Former MMA fighter arrested again in Denison

By  | 

DENISON, Tex. -- A mixed martial arts enthusiast wanted out of Bryan County for failing to register as a sex offender was arrested Monday in Denison, Texas, by the Bryan County Sheriff’s Department and U.S. Marshals.

Patrick Smith, 44, of Durant was charged earlier this month for failing to register as a sex offender, but this charge goes back to March when Smith attempted to elude police for speeding.

It turns out Smith was convicted in 1999 in Colorado for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old.

Bryan County Sheriff Bill Sturch says Smith is currently being held at the Bryan County Jail. The case could soon be turned over to federal authorities.
