Deontay Wilder arrested in Hollywood
Arrest made after Wilder found with drugs and gun in his car
TMZ Sports has reported that former WBC World heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has been arrested in L.A. on a gun charge.
On Tuesday, May 5, TMZ Sports reported the news that Deontay Wilder had spent some of his Tuesday morning behind bars.
This is what the initial report stated: "TMZ Sports has learned the star boxer was arrested in Los Angeles following a routine traffic stop.
"Law enforcement sources tell us… Wilder was pulled over in Hollywood at around 1:15am after LAPD officers claimed his Rolls-Royce's windows were illegally tinted and his license plate was obstructed.
"During the stop, cops say they smelled an odor of burnt marijuana coming from his ride — so they searched the car. Our sources say they then found weed and a 9mm in the vehicle, and put Wilder into custody. We're told the 6-foot-7 fighter was cooperative and nice throughout the whole ordeal."
Wilder took to Twitter to send a message: "I’d rather be safe than sorry. The End."
It's been reported he was released at 6:43am, approximately five hours after his arrest.
Wilder, who boasts a 43-2-1 record with 42 knockouts, is reportedly set for a huge showdown with British rival Anthony Joshua in December.Anthony Joshua confirms December fight with Deontay Wilder
