Heavyweight champ Wilder arrested in Alabama on marijuana charge

WBC heavyweight boxing title holder Deontay Wilder has been arrested in Alabama for marijuana possession.

Tuscaloosa, Alabama, police said in a statement that they arrested Wilder on Wednesday after they found marijuana in his Cadillac Escalade.

After being pulled over for a tinted window violation, officers were said to have smelled evidence of the drug and a "minimal" amount was found in the vehicle which Wilder was driving.

Wilder was charged with second-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and received a citation for a tint violation. Officers searched the auto after smelling marijuana and found a small amount in the vehicle's console.

US consumer prices slipped 0.1 per cent in May
The so-called core CPI , which strips out food and energy costs, edged up 0.1 percent last month after a similar gain in April. Earlier this month, RBI left key interest rate unchanged as it wanted to be more sure that inflation will stay subdued.

Paul Patterson - Wilder's attorney, continued by explaining that Wilder had been out of state recently visiting Georgia, in which he was driving his Rolls Royce whilst the vehicle in question - his Cadillac, had been at home amongst Wilder's fleet of other cars. "Wilder for misdemeanor possession", said Patterson.

Wilder, who has yet to be defeated in thirty eight boxing fights, has been considered by many as the next logical matchup for British born boxer and unified heavyweight champion, Anthony "AJ" Joshua.

Wilder won a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics.

Wilder is actively looking to set up a unification with WBO champ, Jospeph Parker, optimistically hoping that fight can be set for July this year. Wilder has never lost a professional fight with an incredible 38-0 record and 37 KOs.

Meanwhile Bermane Stiverne remains the mandatory challenger for Wilder's prestigious crown.
