In what appears to be the latest bizarre episode of Jermain Taylor, TMZ Sports just revealed that Taylor has an arrest warrant out for him due to an alleged attack on a man at his rehab center. The Pulaski County Sheriff's Department in Arkansas says that the arrest warrant for Taylor was issued this morning, where Taylor is suspected of 2nd degree battery. What may be more disturbing is, at this time, Taylor is not in police custody. Reports are that the alleged victim has been treated at a nearby hospital.

As some of you may remember, Taylor has been in court-ordered rehab since March after a string of incidents where Taylor allegedly pulled a gun on a family at the MLK day parade, and another incident where he allegedly shot his cousin at his home. According to Taylor's lawyer, Christian Alexander, the complaint is "frivolous" and it's just an attempt to shake down a famous athlete.
