American professional boxer and former Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Deontay Wilder, has been reportedly arrested.
Naija News learnt that the 37-year-old was apprehended on Tuesday over alleged possession of a gun following a routine traffic stop in Los Angeles.
Officers were reportedly observing their routine work in Hollywood at around 1:15 a.m. when they observed that Wilder’s Rolls-Royce has illegally tinted windows and was obstructing the license plate.
Again the officers claimed to have smelled an odour of burnt marijuana during the stop, which prompted them to search the boxer’s car.
During the search, police found marijuana and a handgun. TMZ reported that Wilder was arrested and booked on a charge of possession of a concealed weapon.
Shortly after his arrest, Wilder dropped a cryptic message on his Twitter page which reads: “I’d rather be safe than sorry. The End.”
