Jermall Charlo has been released on bond after answering an arrest warrant for felony robbery charges stemming from an alleged incident in San Antonio earlier this summer.
After learning of an outstanding warrant issued on August 7, the unbeaten two-division and reigning WBC middleweight champion turned himself into Bexar County police on Wednesday morning. Charlo was arrested on three counts of second-degree felony robbery, all of which originate from a complaint filed on July 16 at San Antonio’s Privat Martini Bar & Social Club. After paying a $5,000 surety bond for each felony, the Houston native was released immediately after his arrest.
Charlo was in town to support his twin brother, WBO titlist Brian Castano, who was fighting for the lineal/WBC/WBA/IBF junior middleweight title that weekend at AT&T Center. Premier Boxing Champions (PBC), a conglomerate that represents both boxers and acknowledged the incident in issue, hosted the event.
According to the incident report, Charlo allegedly stole cash from a guest check portfolio and accused a waiter of attempting to steal his debit card while obtaining his driver’s license from another portfolio, according to a copy acquired by BoxingScene.com. According to the report, a member of Charlo’s group harmed a waitress as they left the establishment, though there appear to be discrepancies in both the order of events and the scope of the incident.
The method by which Charlo obtained his license is an area where the two parties agree. The boxer was understandably upset about the establishment’s inability to locate his debit card when he noticed his license protruding from a check presenter, which he returned because “he didn’t want her to lose it, too,” according to his attorney.
As per the report, police responded to a call from the restaurant at 2:00 a.m. So according to Bexar County court records, officials assigned to the case believed there was enough evidence to proceed with the case, and arrest warrants were issued on August 7. The case is still awaiting indictment.
As per court records, Charlo was also handed a no-contact order with the claimed victim (s). His legal team believes the situation will be handled without the need for criminal charges to be filed, despite a purported arrangement that charges would not be filed.
