Terence "Bud" Crawford surrendered to police on Friday in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, stemming from an incident where he was accused of causing significant damage in an auto body shop. He's being charged with four misdemeanors: theft of services, criminal mischief, assault in the third degree, and trespassing.

From WOWT:

Crawford had initially faced a felony theft charge when some of the dollar amount estimated for criminal mischief went into the range of a felony. "It all depends on the evidence and obviously after that was reviewed from an evidentiary perspective, I think the officers realized this is probably going to be a misdemeanor level, it doesn't quite fit the value," said Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine. "And so that's why it went the way it did."

Crawford's lawyer Steve Lefler said that his client is "prepared to go to trial" if the case "is not resolved the way they want."

As for his boxing career, Crawford is scheduled to return to the ring on July 23, likely against Viktor Postol, and it doesn't look like any of this will interfere with the date for his boxing return.
