Hearing in Whiskey Tip homicide postponed, findings of Eddie Alvarez warrant still not public

A judge has moved a preliminary hearing to September in the case of two men who are accused in a 2021 fatal shooting that took place outside a Santa Rosa night club. That change-up in this case, which is nearing its one-year anniversary, not only delays the court proceedings, it also delays possible public insight into a search warrant served on a Santa Rosa City Council member.

Warrant Hearing Delayed Regarding Santa Rosa Vice Mayor Eddie Alvarez

A hearing about whether a search warrant served on Santa Rosa Vice Mayor Eddie Alvarez will be unsealed has been delayed. The Press Democrat wants access to the search warrant served after Alvarez left a council meeting on January 11th. It’s connected with a deadly shooting outside the Whiskey Tip Bar last September. Alvarez was at the bar earlier in the night, but left before shots were fired. Santa Rosa police say he isn’t a suspect, but on social media, Alvarez says police are trying to accuse him of “orchestrating a murder” without evidence. Alvarez says he has never met the two men charged with the murder. Yesterday, a judge postponed the hearing to May 10th, following an objection by a defense attorney representing one of the murder suspects.

SRPD Opposes Unsealing of Search Warrant on Councilman Eddie Alvarez

The Santa Rosa Police Department opposes a motion to unseal a search warrant its officers served on City Councilman Eddie Alvarez after he left a council meeting in January. The motion was filed by the Press Democrat newspaper last month. The SRPD says the warrant is connected with an ongoing investigation and should stay sealed until the investigation is finished. Police seized three cellphones from Alvarez, including one that was given to him by the city, in connection with a deadly shooting outside a bar in the southwest part of town. Alvarez is not a suspect in the shooting. He was at the bar but left before the gunfire.

City Councilman Eddie Alvarez Served Search Warrant in Connection with Shooting

A Santa Rosa City councilman has been served a search warrant in connection to a shooting case last fall. The Press Democrat reports that Councilman Eddie Alvarez was served the warrant after a council meeting in January this year where police seized three phones, including one that was issued by the city. The warrant is related to a shooting outside a Roseland bar last September where Alvarez reportedly was in attendance. However, Alvarez had left the bar prior to the shooting and police have stated he is not a suspect. SRPD declined to comment on why the warrant was served. Fogatia Fuiava and Ednie Afamasaga have been charged with the murder of Kenneth McDaniel stemming from that shooting and will face preliminary hearings in June.

Islam Makhachev responds after former UFC champ Eddie Alvarez says Justin Gaethje getting the next lightweight title shot “is only right”

Islam Makhachev responded after former UFC champ Eddie Alvarez said Justin Gaethje getting the next lightweight title shot “is only right.”. Makhachev recently defeated Dan Hooker at UFC 267 to improve to 10-1 overall in the UFC with his current nine-fight win streak. Makhachev is clearly one of the best lightweight fighters in the world, and he is hoping to get the next title shot at 155lbs against the winner of UFC 269’s Charles Oliveira vs. Dustin Poirier main event. However, after Gaethje defeated Michael Chandler at UFC 268 in a “Fight of the Year” candidate last weekend, there seems to be more support for Gaethje getting the next title shot. One of those supporters is his former UFC rival Alvarez, who took to his social media to stump for him.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Eddie Alvarez

The sun may be starting to set on Eddie Alvarez and his stellar career. Alvarez, who ranks as one of the greatest lightweights of all-time, signed with One Championship as a big-ticket free agent in 2018 after reaching the peak of his profession in Bellator MMA and the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Not much has gone according to plan since. Having recorded just one win through four appearances with the Singapore-based company, the 37-year-old Alvarez has hit a bump in the road with which he must be wholly unfamiliar. Whether or not “The Underground King” can recapture some of his past magic remains to be seen.

ONE champion Christian Lee still ‘sitting here waiting’ for Eddie Alvarez to get a win so they can finally fight

In a very short period of time, ONE Championship lightweight champion Christian Lee has nearly wiped out every top contender the division has to offer him. After he won the title with a second-round TKO over Shinya Aoki in 2019, Lee dispatched highly touted Dagestani prospect Saygid “Dagi” Arslanaliev and then needed less than four minutes to take out both Iuri Lapicus and Timofey Nastyukhin in consecutive fights.
