Share the joy

Former middleweight champion and Olympic silver medal winner Jermain Taylor was arrested for the second time in November.

The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports that Taylor was booked into the Pulaski County jail on Wednesday, after being arrested on a charge of non-payment of child support. Taylor will be held until he pays $5,300 to the court registry.

Taylor reportedly owes $54,500 in child support payments.


Earlier this month, Taylor was arrested on three charges of petition for revocation. A petition of revocation charge indicates Taylor violated the terms of his bail.

Back in August, Taylor was arrested on charges of terroristic threatening, third-degree domestic battery and aggravated assault after he allegedly knocked his girlfriend unconscious. Taylor was released after posting a $15,000 bond and was released on August 30.

Taylor was also arrested in July 2017 on a disturbance call, after a woman alleged that Taylor bit her on the arm and face and threatened to kill her.

Taylor suffered a brutal knockout at the hands of Arthur Abraham in 2009, as part of the Super Six super middleweight tournament.

He took off from boxing for two years before mounting a comeback, that saw him capture the IBF middleweight crown with an unexpected dominating win over Sam Soliman in 2014.

But before he could cash in on the big title win, Taylor was involved in a variety of legal issues that saw him get arrested for several violent crimes.

He’s currently serving a six-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty in 2015 to nine charges, including shooting his cousin in the leg.
