WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo was arrested on Wednesday in Texas after a dispute with a waitress.
As per court records (via ESPN), Charlo was charged with three counts of second-degree robbery for the incident which occurred last month. Charlo has since posted bond for all three charges and is now released.
As far as what the incident was? Records stated that Charlo and others were at a San Antonio bar and didn’t pay a “large bar bill” after his credit card was declined thrice.
Bar employees would tell police that Charlo accused a waitress of losing his credit card and demanded she pay the bill instead.
Footage also showed Charlo going through two of the waitress’ bill collection binders which contained his identification and another customer’s cash payment. Police said the binders were empty upon return.
An affidavit also stated that he yelled he would “f— you all’s s— up.”
Nobody from Charlo’s team has yet to comment thus far.
The American is coming off a successful title defense over Juan Macias Montiel after outpointing him over 12 rounds in June.
