(CMR) Boxer Charles “The Killa” Whittaker (47) of West Bay, who was arrested yesterday following a disturbance at the D. Dalmain Ebanks Boxing Gym, remains in custody.
Police reported that shortly after 4:15 pm, officers responded to a report of a disturbance at the D. Dalmain Ebanks Boxing Gym on Olympic Way, where it was reported that a man had been involved in a dispute and had caused damage to the building.
Officers arrived at the location, observed several persons gathered outside of the gym, and spoke to them. The officers also observed that the glass doors at the front of the gym had been severely damaged.
The police did not name the person who caused the damage; however, video footage of the incident showed Whittaker.
