Boxing champ Taylor pleads not guilty to gun, drug charges

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Boxing champion Jermain Taylor is 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.

But Pulaski County Sheriff's Capt. Carl Minden said Wednesday that Taylor needs to surrender after his bond was revoked in an earlier firearms case. Minden says if Taylor doesn't surrender, deputies will "go get him."

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.

An arrest warrant was issued after his bond in the earlier case was revoked Tuesday afternoon. Prosecutors say his arrest on the current charges shows he violated the terms of his release.

His attorney did not immediately return a phone call.
