LITTLE ROCK — Middleweight boxing champion Jermain Taylor of Little Rock was booked Wednesday into the Pulaski County jail, where he was being held late Wednesday afternoon without bond.


Authorities said Taylor, 36, turned himself in a day after Pulaski County Circuit Judge Leon Johnson signed an order revoking his bond in connection with the Aug. 26 shooting of Taylor’s cousin, Tyrone Hinton of Jacksonville.


The judge revoked Taylor’s bond after police arrested Taylor Monday on suspicion of aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a minor in the third degree and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Thelton Smith, 41, of Little Rock told police that Taylor fired a gun at him and pointed the gun at his wife and three children Monday afternoon.


Police found a gun and marijuana on Taylor’s person Monday, according to a police report. Taylor was released Tuesday morning on a $50,000 bond before the judge signed the order revoking his bond in the other case.


Taylor is scheduled to stand trial June 23 on charges of first-degree battery and aggravated assault in Hinton’s shooting.
