'I Ain't Coming Out': Ex-Champ Boxer Meldrick Taylor Faces Charges After Armed Standoff With Philadelphia Police



Former world championship boxer and Olympic gold medalist Meldrick Taylor is charged for his alleged role in an armed standoff with Philadelphia police.

Officers responded to a North Philadelphia property on Lehigh Avenue late Monday night after a 26-year-old man said Taylor pulled a revolver on him while trying to evict the man from a first-floor apartment, Philadelphia police said.

The man said that Taylor, 52, pointed the gun after the 26-year-old informed Taylor that he needed to give him days to vacate the property rather than force him to leave the next morning, police said.

When officers arrived and knocked on the door of the home, Taylor screamed, “I ain’t coming out,” police said. SWAT was called in and Taylor eventually surrendered after about 90 minutes, investigators said.

The Philadelphia native was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and weapons charges. It is unclear if he has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Jeez, Meldrick is 52? I'm really getting old ......


I wonder if Taylor has mental problems, from getting hit in the head all those years?
Maybe he's just an asshole, but I never got that vibe from him, in interviews back in the day.

That's not even in question, constant head trauma is known to not only change someone's personality, but make them more aggressive
