One day after leading police on a manhunt that included shutdown close to a half dozen schools in the Hialeah area, a 29-year-old MMA fighter from the area found out he will be staying behind bars for the time being. John Chavez was in bond court Thursday morning where he faces two charges for aggravated assault and burglary. While he was given bond on those charges, a previous bond for a felony charge was revoked – which will keep Chavez locked up until trial. Chavez became agitated during the hearing, arguing with Judge Mindy Glazer to the point where she had his microphone cut off and officers escort him from the holding area. After reports of a domestic violence issue at his home, Hialeah Police attempted to capture Chavez – who reportedly has a history of mental illness as well as a criminal record – but he escaped onto the grounds of a local elementary school before being captured hours later outside a nearby home.
