Kickboxing champion Badr Hari arrested

28th October 2010, Comments 0 comments


Former world champion kickboxer Badr Hari is being held in custody after being arrested on Wednesday for assaulting a doorman in Amsterdam.

The incident took place last February, when the kickboxer was refused entry to a nightclub because his clothing was not in line with the dress code. The doorman suffered a broken nose and eye socket.

A police investigation led to Dutch Moroccan Badr Hari. However as Mr Hari was in Morocco, the police were unable to trace him. They had been looking for him since June.

Hari is considered one of the world's best kickboxers and is famous in countries like Japan. Nevertheless he has been disqualified twice during important boxing galas for kicking his opponent while he was on the floor. After his second disqualification he announced he would be retiring from the sport temporarily.
