MORRISON UNDERGOING TESTS FOR AIDS

Former heavyweight boxing champion Tommy Morrison, who faces drug and weapons charges, is undergoing hospital tests in Fayetteville, Ark. to determine if he has AIDS.

Morrison's attorney said he had noticed a recent change in Morrison's physical and mental conditions. Lawyer John Hudson said he asked Washington County jail officials to have Morrison tested to see if his HIV had developed into AIDS.

"I requested it in order to determine if he merely has HIV or has full-blown AIDS, as well as to determine if he's stable, in general, and well enough to be in the jail," Hudson said.

On Tuesday, a judge revoked Morrison's bond and ordered him to jail after a Thanksgiving Day arrest for drug and weapon charges. At the time, Morrison was free while awaiting trial on previous drug charges.
