Jarrell Miller was reportedly arrested on Tuesday afternoon for an alleged carjacking without a firearm or weapon and burglary with assault or battery.
Miller was apprehended by the police in Hollywood, Florida, after being accused of attacking a car dealership employee and then disappearing in a Dodge Ram pickup truck that was recently repossessed, according to news network WSVN.
Police reportedly said that Miller did not know that the truck had a tracker inside, which saw him located and arrested later in the day.
The 35-year-old heavyweight boxer is said to have placed the employee in a chokehold and slammed him to the ground before snatching his keys and fleeing the scene.
Miller is being held on a $30,000 bond at the Broward Sheriff’s Office in Fort Lauderdale – having had a court hearing Wednesday afternoon, according to reports.

The news comes just 12 days after Miller’s mega-money bout with Daniel Dubois in Saudi Arabia, with the pair featuring on the highly-anticipated Day of Reckoning card.
The 35-year-old American lost the fight due to a 12th-round TKO, but picked up a career highest payday in the process – which he says is in the millions, though full details have not been disclosed.
The fight was meant to help Miller get his life back on track after being handed a two-year ban in December 2020 following a four positive drugs tests in a 12-month period.
Miller was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua for the Brit’s IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight titles at Madison Square Garden on June 1, 2020.
However, Miller failed a series of Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) tests in late March and served a six-month ban as a result of his doping.
Eddie Hearn decided to move on from Miller – who tested positive for human growth hormone, EPO and GW1516 – and set Joshua up with Andy Ruiz instead.
However, Ruiz stunned the world by stopping Joshua in brutal fashion in the bout on June 1, 2019 – taking Joshua’s heavyweight titles.
Interviewed on Mail Sport podcast The Hook, Miller has said that Joshua is still ‘bitter’ and that nobody ‘gives a s***’ about Joshua in America.
When asked if Joshua is still bitter at Miller, the American said: ‘Most definitely he’s still bitter about that but it’s so funny that you lose to somebody that doesn’t hit as hard as me, not as big as I am, not as mean as I am – short notice and he smoked you.
‘I have a better chin than Andy I believe. If that guy did that to you, imagine what I would do to you in my home city (New York). Mentally, it makes you look at AJ – even from that day on – he’s never came back to America. He hasn’t attempted to come back to America.
‘So that just shows me, you have no confidence, your team has no confidence, the American market is not really your thing and nobody gives a s*** about AJ in America.
‘Even if English fans were kind of fed up with him, I’m getting DM’s all the time saying “Kick his a** I’m from England” I have it all the time and I’m like, “s***”.

Miller went on to add that Joshua shouldn’t be mad at him for ‘getting his a** whooped’ by another man, and has said that he would open to fight the Brit down the line.
He said: ‘Soon as he wants to get in that ring I’ll get him. I don’t see how you getting your a** whooped by another man why you should be mad at me you should have shown up regardless of what man was in front of you.
‘But I feel that Eddie (Hearn) was more mad than anything, I had a contract with Eddie too so if I would have won he would have still had more money in the pocket with me so I understand why he’s mad.
‘He had both of us locked so no matter who wins or loses he was tied in. He had nothing with Andy. So Andy whooped his a** and took his belts.’
