Oh, this is awkward.
Enter his name and it's a mess: various petty charges, DUI, driving while license suspended for DUI, failure to appear. This last one is fairly bad; you need to show up for your court dates.
These offenses are distributed over a few years, and their number and character suggests a man in a tailspin. No felonies at this point, but I think that may be the coming thing if he doesn't change his ways.
I don't feel a lot of confidence in his unsupported word.

I found another previous student of Peter Reniks and am contacting him to attempt to get some contact info for Mr. Renik to see if I can verify Marc Zee's training with him.

Just sent the following to the Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Association:
Mr. Biggs, Mr. Salazar,
My name is --- and I am trying to get in contact with a Mr. Peter Renik. I am a member of Bullshido.net a martial arts consumer advocacy website. We are currently conducting an investigation into Mr. Marc Zee who is claiming to have received a Judo black belt from Mr. Renik. As part of Bullshido standard procedure we are trying to verify if this rank was in fact awarded by Mr. Renik.
I found mention of Mr. Renik on your 2009 High-Power match results page. If by any chance either of you could pas this message on to Mr. Renik, or have him contact me directly it would be very appreciated.
