Jorge Masvidal’s father arrested on second degree attempted murder charges

Jorge Masvidals’ father, Jorge Masvidal Sr., was arrested early Friday morning after a shooting at his son’s home.  The recently retired UFC fight was not home or involved in the incident law enforcement officials state.

The elder Masvidal has been booked on second-degree attempted murder charges with a deadly weapon/firearm after one victim was shot in the upper extremities before being taken to a local hospital for treatment but was in stable condition.

Masvial Sr., 67, was booked into jail at 1:33 a.m. on May 5 and he remains in holding at this time, according to online records.

Luis Leoncini is the name of the victim that was identified. He was shot in both arms and was treated for his injuries.

Masvidal Sr. was arrested without incident and police later found a .38 caliber revolver inside a kitchen cabinet in the home, according to reports.

Second-degree attempted murder charges in Florida come with a potential prison sentence of up to 15 years in prison as well as fines up to $10,000

Jorge Masvidal Jr. will hold Florida state’s first-ever bareknuckle MMA event tonight under his promotion’s banner, Gamebred BareKnuckle MMA. The event will be headlined by a matchup between heavyweights Roy Nelson and Dillon Cleckler.
