On January 14th 2009, Jeff Monson was charged with first-degree malicious mischief for vandalizing the Washington State Capitol by spray painting an anarchy symbol with the words ‘no poverty’ and ‘no war’ on two pillars. Just before he was arrested, Jeff Monson gave us one of the most bad-ass pictures of an dude named ‘The Snowman’, ever. A few months after this incident, Jeff Monson’s ex-girlfriend sent me a picture of him jumping in a bed, completely naked. Both events are completely unrelated, but it clearly shows that Monson could care less how your perception on cultural norms have been conditioned by a soulless society established on capitalism. That’s why I’m not surprised that Jeff Monson allegedly fought two cops in Russia. In fact, if Jeff Monson didn’t fight some authority figure in a foreign country then I would be surprised. According to Russia’s ‘RT,’ it appears that Monson got in a little altercation just before his M-1 bout with Fedor.
One of the LifeJournal users was shocked when he met Monson in the city’s Metro, which he decided to take in order to make the 40-minute trip to the Moscow outskirts, where he was to hold a master class the day before the fight. He was dressed in hooded top and wearing flip-flops. The temperature on that day was around zero degrees.
On one of the stations he noticed two policemen trying to calm down a drunken man. Their methods seemed too aggressive to the American and he rushed to calm down the policemen. Monson’s escort decided not to wait until the American, known for his penchant for anarchism, beat up the surprised law-enforcers and stopped the scuffle.
There’s nothing cool about beating up police officers, but when Jeff Monson does it to defend a drunk person on a Russian subway while wearing flip-flops in freezing temperatures, then it’s undeniably baller. [Source]
Update: Here’s a statement from Jeff Monson from his Twitter account.
