Adrien Broner is once again in trouble. The former four-division champion is in hot water once again with the law, with this instance being the most bizarre and troubling occurrence yet.
According to Cameron Knight of USA Today, Broner was found in his bullet-riddled SUV and taken in on charges stemming from an active warrant from 2014. The SUV in question may have also been involved in a potential shooting in the hours leading to Broner’s arrest, and the multiple bullet casings found within the vehicle do not draw a pleasant picture.
This comes only weeks after Broner made threatening remarks to Junior Lightweight champion Gervonta Davis and months after Broner once again promised to turn his life around for the better after narrowly defeating Adrian Granados earlier this year. If this is any indication of Broner’s mental state, it is becoming increasingly clear that he is becoming volatile to the point where he is an active and present threat to himself and others.
Last year, Broner contemplated suicide on his Instagram and was implicated in a felonious assault case he was ultimately cleared on. The troubled champion has a rap sheet dating back nearly a decade and has been unable to conduct himself as a professional in any sense of the word, constantly finding trouble when he can which has otherwise overshadowed a stellar career.
Broner has nothing scheduled following the Granados bout and any possible fight is sure to take a back seat as these events continue to develop. One thing is that Broner has always been a solid ratings driver and commands a tremendous amount of attention due to his idiocy and extracurricular behavior, but it is getting to the point where if Broner doesn’t correct his issues and fast, he might end up in jail or worse.
