One time Rizin fighter and BKFC fighter Sheena “Puma Starr” Brandenburg was recently arrested in connection with an August 2020 hit and run incident that left one person dead.

9&10 News reports that Brandenburg was recently arrested in Elsberry, Missouri, despite the fact that the arrest warrant was issued in October of 2020. The deadly hit and run took place in Clark County, Michigan and it was the state of Michigan that issued the warrant.

Brandenburg has already been transferred to the Clark County Jail in Michigan, with the fighter being charged with one count of reckless driving causing death and one count failure to stop at scene accident resulting in serious impairment or death.

A bond has been set for Brandenburg, with that bond totalling $250,000.

Reports state that the incident took place on August 1 of 2020 at approximately 1am, as a motorcyclist by the name of Troy Lambert was thought to be the victim of a single vehicle accident. However, a further investigation conducted by the Michigan State Police would lead to the revelation that Lambert was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Brandenburg and Brandenburg did not attempt to help Lambert in any way following the accident. Lambert, who was 56 years old, would be taken to the Munson Hospital in Michigan, where he would pass away due to the injuries suffered in the accident.

It was also reported that Brandenburg and Lambert had left the same tavern before the deadly accident took place. Brandenburg had already left the state of Michigan before the state police had identified her as a suspect. The fighter had also been arrested in the past multiple times for such things as operating under the influence of liquor and operating while intoxicated.

Brandenburg has gone 0-3-0 as a pro MMA fighter and 0-8-0 as an amateur MMA fighter, while going 1-2-0 in Bare Knuckle FC. Brandenburg’s appearance at Rizin came in July of 2017, where she suffered a first round submission loss to Shinju Nozawa-Auclair.
