Broner Arrested Before Christmas
Adrien Broner found himself in jail for a very brief time right before Christmas
According to a report from TMZ Sports, Broner was arrested in Broward County, Florida days before Christmas Day after a warrant for his arrest was issued for failure to appear in court weeks prior. The 29-year-old Broner was booked in county jail, but released from jail.
The arrest stems from last year when Broner was arrested for driving without a driver’s license, speeding and having no registration or proof of insurance. Broner didn’t appear in court several times which led to another arrest back in July for failure to appear.
Earlier in the month, Broner was sued for failing to pay more than a million dollars owed in jewelry payments to Pristine Jewelers NY. Broner had only paid a reported $100,000 out of a total of $1.252 million that he initially owed.
Broner is currently scheduled to fight in Las Vegas in January 19, 2019 when he takes on Manny Pacquiao. The fight, set to headline a pay-per-view at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, will be for Pacquiao’s WBA “regular” welterweight title in the champion’s first since signing a deal with Premier Boxing Champions and his first fight in the United States since 2016.
