Four people have been charged in connection with an illegal boxing event in southeast Oklahoma City, court records show.
Jodie Marie Dill, 30; Corey Adam Green, 30; Patrick Dustin Green, 31; and Kimberly Renee Thornton, 32, are each charged with knowingly promoting a nonsanctioned combative sports event, sale of beer without a license and knowingly engaging in activity for which a license is required.
All three crimes are misdemeanors.
The boxing event was Sept. 28 at 7800 S Indian Meridian. There was no entry charge, but undercover Oklahoma City police officers were able to buy VIP passes which entitled them to a ringside seat, an event T-shirt and raffle ticket and unlimited beer, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Oklahoma Athletic Commission inspectors also were told that they could compete in the fights if they signed a waiver and wore gloves and a mouthpiece. The equipment, which was used in a prior event, would be provided to the fighters, the affidavit states.
There was no entry fee or winning purse for the fighters at the event.
Patrick Green told police that he started the boxing events, but brother Corey Green organized the Sept. 28 event, including the alcohol sales, records show.
Corey Green's girlfriend, Kimberly Thornton, told officers that she was selling raffle tickets and VIP passes and had purchased alcohol for the event from a liquor store near her home, according to the affidavit.
Dill told police that she was responsible for selling VIP passes and raffle tickets at the event, the affidavit states.
