Jermall Charlo arrested following bar dispute, facing multiple felony charges | DAZN News US

The WBC middleweight champion could potentially be facing some trouble.

WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday in Bexar County after being issued three felony robbery warrants by San Antonio police after an incident in July. Court records show the second-degree warrants were issued on Aug. 7.

The 31-year-old Charlo turned himself in and was booked at a satellite office at the Bexar County Courthouse and released on bond bout 30 minutes later. Charlo's attorney says the boxer did nothing wrong and feels the San Antonio Police Department is pressing forward with the case to embarass his client.

"Jermall stole no money from anyone at the club & made no threats," the attorney told KSATNews

Charlo was in San Antonio to support his brother Jermell's undisputed junior middleweight title fight against Brian Castano on July 17. The day before, on July 16, San Antonio police received a telephone call around 2 a.m. that Charlo had allegedly assaulted a waitress and stole her tips. 

According police documents, Charlo went to pay the bill and his credit card was declined three times. The report also states that once Charlo was told he needed to provide another form of payment, he accused the waitress of trying to steal the credit card, grabbed two black waiter books and took his identification from one and cash from the another. SAPD claims surveillance video from the facility shows Charlo "being very animated" and looks to "be upset and yelling" at the waitress and two other managers of the establishment. 

The warrant also says that Charlo and his entourage “pushed their way out of the building and left the location” in a limousine bus. The report states the waitress allegedly suffered a minor leg injury.

Charlo (32-0, 22 KOs) last fought in June, defeating Juan Montiel via unanimous decision. His next fight hasn't been revealed.
