Adrien Broner faces felony assault, robbery charges ahead of title fight
Junior welterweight champion Adrien Broner faces charges of felony assault and aggravated robbery after an incident at a Cincinnati bowling alley in January, police told NBC News.
Police said there are two active warrants for Broner’s arrest, both of which relate to the same incident.
TMZ Sports reports Broner allegedly used a gun to rob and assault a man outside the bowling alley after losing thousands of dollars betting on bowling games on Jan. 21.
Broner (31–2) is scheduled to defend his title against Ashley Theophane (39–6–1) on April 1. A spokesman for Spike television network told ESPN the incident was under investigation, and no decision had yet been made on canceling or postponing the fight.
When ESPN asked Broner for comment on the incident, he replied only, “I’m good.”
