Reigning World Boxing Council champion Deontay Wilder was arrested and subsequently charged with marijuana possession. 

The Tuscaloosa News reports that Wilder, who had just returned from a trip to Georgia, was out in his Cadillac Escalade and was stopped around 4 p.m. at the old Books-A-Million parking lot.

Officer Roach had stopped Wilder for a window tint violation and detected a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle. Wilder was arrested and charged with second-degree possession of marijuana.

Wilder’s attorney, Paul Patterson, said the marijuana wasn’t Wilder’s and was left by someone to whom Wilder had lent the vehicle in his absence.
