World-renowned boxing superstar Adrien Broner turned himself into Ohio law enforcement early Monday morning after allegedly assaulting and robbing a man outside a bowling alley with a gun earlier this year.
Broner, 26, was wanted on two warrants stemming from the Jan. 21 incident, where he is accused of robbing the man of $12,000 after reportedly losing it while betting on bowling games. Reports then indicated that Broner, a four-division world titleholder, knocked him unconscious outside of the bowling alley and retrieved the money.
He was taken into custody at 9:32 a.m. ET Monday morning and was released less than three hours later on $100,000 bail.
Julie Wilson, who serves as chief assistant prosecutor and public information officer for the Hamilton County (OH) Prosecutor’s Office, said Broner will be asked to enter a plea Tuesday morning during his arraignment in Hamilton County’s Justice Center in Cincinnati.
Broner fought Ashley Theophane on Friday night in D.C.. However, the match was put in jeopardy because DC Boxing and Wrestling Commission refused to license Broner until his attorney and Hamilton County officials provided written assurances that he’d turn himself in after the fight.
