Paul Spadafora Has Charges Dropped Against Him in Store Case

Prosecutors have withdrawn charges against former lightweight world champion Paul Spadafora, who was accused of holding a knife in front of a convenience store worker.

Police said last month that Spadafora, known as The Pittsburgh Kid, appeared to be yelling at a Manor Township convenience store clerk while drunkenly holding a blueberry muffin and a tactical knife.

Defense attorney Phil DiLucente tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Spadafora was using the knife to put cream cheese on the muffin. Charges in the incident were withdrawn on Tuesday.


A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Thursday for charges in an incident hours earlier at a suburban Pittsburgh bar.

Police say Spadafora put a 63-year-old woman in a headlock, drank her beer and threw her to the pavement when she went to call police.

Spadafora (49-1-1, 19KOs), 40-years-old, has been inactive for nearly two years. He was last seen in the ring back in July of 2014, when he won an eight round unanimous decision over Hector Velazquez.

Man Paul is a legit f*** up, he should just get back in the ring and do something productive with whatever years he has left. He should have stayed with the Porter family training, he could have been relevant at…
