WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder Arrested

Deontay Wilder was arrested and charged with marijuana possession in his hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Tuscaloosa police said in a statement that they arrested Wilder on Wednesday after they found marijuana in his Cadillac Escalade. They say they stopped Wilder for a window tint violation.

The department says officers got permission to search the car after smelling marijuana and discovered a small amount inside the vehicle. Wilder was charged by police and released on a $1,000 (£784) bond. The 31-year-old's attorney Paul Patterson did not immediately comment but later told the Tuscaloosa News that the marijuana did not belong to Wilder and that someone had used his vehicle when he was out of town.
Wilder made the fifth successful defence of his WBC title by halting compatriot Gerald Washington in Alabama in February.
