Boxer Jermain Taylor fails to appear at court hearing

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) An Arkansas judge has ruled against world champion boxer Jermain Taylor after the former Olympian didn't appear at a court hearing regarding a 2014 shooting involving his cousin.

Taylor is currently serving a six-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to nine felony charges in 2015, including those related to a shooting that left his cousin, Tyrone DaWayne Hinton, in critical condition, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette ( ) reported.

In August 2014, Hinton and his son, Aharon Coley, drove to Taylor's home in North Little Rock in Taylor's car. Taylor confronted the two about damage he saw on his vehicle. When they denied causing the damage, Taylor allegedly retrieved a pistol from his home and fired in their direction. Hinton was struck five times.
