I was shocked and saddened to hear that Mask ( Charles Lewis Jr.) of TapouT passed away on March 11th, 2009, succumbing to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.  Even more upsetting is that the accident was apparently caused by a drunk driver, who of course, did NOT sustain any life threatening injuries. 

According to the article, the other driver was arrested on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.  He has already posted his $1mm bail, and has been released.  Niiiiice.

While I doubt that they will at any point, see this post, my thoughts and condolences are nontheless with the Tapout Family, and Mask's family and friends.

If you've ever seen the TapouT show, or are a fan of the UFC and MMA in general, you know that Mask was a hell of a guy, over the top and completely committed to supporting up and coming mixed martial artists.

He will be missed.
