Browne Arrested for Domestic Violence for Fourth Time
Interim WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Marcus Browne was arrested on June 12, accused of criminal contempt and allegedly violating an order of protection his ex-girlfriend and daughter have against him.
This is the fourth time Browne in the past 18 months that Browne has been arrested for a domestic dispute. He faces felony charges of criminal contempt and aggravated family offense, as well as misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass and criminal contempt.
According to a complaint, Browne allegedly broke into the woman’s apartment at around 6 p.m. EDT on May 22 after dropping his daughter off and refused to leave. The woman called 911 following an argument after Browne asked to use the bathroom.
The defendant was arraigned in Criminal Court and released on $5,000 bond. His next court date is Aug. 12.
Browne pled guilty in January to attacking his ex-girlfriend in her apartment in September. Browne was sentenced to 26 sessions of the batterer’s intervention program and an order of protection was given to the ex. Browne is due back in court for this matter in September.
Browne has previously pled guilty to two other disorderly conduct cases involving the woman.
Browne won the interim WBA Title in January with a win over Badou Jack, but he missed out on a title shot against WBO champ Sergey Kovalev due to his legal troubles.
