Former Boxer, Son of Convicted Mobster, Arrested

Rhode Island State Police say a former boxer whose father was convicted in a mob killing has been arrested on charges of violating his bail and a protective order.

Police say 43-year-old Jarrod Tillinghast, of Providence, turned himself in on Tuesday. The Providence Journal reports ( that he was wanted for violating his ex-wife's no-contact order. Police say that triggered a bail violation for a pending DUI charge.

A message left for his lawyer was not immediately returned.

Tillinghast is the son of Gerald Tillinghast, who served time in prison for a mob-related killing.
