No Pavlik plea deal in OVI case

Staff report


Former middleweight boxing champion Kelly Pavlik declined a plea deal Monday and a trial date is set for a charge of operating a motor vehicle while impaired.

Pavlik, 31, was in Mahoning County Court 4 for a pretrial hearing on a charge of OVI from December 2013. He pleaded not guilty on Dec. 10. His trial is set for 9:30 a.m. May 14 at in the same courtroom.

He was cited for OVI at about 12:25 a.m. Dec. 9 at the Youngstown-Niles exit on the Ohio Turnpike. He refused a Breathalyzer test, but the trooper still cited him because he had reasonable cause, a report said.

In a separate cae, Pavlik pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct Feb. 28 in Canfield. He was fined and granted 30 days to pay the fine. This case stemmed from an incident with a cab driver who accused Pavlik of not paying for a $25 cab ride on Sept. 18, 2013.

He also was charged with driving under the influence in 2011 and pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of failure to control in April 2012 in Canfield.

The boxer went 40-2 in his professional career, with 34 knockouts. He was the middleweight world champion in 2007.

Too bad Pavlik didn't have T.J. Assion as his personal chauffeur to save him from the OVI charge.

He'll end up in jail one way or another. He's too weak to admit that he's an alcoholic. It's obvious to everyone around him except him. SAD.

Give the guy a break already! There's enough crooked politicians in the valley to keep the courts tied up for years. This guy just had a few beers!
