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.
