Mixed martial arts veteran Mike Whitehead has been arrested and charged with three felonies including sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, and open and gross lewdness, according to a release from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued today.
If convicted, each charge carries a minimum of one year in prison, according to Barbara Morgan, a Public Information Officer with the LVPD.
Whitehead turned himself into the LVPD's Investigative Services Division on Wednesday. Detectives arrested him after he declined to answer questions about a sexual assault of an adult female that he was allegedly involved in this past Saturday, Morgan said.
Whitehead is currently being held at the Clark County Detention Center. His bail has not been set.
Morgan said additional charges related to a marijuana growing operation discovered at Whitehead's residence are pending. Detect
