UFC heavyweight fighter suspected of assaulting ex-fiance

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Travis Browne is suspected of physically assaulting his former fiancé, according to Fox Sports on July 9.

Reports revealed a photo collage posted on Instagram that showed fitness model Jenna Renee Webb with some bruises on her face, upper arm, and knee. The Instagram account used reportedly is owned by Webb under the name “JennaReneeFit.” In a UFC 189 press conference, the company stated that they have been notified of the Instagram post, and they believe that any form of domestic violence is a violation of their conduct policy. The Hawaiian heavy weight fighter was prevented from joining a competition in Las Vegas while UFC is investigating the allegations against him.

N.C. man charged for multiple domestic violence incidents

A resident of Cary in North Carolina was recently charged after he was suspected of assaulting his former girlfriend, WRAL.com reported on June 14.

The incident happened at a market in Hudson on June 10. Reports said Isle of Palms Police filed several charges against 39-year-old Robert Howell after his ex-girlfriend Autumn Yee, who was apparently being held hostage, discreetly told a clerk to call police. Yee, who was trying to get away from Howell, reportedly sustained some scratches. A day following the incident, Howell’s former wife Sarah asked the court for a protective order for her and her children. Captain Randall Rhyne stated that they take “domestic violence very seriously” in Cary.

Grant given to domestic violence shelter in Yadkin County

The Sparrow’s House of Yadkin in Yadkin County, North Carolina, a local emergency domestic violence shelter for women and children, has received a $40,000 grant from The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, TWC News reported on February 15.

The Sparrow’s House opened November 2014 and currently receives no state or federal funding due to its recent establishment. Sparrow’s House executive director Jennifer Bowman explained that the shelter is not yet eligible for government funding; it must have been open for a year and provided crisis hotline services during that time.

Z. Smith Reynolds program operator James Gore, for his part, said the foundation caters to providing monetary support to shelters of domestic violence in North Carolina, and the shelter is needed in that area of the state.

The shelter spends around $13,000 each month for its operation expenses, and grants like this keep it functioning.
