One month after his highly-publicized ambush of male content creator Flesh Mechanic—an attack that resulted in an attempted murder charge—Uncut James was arrested on multiple charges in Arizona, according to documents obtained by PornCrush.

Jail records from the Pinal County (Ariz.) Adult Detention Center indicates James was booked on May 6 for driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, and unlawful flight from a law enforcement vehicle.

The latter charge is considered a felony in Arizona that is punishable by up to six months in prison. James was released from custody on May 10 after posting a $2,000 secured bond.

James, 26, was arrested in Los Angeles on April 2 after ramming his truck into the back of Flesh Mechanic’s motorcycle and then attacking him with a golf club. The performer allegedly flew into a jealous rage because he was upset that Flesh Mechanic had filmed a scene with his former girlfriend.

Flesh Mechanic fended off the attack, shattering James’ orbital bone with a punch and then pinning him to the ground until police and paramedics arrived. James was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and mistakenly released. He was arrested later that evening and booked into the LA Metro Detention Center. He was later released after posting a $1 million bond.

A former friend of James told PornCrush that he’d discussed his plan to murder Flesh Mechanic weeks before the attack.

“I thought he was joking,” said the friend, who spoke to PornCrush on the condition of anonymity. “I never imagined he would actually go through with it.”

The friend said she attended a comedy show with James about two weeks before the attack. She said the former male talent was despondent following a breakup with his girlfriend—and irate that she had recently shot a scene with Flesh Mechanic.

“I felt bad for him, in some ways,” said the friend. “He was a very unhappy person, and he was becoming erratic. It was clear that he was struggling.”

The friend said James had expressed his disdain for Flesh Mechanic in the past. But when his name surfaced during the car ride home, James took his hatred to a new level when he “joked” about killing Flesh Mechanic with a hammer.

“I was pretty shocked,” the friend said. “I turned to him and asked him point blank, ‘What the fuck is wrong with you? Why would you say that?’”

An argument ensued.

“He eventually said, ‘I’m just making a little joke—but I do know how to do it. I know someone who has a truck with a flatbed to transport (the body). And (Flesh Mechanic) always posts his location online, so I could just wait outside.’

“I said, ‘You’re being crazy! You’re being weird, and I hope you know how wrong that would be and that I’d never defend you.’ The car got really quiet after that.”

The friend paused.

“Two weeks later,” she said, “he shocked us all.”
