“[Matt] pulled his vehicle crossways in the road causing my son to have to bring the tractor quickly to a stop. Matt approached the tractor, and when my son got out of the tractor to ask his uncle what he needed, Matt physically assaulted my 15-year-old son by grabbing him and shaking him, all the while telling him that it’s his (expletive) tractor.”
Mark added that some nearby woman came to aid his son and Matt left the scene immediately.
Mark is also claiming that his brother Matt later tried to burn the tractor with gasoline.
“While I am not sure if my brother’s intent was to burn the tractor, merely running a diesel engine with gasoline in the tank will destroy the engine,” Mark wrote. “I called my wife Emily and asked her to keep my brother at our house until I got there.
“When I got home, I met my brother in my driveway. While he denied everything, he had two empty five-gallon buckets in the back of his truck. The buckets smelled of gasoline. One of the buckets had the lid missing, and I later found the lid laying next to the tractor.”
Matt Hughes allegedly assaulted his wife Audra several times from 2017-2018 and once threatened to shoot her last summer. In return, she filed a restraining order against a longtime wrestler. UFC legend has been ordered to stay 500-feet away from his wife after domestic violence allegation.
