Broner Accused of Driving Drunk; Assault Case Dropped

by David P. Greisman

Former three-division titleholder Adrien Broner has a court date set for April 9 after allegedly driving under the influence earlier this year, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.

“Broner refused the breath test, an act that could result in his drivers license suspended for a year if convicted,” the article said.

He is facing one count of operating a vehicle while impaired and one count of committing a marked lanes violation, according to online court records.

The case dates back to Jan. 11, but apparently is only surfacing now in the newspaper because of a court hearing that was held March 11.

Meanwhile, an assault accusation against Broner from November 2014 was dismissed this past February, according to online court records.

Broner won a wide decision over John Molina Jr. on NBC last week on the debut card of “Premier Boxing Champions.” Now a junior welterweight, the 25-year-old is 30-1 with 22 KOs and 1 no contest.

Broner hopefully can put this behind him and start to take his career seriously before its too late.

Broner definitely needs to grow up. If broner wants to be at that elite level, then he has to buckle down and live a fighters life-style. There are no exceptions.
