Derrick Campos Arrested, Allegedly Vandalized Ex’s Car

by David P. Greisman

Derrick Campos — a measuring-stick opponent to many a prospect from junior lightweight to junior welterweight — was arrested Feb. 12 in Kansas after allegedly vandalizing his ex-girlfriend’s car.

Campos, 30, has been charged with one count each of criminal damage to property, obstruction and simple assault, according to The Topeka Capital-Journal.

He is accused of breaking the vehicle’s windows, causing more than $1,500 in damage, and then trying to run away from arriving police officers.

This is only the latest run-in with the law for Campos. Last year alone he was arrested on at least three occasions, according to newspaper reports at the time. In August, he pleaded no contest to one count of domestic battery, was given a six-month suspended sentence and a year of probation.

Campos is 20-12 with 11 knockouts. Those losses include defeats against some familiar names: Diego Magdaleno, Archie Ray Marquez, Jorge Paez Jr., Eloy Perez and Dmitriy Salita. He last fought in July, suffering his sixth-straight loss, this one via second-round technical knockout against Terence Crawford.
