Forme boxing champion Antonio Tarver has been arrested after using his fight skills outside the ring. According to TMZ, Tarver was arrested Monday (Aug 13) after allegedly punching his 18-year-old stepson in the face multiple times. His stepson phoned 911 and alerted authorities that he was attacked by his stepfather.
18-year-old Aziya Taylor told police that the altercation between him and Tarver stemmed from his inability to pay for his food at Waffle House. Taylor claims that when they arrived back home, Tarver “bum-rushed” him and punched him a number of times, leaving his mouth bloodied.
Tarver acknowledged the altercation but said that Taylor’s bloodied mouth was a result of “tripping” during the tussle.
