Deontay Wilder Busted for Pot

 

According to a report from Boxing Scene, WBC Heavyweight Deontay Wilder has been hit with 60 hours of community service for a misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Wilder will not be headed to jail, which is what city prosecutors were looking to hit Wilder with on top of participation in a diversion program.

Judge Ricky McKinney found the undefeated Heavyweight guilty on Thursday and handed Wilder a 30-day suspended sentence and two years of probation as well.

After being pulled over in June, officers searched Wilder’s Cadillac Escalade and found a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle’s console.

Wilder received a traffic citation, was charged with second-degree marijuana possession and then was released after posting $1,000 bond.

 

“The Bronze Bomber” is set to face undefeated Cuban knockout artist Luis Ortiz at Barclays Center on March 3. No word on if this verdict will change those plans.
