DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Michael Evans was arrested on felony drug charges, less than two weeks after he won his second national Golden Gloves title.

The 27-year-old boxer, considered the United States' top amateur boxer at 132 pounds, was arrested Wednesday night after police said he was involved in a crack cocaine purchase set up by an informant. He was charged with trafficking in cocaine, possession of cocaine and tampering with evidence, according to the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts Web site.

According to police reports, an informant said Evans was taking crack cocaine orders by phone. Police had the informant set up a buy in a shopping center parking lot.

Evans won the national championship in 1998 and a bronze medal at the Goodwill Games later that year. He won his first national Golden Gloves title a year later.

He was in jail from 2001-03 for a fight involving a weapon. He won his second U.S. championship this year, and his second Golden Gloves championship last month.
