Boxing star Gerald Washington has been placed behind bars after California police discovered a warrant out for his arrest following a traffic stop on Monday night (15Sep14).

Cops pulled over the 32 year old's Chevy truck after spotting the vehicle "straddling the lines" of the road in Burbank.

They discovered he was driving with expired licence tags and, upon running his name through the police system, officers learned he was wanted for previously driving without a licence.

Washington was taken into custody and is currently being held on $5,000 (£3,125) bail, reports Tmz.com.
