American Top Team-Another Scandal

Another American Top Team Scandal . Am I surprised? Ultimately not, after the Drug D scandal anything is expected from this fighting team.

They claim to be the best Mixed Martial Arts team but their lack of scrutiny might top that. Not only their Owners have been jailed for Drug Dealing but now one of their Franchise fighters and Owner Din Thomas have been arrested for ” Illegal Cage Fighting”.

Here is the report:
Din Thomas Arrested in FloridaTuesday, October 30, 2007
by Sherdog.com Staff

Din Thomas (Pictures) was arrested Tuesday in Port St. Lucie, Florida, for running in his local gym what a police spokesman called “illegal cage fighting” matches.

The TCPalm reported that Thomas faces a felony prohibited-competitions charge after police entered his training studio and watched two men fighting in an “octagon-shaped ring” before roughly 150 spectators.

“At the end of the day, he was having a professional mixed martial arts match that was not licensed through us,” Sam Farkas, a spokesman for Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation, told the TCPalm. “It was a case of unlicensed activity.”

Sherdog.com confirmed the arrest with a representative of Thomas’ American Top Team camp. According to ATT, Thomas was in the process of posting a $10,000 bond to obtain his release from jail.
With so many good schools in the USA is hard to believe why someone would choose to join such schools, they lack morals, respect and most of all the Martial Arts principle.

Honor

Respect

Dignity

What kind of example would they be setting for young children?

Teenagers or Adults?

Drug Dealing and now illegal Cage Fighting?

Good luck choosing a school to train!!!
