'Mask' from TapouT killed in car crash

Props: Los Angeles Times

Quoteworthy:

"A bizarre car crash in Newport Beach involving two luxury cars early this morning left one person dead, a second injured, a third arrested for gross vehicular manslaughter and a fourth person was detained by police long enough to sober up. A Newport Beach Police Department officer allegedly witnessed the wreck and saw a red Ferrari and a white Porsche 'spinning out of control' on Jamboree Road between Bison Avenue and East Bluff Drive at 12:57 a.m., Newport Beach Lt. Craig Fox said. The Ferrari "hit the curb and then collided with a pole.' The Porsche came to a stop at the scene for a few seconds and then sped away, Fox said. 'It was terrible. It was extensive damage to the vehicle,' Fox said, adding that the Ferrari appeared to have split in half.... He said the investigation is ongoing but that police identified skid marks at the scene 'consistent with excessive speeding.'"

Mauro Ranallo -- Fight Network Radio host -- confirmed that the dead individual is indeed "Charles Lewis Jr. also known as Mask, the founder of multi-million dollar company, popular MMA clothing line and television show TapouT." Rest in peace.
