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.
Covington police took him into custody overnight after stopping a white Chevrolet Suburban crossing into Kentucky, according to police. There were eight bullet holes in the auto, according to police, the newspaper reported.
According to police, Broner told them someone shot at the vehicle after following him from a bar in Cincinnati. Broner was not injured.
Broner's next court appearance is scheduled for April 27.
Broner boasts a 33-2 career record in the ring and has held championships at the junior lightweight, lightweight, welterweight and super lightweight levels. Earlier this week, Showtime announced it was making plans to feature Broner in the main event of a card this summer.
This is the latest encounter with police for Broner.
He was in and out of court a year ago on felonious assault and aggravated robbery charges related to a gambling dispute that were eventually dismissed when the victim failed to appear in court twice.
Broner has been released from custody and is due back in court later this month. The case was eventually dropped when the accuser failed to show up to testify.
