Kelly Pavlik was supposed to have a pretrial hearing Friday morning on minor criminal charges, but Pavlik “made a grunting noise and then collapsed” in the courtroom before the hearing could begin, according to the Youngstown (Ohio) Vindicator.

Pavlik allegedly refused to pay a taxi driver $25 after a ride home from an Ohio bar in September. He is facing one count of theft of less than $1,000.

He also has a pretrial hearing scheduled for March 17 in a separate case, one in which he’s accused of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, according to online court records.

In December, police responded early one morning to a report of a potentially impaired driver on the Ohio Turnpike.

“A trooper spotted Pavlik’s car at the gate trying to exit the turnpike, but Pavlik did not have a pass or ticket on him to exit the toll road,” said the Vindicator’s newspaper report at the time, citing police. “As the trooper questioned Pavlik, he showed signs that he was impaired.”

Pavlik refused a breath test but “was still cited because the trooper had probable cause to believe Pavlik was drunk,” the newspaper reported.

The 31-year-old retired last year after a planned fight with Andre Ward was postponed due to Ward suffering an injury in training camp. His last bout was in July 2012, a decision win over Will Rosinsky. That brought his record to 40-2 with 34 knockouts.

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless]I don't think it was ever well publicized, but seizures is the reason Pavlik gave for retiring. The first time was a week after Ward pulled out. I don't think it has anything to do with alcohol. The man was hit on the head for many years.[/QUOTE] Actually, severe alcoh...
