Adrien Broner, who after his controversial win on February 18th claimed that he had turned his life around, was arrested this morning 4/20/17.
It seems Police pulled Broner over in an SUV riddled with bullet holes and arrested him early Thursday morning in Covington, according to Cincinnati Police Lt. Steve Saunders. Broner was booked in the Kenton County jail and released around 5 a.m., jail records show.
Jail records indicate that Broner was arrested on an open warrant early Thursday morning and charged with “failure to appear,” a misdemeanor charge. The open warrant was for a public intoxication charge from 2014.
Saunders said Covington police noticed the bullet holes on the side of the vehicle and called the Cincinnati Police Department. He did not know the exact number of bullet holes.
Cincinnati Police officers believe Broner was involved in a fight at G-Moni bar on Queen City Avenue in South Fairmont, and Broner’s car was shot in the altercation, Saunders said that several 911 callers reported multiple shots fired between vehicles at the intersection of W. McMillan Street and W. McMicken Avenue.
Broner has a long history of legal trouble including charges of robbery (2010 and 2007), aggravated robbery (2007), felonious assault (2007), gun charges (2007 and 2008), domestic violence (2008), intimidation of a witness (2008) and battery (2013). All charges, with the exception of the battery charge from Florida, came from Hamilton County.
Broner appears like he will go down as just another could have been athlete, Broner had tremendous ability at one time in his career, unfortunately, like so many other athletes he has chosen to get in repeated trouble with the law instead of perfecting his craft.
Cincinnati has had an unfortunate history of Professional Boxers who never lived up to their potential, and it seems Broner will now add his name to the list.
