Pavlik pleads guilty in cab case


CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Retired boxer Kelly Pavlik was in court Friday morning.

Pavlik pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in connection to a September incident where a local cab driver accused him of not paying a $25 fare.

The former middle weight boxing champion took the cab from a local bar to his Canfield home.

The judge ordered Pavlik to pay fines totaling $526.

Pavlik appeared in court to face the theft charges four weeks ago but collapsed before the proceedings began.

Pavlik is still facing an OVI charge after the Ohio State Highway Patrol stopped him in December at the toll plaza in Jackson Township.

Several drivers called the patrol to warn of the possible drunk driver on the turnpike and troopers caught up with Pavlik at the booth.
