World champion boxer Jermain Taylor has pleaded not guilty to charges he pointed a gun at a man's head and threatened to shoot three children at a parade in Arkansas.

A judge revoked his bond on Tuesday in a separate firearms case from August, and issued a warrant for his arrest. Prosecutors say the Taylor's arrest in Little Rock this week is evidence that he has violated the terms of his release.

Pulaski County Jail online records show Taylor hasn't yet surrendered to authorities.

Taylor was arraigned early Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a minor, and marijuana possession. He was released from the jail shortly after noon after posting a $50,000 bond.

Taylor won the IBF middleweight title in October.
