According to reports, Taylor was apparently drunk when a family greeted him and asked him for a picture at the MLK Day parade in Little Rock.
Taylor agreed to take the picture and gave Toya Smith’s three young children (ages 5, 3, and 1) his championship belt to hold.
Smith says he took out his gun and threatened to kill the boys.

shot was fired into the air and Smith’s husband’s ear was injured.
Smith and her family attempted to leave, but Taylor followed them and continued to point the gun at them.
Smith said she jumped in front of Taylor and pleaded with him not to shoot h
'He was pointing at the kids, so I jumped in front of him again and said 'please don't shoot my kids,"' Smith said.
She said Taylor cursed, saying that he didn't care about the children or her and that he was going to kill her husband.
Smith said her son and two daughters were unable to sleep and cried most of the night.
Taylor, who won the International Boxing Federation middleweight title in October, faces first-degree battery and first-degree terroristic threatening charges in connection with the August incident in which Pulaski County sheriff's deputies say Taylor shot his cousin.
