Boxing Star Ryan Garcia Arrested for Felony Vandalism

Boxing sensation Ryan Garcia found himself in hot water over the weekend as he was arrested on Saturday for felony vandalism in Beverly Hills. According to a Beverly Hills Police Department watch commander, Garcia is accused of causing an estimated $15,000 in damage at a local hotel.

Arrest Details

At 5:45 p.m. local time, Garcia was taken into custody after a driver who dropped him off at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills contacted the police. Subsequently, the hotel decided to press charges upon police arrival. The specifics of the damage and Garcia’s behavior are still unclear.

Legal Proceedings

Following his arrest, Garcia was booked at the Beverly Hills Police Department jail. However, he soon complained of a medical issue and was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for evaluation and treatment. Garcia’s attorney, Darin Chavez, mentioned the possibility of him being charged with public intoxication.

Recent Controversies

Earlier in April, Garcia faced suspension from the New York Athletic Commission after testing positive for the banned substance ostarine. Despite a majority decision victory over Devin Haney, Garcia’s title chances were jeopardized as he was overweight for the fight.

Legal Ramifications

As the New York Athletic Commission deliberates on Garcia’s case, the outcome of his victory hangs in the balance. There is a possibility that his win over Haney may be overturned, adding further uncertainty to Garcia’s professional boxing career.
