Judge OKs $25,000 bond for boxer Jermain Taylor

MAUMELLE, Ark. (AP) — Boxer Jermain Taylor is free on a $25,000 bond after the former middleweight champion was jailed overnight in Little Rock in connection with a shooting that wounded his cousin.

Taylor appeared via video from the Pulaski County jail for an initial appearance Wednesday.

District Judge Wayne Gruber also granted a defense request for Taylor to travel out of state to train and compete in a bout against Sam Soliman in October.

Pulaski County Sheriff's Lt. Carl Minden says Taylor was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery and aggravated assault in a shooting that wounded Taylor's cousin, Tyrone Hinton.

Minden says the shooting happened Tuesday at Taylor's home in Maumelle, a suburb of Little Rock.

Taylor held the middleweight title from 2005 until 2007.
