WBC world champ Jermall Charlo arrested after allegedly stealing from waitress as boxer hands himself in to cops

WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo has handed himself in to police after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The 31-year-old, who is 32-0 as a professional, allegedly assaulted a waiter in San Antonio on July 16 and took off with her tips after a card he tried to use to pay for a tab was declined numerous times.

The warrant then states that Charlo took two black waiter books, removed his ID from one and cash from the other.

From there, the boxer and his friends allegedly forced their way out of the building and took off in a limousine bus.

The waitress is said to have suffered a lower leg injury as a result of one of Charlo’s group stepping on her as they left.

Charlo’s attorney Kent A. Schaffer sent an email to KSAT News which read: “I represent Jermall Charlo and I just saw your story regarding his case.

“I want to make clear that Jermall stole no money from anyone at the club and made no threats toward anyone. When they ran his card it was declined and he then received a fraud alert from Chase Bank asking if he had made the charge.

“He responded yes and they told him to have the charge submitted again. The waitress went to run it again and came back saying she could not find the card. Jermall was upset that his card was missing since it was a debit card tied to an account with a substantial amount of money.

“The waitress had his license sticking out of a portfolio and he took his license back saying that he didn’t want her to lose that too. By this time, many club employees were gathering in the hallway so Jermall’s handlers wanted to get him out of the club before trouble started and a club employee walked Jermall out to his car.

“Hours later Jermall’s assistant made contact with the club to give them another credit card number but the club refused to accept it.

“Over the last few weeks we have talked to the police, prosecutors and the club owner and although the club owner expressed his desire to drop the charges the officer insisted on filing charges to try to embarrass Jermall.

“At no time did he rob anyone or take any property other than his own.”

Charlo was in San Antonio to watch his brother Jermell’s world title fight against Brian Castano, which ended in a split decision draw.

Meanwhile, Jermall’s last fight came back in June when he defeated Juan Macias Montiel by unanimous decision.
