A district court judge has ruled boxer Terence “Bud” Crawford will not have to spend time in jail in connection with his dispute with an auto body shop in 2016.
Judge Kimberly Miller Pankonin upheld a conviction of disorderly conduct, but reversed his conviction for property damage.
Earlier, Crawford, who is 29, had been found guilty of the misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and causing property damage in his dispute with the body shop in April of last year. Crawford had been ordered to spend 90 days in jail and pay $6,000 in restitution.
Crawford is the undisputed junior welterweight world champion.
Crawford and some friends went to Extreme Custom Fleet & Auto April 4th to reclaim his 1984 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Crawford had paid half of the $2,500 bill to re-paint the car, but had refused to pay the balance, complaining about the quality of the work and the length of time the shop had the car. Owner Michael Nelson complained that Crawford caused damage to the shop when he got the car.
