Adamek Charged With DWI After Lake Placid Crash
IBF heavyweight title contender Tomaz Adamek has been charged with driving while intoxicated after police say he crashed his car into a parked vehicle in Lake Placid, New York.Village police tell the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that the 36-year-old Jersey City resident hit the unoccupied car while making a turn late Saturday night. Officials say Adamek was checked out at a local hospital but apparently didn't suffer any injuries.
Adamek was charged with DWI. He was arraigned in village court and released after posting $1,000 bail.
His lawyer, Brian Barrett, says the crash occurred at a "dangerous intersection" where other accidents have occurred, but he has no other comment.
Adamek outpointed Steve Cunningham in a split decision in their IBF heavyweight title eliminator in Bethlehem, Pa., on Dec. 22. Adamek advanced to fight contender Kubrat Pulev, with the winner scheduled to take on IBF belt-holder Wladimir Klitschko.
