Motocross Champ's Bad Week Gets Worse

2/12/2009 4:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brian DeeganMotocross legend Brian Deegan was arrested for an alleged bar brawl on Saturday ... the same day his best friend sustained injuries in a bike crash that would later take his life.

Deegan was arrested for suspicion of assault after a throwdown at the iLounge bar in Orange County, where he allegedly sliced open a patron's face by hitting him with a glass.

The same day, Brian's best friend, Jeremy Lusk, sustained major injuries during a botched back flip at a freestyle motocross event in Costa Rica. Lusk never regained consciousness after the wreck -- and passed away on Tuesday.

Wow. There is quite a few Deegan haters. Mostly from the "wanna-be" but will "Never-be" bro's, I'm sure. By the way, with both events happening the same evening, I'm pretty sure Brian had no idea what had happened to Jeremy as of then. Idiots.

How sad that people want to be jerks when this man just lost a really good friend. Thank god that Jeremy was a born again Christian and who are you to judge whether or not Brian is. People are quick to talk crap behind a computer. That's what I call "little man syndrome". Haters.

RIP JEREMY, your in God's hands now.

Deegan was born with deformed genitals which is why he lashes out and is so angry all the time. He needs a therapist.
