Paz charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct
Boxing icon Vinny Paz turned himself in to Warwick police this morning after being charged with domestic simple assault and domestic disorderly conduct.
The arrest warrant for Paz, 44, was issued early Friday morning, police said.
Paz's girlfriend, Ashley P. Spencer, 25, of Eliot, Maine, is the alleged victim, the police said.
The former five-time boxing world champion arrived at the police station around 7 a.m. and was then taken to the Kent County Court to be arraigned, the police said.
Paz, a Cranston native who now lives in Warwick, has been arrested twice i the last eight years, most recently in February, for refusing to take a Breathalyzer test. Then in January 2000, he was arrested outside a club in Pawtucket and pleaded no contest to assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.
