    Default Bellator tournament winner Daniel Straus explains his side of March arrest on drug ch

    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/8/12/46...-side-of-march



    "Basically what happened was I was at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people. I was driving, there was two other people in my car. We got pulled over. There was stuff in my car and whatnot but it wasn't like it was mine or I had it on me and once we got pulled over, we got popped in my car that I was driving so I went to jail for it. It wasn't like I was walking around or driving around with drugs on me or like I was doing drugs or selling drugs or anything like that.

    To have the media put it out there like that's what it was, it really frustrated me because no one ever came to me and asked me what my side was. No one ever mentioned the fact that there were other people in my car. I'm the only one that had the name so I'm the only one that went to jail. It really bugged me. That's what bugged me, it made people put me in a certain light and that's just not what it is.

    How people look at me really doesn't bother me period. If you're gonna be a fan of mine, you're gonna be a fan of mine regardless. If you're not, you're not. I'm still gonna wake up in the morning and I'm still gonna go to bed at night. it did make me concerned about how people see me but I definitely always wanted to get my side and my view out there because I had family and friends calling me going, "Oh my God, you're down there doing this and you're partying!"

    Man, I've lived down here so long and I couldn't even tell you where the closest bar is. Definitely not how the media put it out there. It was a bad situation, being in the wrong place at the wrong time like I said. I learned form that. I'm not gonna sit up here and say, "Oh, I'm completely innocent," because I shouldn't have been with certain people, but that's what it is. With that, I picked up the ball and kept on moving with my life. I'm not still pissed about it or stuff like that. Somebody else saying things isn't gonna hold me back from what I'm getting to.

    For the younger generation that do look up to me, I apologize. Being put in that type of spotlight does hurt a little bit. I'm just gonna keep moving forward. My next step is to win the world title. That was my dream before this and it'll be my dream after it."

    Hope he gets his legal situation cleared up ASAP. I was looking forward to seeing him fight Chandler.

    Right on. I forgot to clarify something: When I said Strauss was 155 lbs, I was including the 10 lbs of drugs he got caught with at that traffic stop.

    Mean old media reporting that he was out and got arrested with a suspended license, about an ounce of weed, ecstasy and some paraphernalia.

    "The only thing I did wrong was drive the car."- Full of dope, morons, and with my suspended license.
