image for B.J. Penn accused of threatening farmer with machete; police investigation ongoing

A public records request revealed Penn also is under an active police investigation after he allegedly threatened a taro farmer with a machete in a dispute over trespassing.

In January 2018, police released an all-points bulletin stating that Penn, 40, was wanted by police.

Penn was accused of first-degree terroristic threatening, a Class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Penn family attorney Gary Levitt expressed shock when contacted by MMA Junkie about the allegation, which was reported Jan. 19, 2018.

But Levitt strenuously denied any violent behavior and said Penn hasn’t been contacted by police.

“B.J. said he’s never given a statement to the police; they haven’t told him he’s got a terroristic threatening charge, or there are charges pending,” Levitt said.

Penn is scheduled to face Clay Guida at UFC 237 on May 11 in Rio de Janeiro. »

Results also suggest that new and persistent users are less likely to be overweight or obese, overall. »

The FDA issued the blunt advice: “Consumers who have MMS should stop using it immediately and throw it away.”.

He had sold MMS through a website called Project GreenLife, having obtained sodium chlorite fraudulently by creating a phony “water purification” business. »
