ONE Championship Fighter Chris Shaw beat someone who broke into his house with a hammer.
According to Daily Record, last year, Muay Thai fighter Shaw defended his house against a thief with a hammer that left him with a broken nose and blurred vision. The thief was named George Halliday, who is a known drug addict.
The Daily Record said Shaw was in bed when Halliday broke into his house. Halliday was trying to steal tools from Shaw’s van. Shaw then confronted the thief and chased him down the street before beating him.
Halliday would later admit to breaking into Shaw’s property.
While getting medical attention at the hospital, Halliday said: “I thought I was breaking into a garage, but it turns out it was a house and the guy battered me.”
On Friday, Shaw pleaded guilty to battering Halliday.
According to the Daily Record, “the court heard Shaw struck Halliday, causing him to fall to the ground, then hit him with the hammer, with the blow landing on Halliday’s arm. He then rained kicks and punches on the thief for about two minutes, leaving Halliday covered in blood and with an eye swollen shut. The police arrested Shaw, noting he had dried blood on his knuckles.”
Sentencing for Shaw will go down next week.
