New video shows Dillon Danis being choked and restrained in restaurant

New, 35 comments

More video emerges showing Dillon Danis’ arrest in New Jersey.

Dillon Danis is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

The highly decorated grappler, and 2-0 MMA fighter, was recently arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after an incident that took place at the Beachcomber Bar and Grill in Seaside Heights N.J.

News of this incident broke when video surfaced showing Danis being dragged away from that location by police officers. A mugshot of Danis, seemingly related to this incident, was later revealed.

And now more footage of Danis has been released. A twitter user uploaded video purportedly showing Danis being choked on the ground by either a police officer or security staff.

The 45-second clip appears to show Danis being held in a rear-naked-choke type hold. Eventually Danis is turned onto his front and a police officer appears to start cuffing his hands behind his back.

Danis is due in court on October 19 to answer his single charge for disorderly conduct.
