Heavyweight Boxer Deontay Wilder Arrested For Strangling Woman in Vegas
Wilder is one of the few American Heavyweights that people have high hopes for. He has fought nothing but Tomato Cans, so it is hard to say if he will ever be any good.
One thing he needs to do though is stay out of trouble with the law and he had a hard time doing that this weekend in Vegas.
The 27-year-old was arrested in Las Vegas on Saturday and is alleged to have attempted to strangle his victim.
Wilder was released on a $15,000 bond and appeared in court on Monday. He is due to do so again on July 3.
This all happened at a hotel at 7:30am, the morning before the Mayweather fight. Police say a male (Wilder) and female got into an altercation. The woman was taken to the hospital with possible broken nose, swollen lip and eyebrows and strangulation marks on her neck.
