The charges against Kultar Singh Gill are piling up. Last month a video emerged of the retired mixed martial artist crashing his car into a police station while an unidentified woman hung out of the open passenger door.
According to Media in Canada Gill fled the scene of the crime and was arrested later. Now CTV reports that,
“Kultar Singh Gill is now facing four charges: one count of aggravated assault, one count of criminal negligence causing bodily harm, and two counts of failure to stop after an accident.”
Video: Kultar Singh Gill, the head coach at Abbotsford Gym, was charged in connection with a disturbing incident in Aldergrove, B.C. on Sunday night when an out-of-control car plowed into the Aldergrove Community Police Station.

The charges stem from incidents in two separate locations. The video being circulated on social media shows the second of them, in which a man alleged to be Gill can be seen crashing his car into a community police station.
Apparently the victim is entitled to anonymity because she is in a relationship with Gill. He spent at least two weeks in custody after being arrested on October 29th, a bail hearing was set for November 15th and it isn’t clear what the outcome was.
According to Canadian police Gill fled on foot but was arrested nearby and taken into custody. Gill was born and raised in Canada but has roots in India.
He retired from MMA in 2019 with a 10-8 record and is the owner of the Mamba Gym in Abbotsford. According to reports in local media that has been closed until further notice following the car crash.

Gill was born in Canada but spent much of his career competing in Asia. He is of Indian descent and won two fights out of two for Super Fight League towards the end of his career.
The 44 year old fought numerous times in Japan facing the likes of Joachim Hansen, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Hideo Tokoro, Kazuyuki Miyata, Caol Uno and Hideo Tokoro. He also competed a couple of times in kickboxing an entered the 2008 K-1 Max Tournament, losing to Buakaw Banchamek.
These days he is better known as a gym owner and promoter. His Mamba Fight League show has put on two events so far this year featuring a mixture of MMA, kickboxing and boxing bouts.
If convicted on the aggravated assault charge Gil faces up to 14 years in prison. ‘The Black Mamba’ has had a dramatic fall from grace and his next battle will be in a Canadian courtroom.
