Leavitt Son Found at S.L. Fight Club

SALT LAKE CITY?Gov. Mike Leavitt’s 18-year-old son Chase has been charged for participating in a fight club at a Mormon chapel.

Chase Leavitt was charged Monday with battery, plus disturbing the peace and trespass.

City prosecutor Simarjit Gill said Tuesday that organizers had keys to church meeting house but did not have permission to stage the Dec. 14 fight in a gymnasium. It drew 25 to 75 teens who paid admission to watch.

Leavitt was charged because he was the only adult shown on a seized videotape throwing a punch at a minor. Both were wearing boxing gloves.

If convicted of the charges, Chase Leavitt could face fines of $1,000 and up to six months in jail.
