Eric "Little Hands of Steel" Morel faces a charge of resisting arrest stemming from a confrontation with suburban police last weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. Morel, 26, the World Boxing Association flyweight champion, was charged Wednesday in Dane County Circuit Court.

Shorewood Hills police said Morel was a passenger in a car that was stopped at 12:18 a.m. Sunday after an officer saw it slow down and cross white fog lines on the side of the road.

As the officer was writing citations for the driver and doing a records check on Morel, he got out of the car and became belligerent, and officers eventually wrestled him to the ground and handcuffed him, police reports said. He was released from the Dane County Jail on $550 bail.

Morel successfully defended his title last June 8, defeating top challenger Jose de Jesus Lopez in an eighth-round technical knockout. It was his third title defense. The Puerto Rican native was charged last month with drunken driving and in October had his driver's license suspended for one year after refusing to take a breathalyzer test, according to court records.

Hmmm, I guess you can look at this as another example of a "standup" fighter being taken to the ground by a grappler...

"and officers eventually wrestled" "Officers", "eventually".
