Dana White Bounty Leads To Break-In Suspect Being Arrested

A thug who attempted to break into Dana White’s vacation home in Maine quickly regretted it when the UFC president showed video footage of the incident to his 8 million Instagram followers and put a bounty on the criminal’s head.

“This (expletive) just tried to kick [in] my front door in Levant, Maine,” White wrote in his Instagram stories on Monday. “I will [pay] 2500 dollars to the first person to let the police know who he is.”

Footage from White’s doorbell camera shows the bearded perpetrator throw several front kicks at the door, before losing balance and falling down some steps behind him. He then spots the camera and tries to rip it out before running off into the night.

He didn’t get away with it though as not long after White’s post on Instagram it emerged that a suspect was in custody.

“Thanks to Law Enforcement in Levant!!” White wrote. “Appreciate u guys. Thanks for everyone that called and helped.”

White is not the first person in the UFC to have his home targeted by troublemakers in recent years, with Anthony Smith having been forced to fight with an intruder who broke into home at 4am in the morning until police arrived, while Jon Jones wielded a shotgun when he chased a car thief off his property in the middle of the night.
