Austin Trout arrested and released in El Paso on suspicion of public intoxication

US PRESSWIRE

WBA junior middleweight titlist Austin Trout was arrested on early Tuesday morning in El Paso, but has been released and won't be charged with a crime, his promoter says.

Austin Trout's 2013 didn't get off to the best start. The potential opponent for Canelo Alvarez on May 4 was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of public intoxication in El Paso, Texas, and was later released. Promoter Greg Cohen says that the fighter wasn't charged with any crimes, and won't be charged.

From the El Paso Times, which says the police answered a call about a fight:

When the officers arrived, they saw several people yelling inside the restaurant. One officer entered the restaurant and noticed chairs, tables, food and drinks "strewn about the floor."

Employees at the Taco Cabana pointed out those allegedly involved in the fight, including Trout, the WBA world junior middleweight champion, and three others, identified in the report as Daniel Man Kim, Antonio Brown and Selina Ortega.

... Those arrested, including Trout, also allegedly had "slurred speech and unsteady balance."

Cohen paints a different picture:

"Austin was out with his fiancee and friends on New Years Eve, and they went to a taco place late at night to grab a bite to eat, and some women in the establishment got into some type of altercation, and Austin stood up and said, 'Hey, ladies, ladies, calm down.' ... The police came and basically arrested many of the people in there. It was the kind of thing where they acted first and asked questions later."

Either way, it doesn't sound like Trout is getting into any serious trouble with this.
