Ryan Garcia has reportedly been arrested.

Boxer Ryan Garcia has reportedly been arrested after an alleged incident in a hotel situated in Beverly Hills.

In April, Garcia won his fight against Devin Haney but was then hit with major controversy due to an alleged failed drug test.

As reported by ESPN, Garcia had tested positive for the performance-enhancing substance ostarine on the day before and of his fight against Haney.

Now, ESPN reported that Garcia was arrested on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

The report stated: “Boxing star Ryan Garcia was arrested Saturday for felony vandalism after a Beverly Hills hotel accused him of causing an estimated $15,000 in damage, a Beverly Hills Police Department watch commander told ESPN.

“Garcia, 25, was arrested at 5:45 p.m. after a driver who dropped him off at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills phoned police, according to police.”

In a statement, Garcia’s attorney Darin Chavez said: “Ryan has been open about his struggles with mental health over the years, and at this time he is dealing with an immense emotional burden.

“The support and understanding from fans and the public are crucial as he navigates these personal challenges. We are working diligently to provide Ryan with the resources he needs.”


It continued: “Our team is committed to ensuring that he receives the appropriate help and care to address both his immediate and long-term well-being. We ask for continued support and compassion as Ryan focuses on his family and his health at this time."
