WBO junior welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford turned himself in to police and was charged with destruction of property, theft of service, misdemeanor assault and trespassing on Friday in Omaha, Nebraska, according to NBC's local affiliate.

Crawford, 28, and three friends reportedly did $5,000 worth of damage to an auto shop after Crawford came in and demanded his car while refusing to pay for the paint job. Crawford and his friends forcefully took the car off the hydraulic lift and damaged it in the process. The owner was tending to another customer before he heard the noises from within the shop. The car was lowered but the owner alleges that Crawford pushing him as they tried to leave.

The hydraulic lift was broken, with smoke emerging from it when police arrived.

“We personally think the guy’s making a mountain out of a molehill,” Crawford’s attorney, Jason Caskey, told Omaha.com.

Most recently, Crawford defeated Hank Lundy with a fifth-round knockout at Madison Square Garden in February. He holds a 28–0 record with 20 knockouts. On Thursday, Crawford signed a contract for a July 23 fight with Viktor Postol.
