Boxing champ Taylor booked back into jail after bond revoked

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Boxing champion Jermain Taylor has been booked back into jail after a judge revoked his bond in an August firearms case.

Taylor had been free after he pleaded not guilty to pointing a gun at a man's head and threatened to shoot three small children at an Arkansas parade on Monday.

Taylor was arraigned Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a minor and marijuana possession. He was released on $50,000 bond.

But Pulaski County Sheriff's Capt. Carl Minden says Taylor was rebooked into jail Wednesday afternoon without bond after his bond was revoked Tuesday afternoon in the August case.

Prosecutors say his arrest on the current charges shows he violated the terms of his release.

A message left with Taylor's attorney wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
