Adrien Broner has landed in hot water with the authorities once again.
Broner was arrested on an open warrant and booked into the Kenton County Detention Center in Covington, Kentucky, just outside of his hometown of Cincinnati yesterday, though he was released a few hours later after posting a $503 bond.
Broner was stopped by Kentucky police after crossing into the state in a bullet-riddled SUV. According to The Cincinnati Enquirer, police linked Broner and the rented vehicle to reports of shots being fired on a street in Cincinnati, where 10 9-mm shell casings were found at the scene. There were eight bullet holes in the car, the newspaper reported.
The former world champion told police the bullet holes came as a result of somebody following Broner and shooting the car after following him from a bar in Cincinnati, according to police. Broner did not appear to be injured.
Police then arrested him on an open warrant from 2014 for public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges and the SUV was seized. Broner is scheduled for a court appearance on April 27.
Broner is a four-division titleholder, having won world titles at junior lightweight, lightweight, super lightweight and welterweight. Broner has fought once in the past 12 months, a split decision victory over Adrian Granados back in February.
After repeated numerous run-ins with the law, Broner, nicknamed "The Problem," said he wanted to be a positive role model. He also created headlines late last year after he had been posting cryptic messages on social media hinting that he would commit suicide. Broner had been sentenced to 30 days in jail last summer after missing his appointed trial time for a January incident outside of a Cincinnati bowling alley which saw him charged with felony assault and aggravated robbery charges.
