Boxer "Macho" Camacho Arrested on Burglary, Possession Charges

Three time world boxing champion Hector "Macho" Camacho, Sr. was arrested by Gulfport police Thursday, but now faces drug charges in Biloxi.

Around noon Thursday, Gulfport Police arrested Camacho at a Biloxi casino. He's charged with one count of commercial burglary that allegedly took place December 2nd on Courthouse Road.

During the arrest, officers say they found 10 ecstacy tablets on him, and are charging Camacho with felony possession of a controlled substance.

Gulfport Police Chief Steve Barnes says after they charged Camacho with burglary, they brought him back to Biloxi to face the other charge.

Camacho is in the Harrison County Detention Center tonight with a $75,000 bond.

Meanwhile, the state's boxing commissioner John Lewis says the arrest could impact Camacho's ability to fight in Mississippi in the future. His boxing status will now be placed under review.
