Olympic bronze medalist boxer Oshae Jones facing criminal charges after weekend incident
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Olympic bronze medalist boxer and Toledoan Oshae Jones is facing three criminal charges after an incident in Toledo Sunday morning.
According to a police affidavit, officers were trying to break up what they called “a large scene of people participating in a course of disorderly conduct.” The exact location of the incident was not listed.
That’s when TPD officers allege that Jones failed to obey their orders and began resisting arrest by pulling away from officers as they tried to handcuff her.
She pleaded not guilty to charges of resisting arrest, obstructing official business, and failure to disperse Monday in Toledo Municipal Court.
She was released and is due back in court later this month.
A Toledo Police spokesperson told 13abc Wednesday the department can’t release any information regarding the case because there is an open Internal Affairs investigation into the incident. TPD can release additional details once that investigation is complete,
13abc’s I-Team went to the last-listed address for the Olympian for comment but no one answered.
Jones won a bronze medal in the welterweight division at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. The mayor honored with a key to the city and a parade last summer. She’s been an active member in community events in recent years.
