Broner To Receive 3 Days in Jail
Former four division world champion Adrien Broner will spend three days in jail after he pleaded guilty Monday to a disorderly conduct charge from an incident at a Kenton County bar back in 2014.
According to Fox News, all jail time was suspended but because Broner failed to show up for other court appearances in the case, he was charged with contempt. He was ordered to serve three days in jail and placed in handcuffs following today’s hearing.
Broner made headlines last month, when he was arrested after being stopped in an SUV that was riddled with bullet holes.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, police said they found eight bullet holes in a Chevy Suburban rented by Broner. They linked the vehicle to an early-morning incident in his home town of Cincinnati, and the boxer was taken into custody as he crossed into Kentucky.
Ten 9mm shell casings were recovered at the scene of the incident, in which Broner told police that someone shot at his car after following him when he left a bar.
Broner was not injured, but he was subsequently arrested for the open warrant for public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges from 2014.
Broner (33-2, 24 knockouts) has won titles at junior lightweight, lightweight, welterweight and, most recently, super lightweight. However, Broner was stripped of the latter belt by the World Boxing Association for weighing in over the 140-pound limit for an April 2016 fight against Ashley Theophane at the D.C. Armory.
He won that fight, as well as his next and most recent bout, a split decision over Adrian Granados in February. Broner has also beaten the rap following a number of incidents dating back to 2007, when he was charged with aggravated robbery and felonious assault. Since then, his charges have included unlawful firearm possession, witness intimidation, domestic violence, robbery, battery and assault.
