Broner free after turning himself into authorities and posting bail


Adrien BronerAdrien Broner, fresh off of his 9th round TKO over Ashley Theophane this past Friday on SPIKE TV, turned himself into authorities this morning as promised. There were some concerns that the Broner-Theophane fight would be called off after it was reported that authorities in Broner’s hometown had issued a warrant for the Cincinnati native. The warrants were in connection to an incident that took place on January 21st.


The DC Boxing and Wrestling Commission only licensed Broner after they were given written assurance that he would turn himself over to authorities by Monday. Broner did so and posted a tweet on his official Twitter account the moment he was submitting himself to police.



A few hours later, Broner posted another tweet regarding his status as a free man. It was expected that Broner would get the chance to make bail and post it.



Broner is accused of assaulting a man over a dispute at a bowling alley where he and the alleged victim were gambling over bowling games. Broner allegedly knocked the man out and took the wagered money.
