Why Was Frank Shamrock in Prison? Anyone Know?

Just listened to the latest Beatdown. Ken Shamrock repeatedly referred to Frank's time in prison, without ever saying WHY he was in prison. I've heard this mentioned before, that he was in the pen, and I'm curious to know what he did time for.

By the way, I may be one of the few posters on here who actually LIKE Frank, even though I do think his ego can get a bit over-inflated. When he was in his prime no one could touch him and I'll always be interested in watching him fight, even though I think his best days are well behind him.

You got it all wrong... I bet he BOUGHT Big Bubba for a carton of Newports. Then he proceeded to put him in a "modified triangle choke"...

It was probably Juvie as Kenny said that it was before his dad adopted him. If thats the case it could be some gang or theft type charge although i am only speculating.

Not sure why you would think that. Arrest records, criminal trials and sentencing are a part of the public record. You can go to any courthouse and look them up (provided the trial was held in that municipality). Of course, if he was a juvenile when he was sentenced, then court may keep his identity from the public. But the way Ken was talking about, it sounded like he was in an adult prison, not a youth authority type thing. Anyway, Frank is a pro-athelete and public figure - his time in prison is natually going to be a topic of interest just like Aleksander Emelianenko's time in prison is/was.

But, judging from the responses so far - nobody around here knows why he went in.

Considering that their dad (who is DEFINITELY the COOLEST shamrock) adopted troubled youths he was probably in prison a long time ago
