WBA junior middleweight champ Austin Trout was arrested early Tuesday morning in El Paso on suspicion of public intoxication. Police were called out to a Taco Cabana after a fight broke out around 4:30am. Trout told KTSM in Las Cruces he was not drunk and expects the charge to be dismissed.
The arrest comes a month after Trout beat Miguel Cotto in New York City. Trout hopes to unify the light middleweight title in May.
