Badr Hari cannot escape his violent past, even while partying it up in the Amsterdam ArenA with his celebrity girlfriend, Estelle Cruyff, in a VIP box. As we reported earlier, at a Dutch dance festival in Amsterdam, Badr Hari was present and in his VIP box a 38 year-old man was brutally assaulted, with his leg and face badly damaged.
It looks like the victim is multimillionaire Koen Everink, and that the damages to his person might be so severe that he might never be able to walk properly again. The police have not ruled out Badr's involvement in the assault yet, although he and his lawyer claim he is innocent. From the reports that we are hearing he will give a statement to the police either today or tomorrow and hopefully this can be cleared up.
Even if innocent, this is far from the first run-in Badr has had with the law over violent assaults, the most recent in 2010 that hindered Hari from participating in the K-1 World Grand Prix, which was won by current UFC Heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem.
Thanks to our good friend Simon Raedts for the report.
