Garcia, 25, was arrested at 5:45 p.m. after a driver who dropped him off at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills called police, according to police.

The hotel decided to press charges once police arrived, although the specific nature of the damage and Garcia’s behavior was not immediately clear.

After being booked into the Beverly Hills Police Department jail, police said Garcia complained of a medical issue and was subsequently transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

“The BHPD took him to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment and, as far as we know, he may be charged with public intoxication,” said Garcia’s attorney, Darin Chavez.

Garcia (25-1, 20 KOs) faces a suspension from the New York Athletic Commission after he tested positive for the banned substance Ostarine in the lead-up to his majority decision win over Devin Haney in April.

Garcia knocked down Haney three times, but was ineligible to win the WBC super lightweight title after he missed weight by 3.2 pounds.
