Adrien Broner Arrested In Kentucky With Outstanding Warrants
Former world champion boxer Adrien Broner was arrested again Sunday morning in Kentucky.
Broner, 32, was reportedly arrested for an outstanding warrant in Ohio, stemming from violation of his probation from a 2019 plea deal, his home newspaper Cincinatti.com reported.
Broner was brought in by police around 1 a.m. Sunday, but was later released on a $25,000 cash bond, according to Kenton County court records.
He was scheduled to return to court on Monday.
Cuyahoga County Court issued a warrant for Broner’s arrest in August after violating his probation sentence. Broner pleaded guilty in 2019 to misdemeanor charges of assault and unlawful restraint.
“The Cincinnati native was accused in the lawsuit and a criminal case of pinning a woman he didn’t know on a couch in June 2018 and kissing her against her will as she struggled to free herself,” the report said.
“The lawsuit said one of Broner’s friends pulled him off the woman after someone took a photo of the assault.”
He was sentenced to probation.
Broner was scheduled for his probation violation hearing in court on March 23, but didn’t appear until April 26 after another arrest warrant and letter of apprehension.
His probation sentencing was extended to April 2022.
The boxer was additionally ordered to enter an “intensive outpatient treatment program,” which he failed to do, so a second warrant for his arrest was issued in August.
Broner could spend six months in jail time or get more restrictive sanctions, according to Cuyahoga County jail.
The welterweight also faced separate charges in October 2016, April 2017 and February 2018.
He has not fought in the ring since February where he won a unanimous decision victory over Jovanie Santiago. Before that, he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao in January 2019.
