Be scared, homie: Brett Rogers issued restraining order for frightening his neighbors

Fear and loathing in Las Vegas Dakota County.

Brandi Luong doesn't like former Strikeforce heavyweight contender Brett Rogers. Not because he allegedly (cough) beat the crap out of his wife on his front lawn, but because she sued the "Grim" family after their dog allegedly (cough, cough) bit her son.

Rogers and his wife, Tiuana, according to the complaint, weren't down with that and now harass and frighten her on a regular basis.

MMA Weekly has the report:

A neighbor named Brandi Luong filed the paperwork with the Dakota County Sherriff's office claiming Rogers and his family routinely harass and frighten them because of a pending lawsuit also filed against the Rogers' family.

The lawsuit stems from a dog bite incident in which allegedly Rogers' family dog bit the neighbor's son. Because of the pending lawsuit, the neighbor claims in the harassment order filed that Rogers and his family routinely walk the dog ‘purposefully' by their house, while also yelling profanity at the neighbor from their adjourning courtyard.

She may not need the restraining order much longer, depending on whether or not Rogers does time for his felony domestic violence arrest back on June 30.

The former tire mechanic was charged with third-degree assault and misdemeanor endangerment of a child after (yes, allegedly) smacking around his wife outside their Minnesota home. And by "smacking around" I mean she was (reportedly) strangled, punched repeatedly in the head and face and lost a tooth.

Rogers, who was released from the promotion in the wake of his arrest, was last seen getting bounced from the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Tournament by Josh Barnett back on June 18 in Dallas.

The loss dropped him to 1-3 in his last four bouts with all three of his defeats coming by way of submission or technical knockout.

"The Grim" is expected to face trial this September if a settlement is not reached.
