WBA junior middleweight champ Austin Trout was arrested early Tuesday morning in El Paso on suspicion of public intoxication.  Police were called out to a Taco Cabana after a fight broke out  around 4:30am.  Trout told KTSM in Las Cruces he was not drunk and expects the charge to be dismissed.

The arrest comes a month after Trout beat Miguel Cotto in New York City.  Trout hopes to unify the light middleweight title in May.
