10:10 AM PT -- 2/12 -- Kent Schaffer, Charlo's attorney, tells TMZ ... "A relative went to police and said Jermall struck him up back in September 2021 in Fort Bend. Despite the fact that plenty of witnesses were present, no investigation was done. This is an attempt to shake Jermall down for money and it's not going to happen. If these charges are not dismissed Jermall will be acquitted."
4:24 PM PT -- 2/11 -- According to court documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, Charlo's arrest stems from an alleged September 5, 2021 incident in which he's accused of "punching or grabbing" a man.
Officials in the docs say the man was injured in the alleged altercation. They also say the man was a member of Charlo's "family or household."
Boxing star Jermall Charlo is in trouble with the law again ... TMZ Sports has learned he was arrested on Friday in Texas.
A Fort Bend County Jail official tells us ... the 31-year-old was booked at around 1:30 PM CT after a warrant for his arrest was issued by the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office.
According to jail records, Charlo was booked on a felony charge of assaulting a family/household member with a previous conviction. His bond was set at $10,000, though records show he's still in custody.
Details of the allegations against Charlo are currently unclear ... we're working on it.
This is the second time Charlo has been arrested in the past year -- as we previously reported, he was taken into custody in San Antonio in August 2021 after he was accused of stealing from a waitress during a dispute at a bar.
