Orange County, CA (CNS) - Mixed martial arts fighter Joe Son has been arrested on Tuesday on gang rape charges that happened almost 18 years ago.
Real name Joseph Hyungmin Son, the UFC veteran was already in custody for unrelated vandalism charges when he was linked to the 1990 Christmas Eve gang rape crime.

He apparently gave a DNA sample to the authorities following a probation violation, inadvertently making his connection to the past.

As per TMZ, Son was linked to the 1990 crime, where a woman was pistol-whipped, raped, sodomized, forced to copulate with the suspects repeatedly, threatened, blind-folded and eventually, released naked.

Son, 39, has been charged with numerous crimes, including five felony counts of rape, two felony counts of forcible sodomy, two felony counts of sodomy in concert by force, seven felony counts of forcible oral copulations, and one felony count of sexual penetration by foreign object by force.

If found guilty, Son will face a maximum sentence of 275 years to life imprisonment. His bail is set at $1 million.

Another suspect linked to the crime is still at large.

Son had a part in Mike Myers' 1997 comedy "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" as Random Task

and most of us know him for repeatedly getting punched in the balls by Keith Hackney at UFC 4

maybe Hackney subconsciously knew that he was fighting a rapist, hence the ballz-fu.

What a piece of ****.

Innocent until proven guilty.

Except in the eyes of the prosecution & the media.

Front page please.

I'd hesitate to call this guy a mixed martial artist when you look at his record. Blocking punches with your nuts isn't exactly an art form.

didn't he used to carry a cross on his shoulders like kimo and use the what he called joesando as his "style"? this does not seem very jesus like.

Ha! I always knew that there was something bad about Son, with all his underhanded ways and such. Remember what him and Kimo did after Royce forfeited in the semi-finals?

He carried a cross with some of Kimo's entrances. I think the art was "Joe Son Do".

Well I did say "maybe" and regardless of guilty or no, he's still a piece of ****.

"Who rapes his shoe? I’m mean honestly."

And I always viewed that match as Keith being a douchebag for actually punching a dude in the pills...now I wish every time I watched it, it was happening again.

If guilty&convicted, the state should hire Hackney to repeat his performance. It would be tax dollars well spent, unlike the rest of the Ca. budget.
