Former Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial artist Josh Grispi has been indicted on a host of charges, the Plymouth district attorney’s office said.
Grispi, who has a tattoo reading “Break jaws not hearts,” allegedly beat his wife and sicced his dog on her in Middleborough on Aug. 4. He was arrested that day — his second arrest in four days — and he is already being held on $200,000 cash bail, prosecutors said Thursday in a statement.
The list of charges on which Grispi has been indicted includes charges from that day as well as a number of other charges that date from July 1 to Aug. 18.
The charges include animal cruelty and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon — a dog — on various days from July 1 to July 31.
The charges also include six counts of witness intimidation, from Aug. 8 to 18. During that same period, he allegedly also committed two counts of tampering with a record for use in an official proceeding, and one count of attempting to procure another to commit perjury.
District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz’s office said it would release no further information and have no further comment.
