Adrien Broner Sent To Jail For Violating Probation

It’s happened again. Adrien Broner has found himself in trouble with the law. The fighter, who was once seen as a pound for pound level talent, and perhaps even the future heir to Floyd Mayweather’s throne, has had a tough seven or so years. Riding high in the early part of the previous decade, legal troubles and some pretty big ring losses sent the man into a rut that the Cincinnati native seems to keep falling back into. Now Broner, whose nickname is “The Problem,” is behind bars for a probation violation, courtesy of a Cleveland judge.

Cleveland.com reports that “Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge
Sherrie Miday ordered Broner, 32, remanded to the county jail after a Tuesday
hearing, according to court records.” The order stems from an incident
where Broner was said to have assaulted a woman in a night club. Miday
apparently learned “that he (Broner) failed to enroll in an alcohol
treatment program as part of his court-ordered probation for assaulting a
woman.” Broner was originally “charged with several felonies, but
ultimately received probation after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge
of assault.”

To make matters worse for Broner, he has another court date
in the same court on the 26th of this month, this time regarding a civil suit
launched by the same woman he is said to have assaulted. The judge in that case
“will decide whether to hold him in contempt for failing to
cooperate.” Broner’s accuser claimed he put his weight on her and kissed
her forcefully at a Cleveland night club back in 2018. Needless to say, the
judge in the civil case, Nancy Margaret Russo, awarded the woman eight hundred
thousand dollars from Broner, money which the fighter reportedly hasn’t coughed
up.

According to Cleveland.com, “Broner has appealed Russo’s
decision to the 8th District Court of Appeals, which has not said whether it
will take up the appeal.” All of this is sadly less than unusual for
Broner, whose life appears to be a constant state of disarray. He’s earned much
money in the ring, but seems to be plagued by irresponsibility and a habit of
breaking the law. Broner, whose record stands at 34-4-1, last fought in
February and hasn’t been penciled in for another bout since that time. He has
won titles in four weight divisions throughout what has been a successful, if
perhaps disappointing, professional career.
