Alistair not to comment on this matter, and that we will do our talking in court.
It should be noted that Alistair was not arrested, he was summoned to court. There are two sides
to this story and we intend 011 vigorously defending this as Alistair maintains his innocence."
