Former Boxing Champion Vinny Paz Arrested

17.12.04 - Vinny "The Pazmanian Devil" Paz was arrested for resisting arrest under suspicion of driving while intoxicated. According to Paz's Agent Nicholas Cordasco of Prince Marketing Group the officers asked Paz to walk a straight line, Vinny commented with "I have been in 60 wars in the ring, sober or drunk isn't that easy for me to walk straight line at 3 AM with 3 inch heals on." Apparently the officers took that as a smart ass comment and and took the champ into custody..

Finally Cordasco added that this is a total misundertang that he knows his client rarely if ever drinks anymore as Paz is focused on his post boxing career. Paz has numerous endorstment deals, a book and a movie deal about his life in the works. Paz is most remebered for his warrior like comback when he broke his neck in 1991 when doctors told him he would never fight again. Not only did he fight again but he won 3 world titles after the accident.
