We now have dramatic cell phone video allegedly showing former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez involved in a high-speed chase after he allegedly shot a man inside of a pickup truck.
The 39-year-old is now facing an attempted murder charge, as well as multiple counts of assault with a gun and deadly weapon, in connection with the roadside encounter that took place Monday.
According to the San Jose Police Department’s “statement of facts,” Velasquez followed the parents of 43-year-old Harry Goularte from their home as they were picking up Goularte, who last week was arrested and charged with molesting a close underage relative of Velasquez, but was out on bail.
After the parents picked up Goularte in their Chevy Silverado, Velasquez continued following them and shot into the vehicle. Velasquez “was able to close the distance and ram the Silverado with his Ford” at in intersection before firing several shots with a .40 caliber pistol, according to the police report.
Velasquez did not hit his target as he struck Goularte’s stepfather. Goularte is facing a felony count of a lewd and lascivious act with a child under the age of 14.
Velasquez remains in custody at the Santa Clara County main jail. If convicted of attempted murder, Velasquez faces a minimum of 20 years and up to life in prison. He faces additional time if found guilty of other counts.
