Cain Velasquez faces 10 charges after allegedly shooting at man who was accused of molesting his close relative



Former WWE/UFC star Cain Velasquez is facing 10 charges after being involved in a shooting earlier this week. 

TMZ Sports reports the charges include 1st degree attempted murder, multiple counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and shooting an occupied motor vehicle, among others.

According to court documents obtained by the media outlet, Cain followed a 43-year-old man named Harry Goularte, who was recently charged with 1 felony count of lewd and lascivious act for allegedly molesting Valesquez's close relative, along with his mom and stepdad from their home.

Velasquez rammed his truck into the vehicle that the man was in and then allegedly fired shots at the vehicle where he hit Goularte's stepfather.

After the cops were called, Velasquez allegedly left the scene before being pulled over and taken into custody without issue. The cops say they found a 40-caliber semi-automatic handgun in Cain's truck with 2-10 bullet magazines where 8 total bullets were missing from the mags.

If the former UFC Heavyweight Champion is found convicted then he faces decades in prison. Goularte was let out of jail under supervised release despite being charged.
