Just weeks after a lucrative fight in Saudi Arabia, heavyweight boxer Jarrell Miller has found himself in a new incident again, this time facing charges of carjacking and physical assault. Miller, known for past controversies, including a 2019 doping suspension that cost him a big fight with Anthony Joshua, was arrested on Wednesday in Hollywood, Florida.

According to reports, he and an unidentified female accomplice attacked a Dodge Ram pickup truck at the Haims Motors dealership. The woman first contacted the store claiming that she had forgotten the keys in the vehicle. When the employee tried to return the keys, Miller allegedly grabbed him and choked him before fleeing with the truck.

Fortunately, the vehicle was equipped with a tracking device, which led to Miller's quick arrest nearby. This bizarre incident raises concerns about Miller's personal behavior and future prospects. Facing charges and a $30,000 bond, his immediate return to the boxing ring seems unlikely.

He was apparently lured to the Day of Reckoning event by lavish Saudi money. But it seems that this case is much more complex and the true background of the story has yet to be revealed.

A long history of repeating various incidents

Miller's history of questionable decisions is long and troubling.

The 2019 doping scandal cost him a shot at the heavyweight championship and millions in potential earnings. Then he was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua for the championship belt, but because of his bad decisions, he hurt his career a lot.

This latest incident further tarnishes his already tarnished image and raises questions about his general well-being and continued career. While fans were excited to see Miller back in the ring after his recent loss to Daniel Dubois, his latest outbursts threaten to derail his career once again.

The legal ramifications of this carjacking incident could be significant, potentially resulting in jail time and heavy fines. Even if he avoids a lengthy sentence, the negative publicity and loss of public trust could further hamper his efforts to return. Jarrell Miller's journey promises to be anything but predictable.
