More Info on Adrien Broner’s Alleged Forearm Bite

by David P. Greisman

Adrien Broner allegedly bit a security guard in the forearm as the guard tried to break up a fight that was taking place outside of the Fontainebleau Hotel, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by BoxingScene.com from the Miami Beach Police Department.

Officers were called to the hotel at about 3:39 a.m. on Monday for a report of an altercation between hotel security and multiple men. Upon arriving, police were told that Broner, a 24-year-old Cincinnati man named Michael M. Owensby and “additional unknown males” had been fighting on the valet ramp of the hotel.

A security guard had come up from behind Broner to try to pull him away from the fight.

“While doing this, [Broner] bit the victim in the right forearm,” wrote the police officer in his arrest affidavit. “I observed the injury, which was visible on his forearm.”

Security guards told police that Broner had been detained after a short struggle, which is how he remained until officers arrived and took him into custody.

“I asked [Broner] what happened, and he stated that he did not hit anyone,” the officer wrote.

Owensby, meanwhile, was also charged with one count of battery. He is accused of pushing a security guard “in the chest with both hands in an attempt to assist” Broner as the fight was being broken up.

Broner was released on $1,500 bail, as was Owensby, according to online court records. Broner posted about his arrest on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook on Monday evening.

“They tried to keep a nigga locked down in MIA,” Broner wrote on Twitter at about 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

The 23-year-old fighter is coming off a February win over Gavin Rees that brought his record to 26-0 with 22 knockouts. He is expected to face welterweight titleholder Paulie Malignaggi in his next bout, potentially in June.
