According to [McCall's attorney George] Vargas:


In 2008, Ian was arrested for possession of prescription drugs without a prescription and paraphernalia. The paraphernalia was needles that he used to take the fluid out of his ears. Part of Ian’s punishment for that case was that he was to do 20 days of Cal Trans (physical labor).

The following year, Ian was having more troubles and he entered and completed a six-month residential drug treatment program at Nancy Clark’s The Recovery Center in Orange County. Ian completely turned his life around, began training hard and became the man he is today.

On June 14 of this year, Ian was pulled over for a traffic stop. He was given a ticket for PC14601 (driving on a suspended license). Ian’s license had been suspended for unpaid traffic and parking tickets.

The very next day, on June 15, Ian went to the Harbor Justice Center with his agent, and paid over $2,600 in fines. He mistakenly thought that the ticket from the previous day had been handled. A few weeks later, when the court date for that case came, Ian did not show and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Aug. 14, once again, Ian was stopped while driving home from the gym. At that time he was arrested for the two warrants: one for not completing the 20 days of Cal Trans work for the 2008 case, and the other for not showing up to court on the driving on a suspended license ticket that he had thought that he had handled.



Because McCall was on parole from previous charges and a warrant was issued in his name, the UFC flyweight must spend a mandatory time of 30 days in jail for his current arrest, according to his manager, Jason House of Iridium Sports.

McCall is scheduled for a Sept. 13 release date.

how could you not get this stuff figured out? Ian is a ufc fighter now, and in a weight class that if he loses his ufc job he will probably never be able to make that kind of money at 125lbs anywhere else. i am glad to see he has turned his life around but it sounds like he's still recovering from the life he had before.

Personally I think the fact that he has turned his life around should be weighed more heavily.

If the point of the criminal justice system is rehabilitation, Ian McCall is pretty much all set. Especially since the charges are drug related.

He's turned his life around and cleaned himself up, so leave the guy alone.

Sadly rehabilitation isn't the point of the criminal justice system. If it were we wouldnt have overcrowded prisons and such full of non-violent offenders.

Ya I know. I don't think there is an official policy that says, "criminal justice is for punishment" or "criminal justice is for rehabilitation", but we often behave as if the point was punishment first.

I was more or less trying to argue the way I think it SHOULD be.
