Jeff Moss?? MMA "fighter" arrested

Anyone heard of this guy? Just read this article in Newsday, I can't find this guy in Sherdog and obviously never fought in the UFC. I'm sending an e-mail to the writer to try to get the MMA reference removed if possible.

Suspect in fatal crash killing prof posts bail

May 14, 2007, 10:52 PM EDT

A Glen Cove man posted $100,000 cash bail Monday following his arrest on a charge that he triggered a six-car pileup in Old Brookville that killed a former Connecticut college professor on her way to see her son graduate from C.W. Post.

Jeff B. Moss, 43, of 3 Danas Island Hwy., was charged with criminally negligent homicide in the death Saturday of Antonia Brancia, 60, of Mansfield Center, Conn., police said.

Moss, who couldn't be reached after posting bail, pleaded not guilty to the charge Sunday in First District Court in Hempstead.

His attorney, Matthew Dollinger, didn't return a message left at his Carle Place office Monday.

Police said investigators are awaiting the results of a blood test on Moss, but it doesn't appear he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Moss, who was injured in the crash, has had his license suspended at least six times since 2003, according to motor vehicle records.

In 2004, he was convicted of running a red light and driving without a license, the records show. Last year, he also was involved in an accident resulting in property damage, according to records.

Det. Sgt. Dennis Barry of Nassau's Homicide Squad said Moss is a mixed martial artist who competes in events like the Ultimate Fighting Championship, a series of televised competitions.

Police said Moss was driving a white 2006 Range Rover when he rammed into a row of stopped cars on Glen Cove Road at the intersection of Glen Head Road Saturday afternoon.

Brancia and her husband, Sjef van den Berg, 60, both former University of Connecticut professors, were in the first car struck by Moss.

Brancia was pronounced dead at the crash site, and van den Berg, who was driving the car, was taken to North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset with broken ribs, fractures in his back and a concussion.

He was in stable condition in the intensive care unit and faces surgery later in the week, family members have said.

Moss, who suffered head injuries in the crash, was treated and released from Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow Sunday.

He is scheduled to appear Wednesday in Nassau County Court.

Fighting is obviously just a hobby and not his profesion.
