According to ABC Action News in Toledo, Ohio, former world champion Robert Easter Jr., has been charged with assault for allegedly punching a woman.
ABC Action news obtained court records, which indicate that the incident happened at around 3:38 a.m. on Saturday, August 7, 2021.
Easter is alleged to have struck a woman on the left side of her face once with a closed fist, causing her to lose consciousness.
According to the court records, the responding officer said the victim had a split lip and a chipped tooth.
Easter, 30-years-old, is now facing a charge of simple assault.
Easter (23-1-1, 14 KOs), a former lightweight champion, moved up to junior welterweight in 2019 and picked up a decision win over rugged Adrian Granados.
Back in February, Easter returned to the ring for the first time since October of 2019. He won a twelve round unanimous decision over Ryan Martin at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville. The fight took place on the undercard of Adrien Broner's comeback bout against Jovanie Santiago.
