Boxing sensation Ryan Garcia found himself in legal trouble on Saturday when he was arrested for felony vandalism, accused of causing approximately $15,000 in damage at a Beverly Hills hotel, according to a Beverly Hills Police Department watch commander.

The 25-year-old was taken into custody at 5:45 p.m. after a driver who had dropped him off at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills reported the incident to the authorities. Upon the police’s arrival, the hotel chose to press charges, though details regarding the nature of the damage and Garcia’s conduct remain unclear.

Following his booking at the Beverly Hills Police Department jail, Garcia complained of a medical issue and was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for evaluation and treatment.

Garcia’s attorney, Darin Chavez, informed ESPN that Garcia might also face a charge of public intoxication.

In a statement later on Saturday, Chavez mentioned that Garcia’s arrest occurs during a particularly challenging period, as he is dealing with severe news about his mother’s health.

“Ryan has been transparent about his mental health struggles over the years, and he is currently bearing a significant emotional load,” Chavez stated.

“Support and understanding from fans and the public are essential as he navigates these personal challenges. We are diligently working to provide Ryan with the necessary resources. Our team is dedicated to ensuring he receives appropriate help and care for his immediate and long-term well-being. We request continued support and compassion as Ryan focuses on his family and health at this time.”

Garcia (25-1, 20 KOs) is also facing suspension from the New York Athletic Commission after testing positive for the banned substance ostarine prior to his majority decision victory over Devin Haney in April, a significant upset.

Although Garcia knocked Haney down three times, he was ineligible to win the WBC junior welterweight title due to being 3.2 pounds overweight. The commission is expected to make a decision soon, and his victory might be overturned.
