Adrien Broner Arrested After Police Spot Him Driving in SUV Riddled With Bullet Holes
Professional boxer Adrien Broner found himself in handcuffs Wednesday night after Cincinnati police found him in a vehicle riddled with bullet holes and also saw that he had an open warrant.
Broner posted a $503 bond after he was booked into the Kenton County Detention Center at 1:18 a.m. and released at 5:10 a.m, according to Fox 19.
“Kenton County court officials say the open warrant was related to a failure to appear in court on a 2014 case out of Covington.
Broner was charged in December 2014 with alcohol intoxication in a public place and disorderly conduct, court records show.
Covington police took him into custody overnight after stopping a white Chevrolet Suburban crossing into Kentucky, according to police.
The Suburban had been shot about eight times.
Broner was found behind the wheel of the rented Suburban.
Cincinnati police said they had received several reports shortly before Broner was pulled over of shots fired from residents in the area of West McMillan Street and West McMillan Avenue.
Broner told police an unknown suspect followed him from the G’Moni’s sports bar on Queen City Avenue.
As they approached West McMillan Street, the suspect fired several rounds, striking his vehicle approximately eight times, according to Broner’s account to police.
Broner was not hurt.
Covington police took him into custody on the open warrant and the SUV was held for investigation.
Police said they located a crime scene in the area of the original shots fired call.
Ten 9mm shell casings were found.”
Broner is scheduled to appear in court April 27.
