“The Bronze Bomber” Arrested in Las Vegas for Domestic Violence

By Gordon Law Offices  May. 20, 2013 11:15a

27-year-old heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder was in Vegas recently for the Floyd Mayweather fight but made additional headlines for a much different sort of fight. Police were called to the MGM Grand hotel around 7:30 on Saturday morning for an alleged domestic violence incident. LVPD officers took Wilder and a woman into custody for questioning. The woman appeared to have several injuries including swelling around both eyes, red marks around her neck from a possible strangulation, a cut lip and a possible broken nose. The boxer has an impressive 28 knockouts in his last 28 fights, a record which could result in enhancements to the charges that may be placed against him. He was booked into the Clark County jail and released on Monday on his own recognizance after posting a $15,000 bond. His defense attorney recently stated that the incident was a misunderstanding. He contends that Wilder had "…instinctively acted under the false impression in that someone was stealing from him." The attorney went on to say that it turned out that this was not the case and that Wilder and the woman had spoken about the matter. The woman is reported to have subsequently accepted an apology offered by the boxer.
