Donny Aaron, the husband of UFC flyweight Andrea Lee,
is facing charges of false imprisonment and domestic violence
battery stemming from an incident that occurred earlier this
was first to report the news of Aaron’s alleged attack on Lee,
which occurred on Aug. 4 and into the early morning hours of Aug. 5
in Shreveport, La. An arrest warrant is forthcoming for Aaron,
according to a report from

A police report states that officers responded to a domestic
incident involving a married couple of five years who have one
child together. There was a weapon used in the alleged attack, and
Lee suffered a minor injury, but no contact was made with the

MMA fighter Andy Nguyen,
who lives with Lee and Aaron, offered a more vivid description in a
witness statement to the police that was obtained by
Nguyen claimed that Aaron attempted to burn Lee with a cigarette
and choked her. She added that Aaron has hit Lee in the past and
that the domestic violence has “been going on for years.”

Nguyen’s full statement is as follows:

I’m in the bedroom, I’m trying to sleep, in their house. I can
hear them complaining about how Mighty Mouse got robbed. Now the
fights were done. I hear Donny yelling down. I sat up in the bed
and I’m like ‘what the hell is going on?’ I get a text message from
Donny’s mom asking if she needed to come over there. I was like
‘no.’ Then I hear more yelling, he’s cussing her out. So I opened
my door and she (Andrea) runs into her daughter’s room. Donny is
trying to burn a cigarette on her arm and her body. She’s yelling
to stop trying to burn her. Donny’s dad is the only one helping me.
His dad is like 70 or 80 years old. There’s another guy named
Kendrick there who is this big strong guy, who wouldn’t get out of
his room to help me. He put on his headphones and was like ‘this
happens all the time.’ He just tuned it out.

“At the time I was not in shock that it was happening, I was just
panicking. I ran back into my room and text his mom and said ‘ I do
not want to call the cops. Can you come here?’ This was at about
1:30 a.m. (now August 5). I fell back asleep. I wake up at 4:30
a.m. I still here Donny. At 4:30 his mom and dad had left. I turn
on my lights and open door so Donny knows I’m awake. Usually he
does crazy stuff behind closed doors. I went to the kitchen. I hear
them bickering. Then it got quiet. I thought maybe they were done.
Then all of a sudden I heard a grunt and the dog was in the kennel
and started barking. I can hear her saying “stop, stop.” I opened
up the door and was like “Donny, leave her alone.” He looked like
he was lost. He hadn’t slept in two days. He was drinking for two
f—-ing days straight. I don’t know what he is on. I’m backing up as
he is coming towards me. Andrea was buttoning up her shorts and she
was barefoot and ran out the back door.

“Then Donny was yelling, “she’s been cheating on me for three
f—-ing years.” I was like “no she hasn’t. You’ve been thinking she
has. She hasn’t done anything.” Then he saw her running and he was
like “oh, no you’re not” and went after her. She’s sprinting. It’s
5:30 a.m. I put on my gym clothes to chase after if I had to. Donny
goes back in the house and he’s like “I did it again, I did it
again.” I was like ‘what did you do? Did you kill her?’ because he
has killed someone before. I didn’t know if he grabbed a rock and
banged her head. I was scared to walk outside. He was like no ‘I
made her run barefoot again.’ I told him to give me the keys to the
jeep and he refused because he thought she would think it is him
and would not stop.

I knew there was no gas in the jeep because I drove it home last
because Donny was drunk at the bar. He finally gives me the keys
and the sun is coming up. I drove to the gas station. I jumped out
and called the cops from the gas station. I told them that my best
friend is getting hurt from her husband. Gave name and address and
like six cops showed up. She had Uber’d to a hotel. I met her at
the hotel and I gave her all her belongings and then the cops came
over to the hotel and they did the interrogation or investigation
or whatever.

I was not there at the house when the cops came but Donny saw the
cop cars coming and he ran out the house with his dad and he has
been gone ever since.

It’s f—-ed up because Donny used to be a cop. He’s f—-ed up in the
head. He was making her do things to try and fake evidence that she
was cheating. He was trying to get her to pull her pants off and
take pictures to send to a guy so it looked like she sent it. He’s
f—-ed up in the head.

They had been arguing all week. She couldn’t train because he kept
her home. He wouldn’t let her leave. I didn’t call the cops until
it got physical and I couldn’t do nothing anymore.

He was trying to choke her, but she was defending herself well. She
didn’t get beat up bad. The police did take pictures of marks on
her neck. Wasn’t bad this time. No black eyes or anything but he
has hit her before. I just wasn’t there. He was my coach and my
friend. This was the first time this was in presence and I was not
going to let this fly.

The domestic violence has been going on for years. I just never saw
it. Here’s another the thing. The UFC and many other people offered
Donny FREE tattoo cover up and he still never did it. You see
online, the small swastika on his elbow. I have a bigger picture of
a bigger tattoo on the shoulder that nobody knows about. All he had
to do was cover the little one but he didn’t. I would have done it
for my wife to save her career but he didn’t. This is s—-y. It’s
not Andrea’s fault. She is sweet and kind and she forgave him all
the time. This time, this is it.

Aaron recently
came under scrutiny
after it was revealed that he had Nazi
tattoos on both arms. Aaron apologized for the images, adding that
they were scars from a “dark time” in his past when he was
imprisoned. However, he added the coverups or laser removal were
not viable options for him. Lee defended her husband, who is also
her trainer.

“When I met Donny, I asked him about the tattoos because I was
curious as well and he told me his story and he was talking about
how he changed,” Lee said on the
Slip ’n Dip
podcast. “I even asked him why wouldn’t he cover
them up? I felt the same way. Maybe you should cover them up but he
says that it looks terrible already and it would just make it
worse. I don’t know. I can’t make him do it. I can’t make him throw
something on there.”

Aaron, who is also a former police officer and fighter, has a dark
past beyond his ink. In 2009, he was
found guilty and convicted of negligent homicide
after shooting
Ronald Jamison seven times and killing in a confrontation outside
his home. While awaiting trial for that incident, Aaron was
arrested for allegedly
punching his ex-wife’s fiance
in the face at the Louisiana
Boardwalk. This past February, Aaron was
arrested for possession of marijuana
by the Caddo-Shreveport
Narcotics Unit.

The 29-year-old Lee is a promising talent in the UFC’s flyweight
division. She made her Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 129, where
she outpointed Veronica
to increase her overall winning streak to five. The
fighter known as “KGB” is 9-2 over the course of a pro career that
began in 2014.
