Junior welterweight titlist Terence Crawford was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges for forcibly removing his car from a local auto body shop and causing thousands of dollars in damages.

As a short recap of the incident, Crawford was said to have showed up to a Omaha body shop demanding the release of his 1984 Chevy Monte Carlo. The owner said the car wouldn't be returned until Crawford paid an outstanding $1,350 bill for a paint job and then Crawford then took things into his own hands.

Crawford would go to the hydraulic lift, lower his car himself, and tow the car away with the help of three friends. In doing so, however, Crawford broke the lift, causing about $5,000 in damages.

Crawford was found guilty yesterday of damage to property and disorderly conduct and is expected to be sentenced in December. Crawford is most recently coming off a big title unification win over Viktor Postol this past July and has yet to be scheduled for his next outing.
