ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Former champion boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho is facing a felony count of child abuse after turning himself in to Florida authorities this week on a warrant filed late last year.
The 49-year-old Camacho posted a $5,000 bond at the Orange County Jail in Orlando on Monday and was released.
According to the arrest affidavit, Camacho surrendered on a warrant that records show was filed by the state attorney's office in November.
State attorney's spokeswoman Danielle Tavernier said the office first received the case in May. She said a report that includes a narrative of what Camacho allegedly did was not immediately available.
It was unclear whether he's hired an attorney.
The former champion fell into drugs and other problems and recently was sentenced for burglary in Mississippi.
