Former K-1 kickboxing champion Badr Hari has been in legal trouble for a while and things are just getting worse. He's been in a Dutch jail for a while now and according to AD.nl (a major Dutch news site) is facing charges in 8 cases of violent assault including one for which he may be charged with Attempted Manslaughter, a crime that could mean a 10 year prison sentence.

Our own Fraser Coffeen detailed the incident for which Hari may be charged a couple of months back:

On July 9, Hari attended a party at the Amsterdam ArenA. Also at the party was Dutch millionaire businessman Koen Everink. At some point in the night, Everink was assaulted in his VIP box, badly beaten, with his ankle shattered to the point that he may never fully walk again.

Hari's name was quickly implicated in the case, though his exact involvement was unclear. After a period of police investigation that included Hari leaving the country and subsequently being named the prime suspect, the K-1 fighter came forward and admitted his guilt. According to Hari, yes, he had been directly involved in the attack and had struck Everink. With that admission of guilt, Hari was jailed, where he now awaits a court date.

Wasted talent in my opinion.

Hari is one of the best kickboxer's of all time and he always seems to be doing things that discredit him

Bummer. Is K-1 still coming to American TV? I know most of their talented fighters are gone but I'd still watch. If nothing else to see karate homo fix his hair between rounds.

I am in shock, I never realized he was in prison, and was preparring to get a chance to see him at the New Years K1 event. I guess that aint happening.

I agree with the fellow posters, Badr was the best K1 fighter I have ever seen. He is the only person to manhandle Overeem.
What a shame though, he was young and world of talent. At least he will be able to protect that ass in jail. lol

Great kickboxer! Too bad he pulled another jacka** move, hopefully he doesn't disappear....would K-1 have the same attitude that the UFC does for these kinds of situations? If so because he is such a big star he may be around to compete if he doesn't end up in prison.
