Joe Rogan offered strong words of support for former two-time Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, who was arrested in February after attempting to shoot a man accused of molesting a child in his family member, according to a report.
“I mean, my only wish is that he did it with his hands,” famed podcaster Rogan said during his show this week. “My only wish is that he just ran the car off the road, pulled that guy out of the f*cking car, and beat him to death. F*ck you.”
ESPN reported March 2:
According to court documents, Goularte, who was not injured in the incident, is accused of a lewd or lascivious act upon a child under age 14.
Goularte, 43, was released from custody on Feb. 25 without bail against the DA’s orders, according to the statement from the DA’s office. He was ordered to stay in home detention, remain 100 yards away from any child under 14 and wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, which he was allegedly on his way to obtaining when Velasquez gave chase.
The child, who is under 10, told an officer from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office on Feb. 24 that Goularte took him into the bathroom of a daycare center and touched the child’s genitals, per a court document obtained by ESPN. The child said Goularte said not to tell anyone what happened and that this had occurred “100 times.” In the court document, the child said he witnessed other kids go into the bathroom with Goularte as well.
