A warrant for the arrest of the estranged husband of UFC flyweight fighter Andrea Lee was issued late this morning by Shreveport Judge Pamela Lattier.
According to a report from ArkLaTex.com, Donny Aaron failed to appear for arraignment on charges of domestic battery abuse and false imprisonment this morning. His hearing was set for 9 a.m., and when Aaron did not show, the process was put into motion.
Last summer Aaron fled after news broke that police were called to his residence in Shreveport. The mixed martial arts trainer allegedly choked Lee and tried to burn her with a cigarette during a late night altercation.
According to a witness and roommate, the attack occurred on Saturday, August 4, following the UFC 227 pay-per-view the couple was watching together.
He evaded law enforcement officials for nine months before being taken in, in Upshur County, Texas, for speeding in a school zone. He was arrested after officers found marijuana in his possession.
When police discovered that Aaron was wanted for domestic abuse, he was extradited to Shreveport and booked into the Shreveport City Jail on May 29, 2019. He bonded out of jail the next day and given a court date of 9 a.m. July 2, 2019.
Aaron is a former Greenwood Police officer who was convicted of negligent homicide with a firearm back in 2009. Aaron shot an unarmed man multiple times in February of 2005 outside his home A Caddo Parish Jury convicted Aaron of negligent homicide in July 2009, and he subsequently was sentenced to five years in prison.
Andrea fought just two weeks ago at UFC Greenville, earning a unanimous decision win over Montana De La Rosa.
Below are the initial offense reports from last summer’s incidents.
