Deontay Wilder was arrested and booked on a gun charge.
The 37-year-old professional boxer was in L.A. at the time, during a routine traffic stop.
According to TMZ, he was pulled over in Hollywood around 1:15 AM.
Apparently, law enforcement claims the boxer was driving in his Rolls-Royce with illegally tinted windows and his license plate obstructed.
Once detained, the smell of burnt marijuana coming from his ride caught their attention initiating a search of his vehicle.
Upon their search, they discovered weed.
However, that was not the only find, as the 6-foot-7 fighter also had a 9mm in the vehicle.
His demeanor was described as cooperative and nice throughout the entire ordeal.
However, he spent the better part of the morning behind bars and finally bonded out at 6:34 a.m.
His charge is possession of a concealed weapon.
Seemingly responding to the incident on his Twitter page, he simply posted –
“I’d rather be safe than sorry. The End.”
I’d rather be safe than sorry. The End 🙏🏿

The prized fighter, with 42 knockouts under his belt, is expected to jump into the ring in a heavyweight super fight with Anthony Joshua sometime later this year.
It remains to be seen if this arrest will affect the negotiations of the fight at all.
