Adrien Broner Has Ohio Assault Charge Dismissed

by David P. Greisman

An assault case against Adrien Broner in Ohio was dismissed yesterday after his accuser failed to show up for the trial, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The case dated back to May 27, 2012, a little less than two months before Broner fought Vicente Escobedo. Broner was accused of punching the man in the face. Had Broner been convicted, he faced up to 180 days in jail, the newspaper reported.

Another assault charge dating to November 2012 was dropped down earlier this year to a count of disorderly conduct, according to online court records. That court case was closed in April.

Meanwhile in Miami-Dade County in Florida, a misdemeanor battery case remains open against Broner, according to online court records. He was arrested in March and accused of biting a security guard in the forearm as the guard tried to break up a fight taking place outside of a Miami Beach hotel.

Broner, 24, is 27-1 with 22 knockouts and 1 no contest. That lone defeat came just this past weekend, when Broner lost a unanimous decision and his welterweight world title to Marcos Maidana.

Broner also previously held a world title at 130 pounds, and he still has a belt at 135.

A humbling beating from Chino, 2 dropped cases.. let's hope this is the intro to a movie titled: The Maturation of Adrien Broner

Honestly, Broner was a more of a gimmick than anything else...

Big mouth will get in trouble again and wind up back in court.
