Boxing Champ Jermain Taylor Arrested & Jailed … Stemming From DV Case
11/8/2018 6:58 AM PST
Former boxing Jermain Taylor was arrested and hauled to jail Wednesday morning … and it all stems from an incident where he allegedly KO’d and threatened to kill his GF.
Back in August, Taylor was arrested in Arkansas for allegedly knocking a woman unconscious … and holding a knife to her throat.
At the time, he was booked into the county jail … but released on $15k bond.
Now prosecutors are moving forward with the case … indicting the former middleweight champ on felony aggravated assault, felony terroristic threats and misdemeanor domestic battery.
The indictment triggered an arrest warrant … so cops went and picked up Taylor.
JT’s currently in the Pulaski County jail.
FYI — this ain’t the first time Taylor’s been in trouble with the law … he’s previously been arrested for allegedly shooting his own cousin, allegedly making terroristic threats and firing a handgun at an MLK Jr. parade, and allegedly brutally beating a fellow patient at a rehab facility.
Taylor is set to appear before a judge Thursday morning.
10:13 AM PT — Taylor has been released from county jail on $10K bail.
