Jermain Taylor Back in Jail, Arrested For Violating Terms of Bail

In what appears to be a common occurrence for the former unified middleweight champion and Olympic medalist, Jermain Taylor is once again behind bars after being arrested.

According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, the boxer was arrested on Wednesday - just two months after his last stint in the Pulaski County jail.

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


Chief Deputy Prosecutor John Johnson told the paper that the Pulaski County prosecuting attorney’s office filed the petition and that the allegation is based on a new charge.

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.

As of Wednesday evening, Taylor was still in jail with no bond set.

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.
