Adrien Broner to serve 10-day jail sentence for violating probation and reckless driving

Adrien Broner is serving a 10-day jail sentence after violating his probation of a 2015 case.

Adrien Broner has once again broken the law, but this time, he was not able to get away as he was booked and is to serve a 10-day jail time for a previous violation of his probation and reckless driving.

TMZ first reported that Broner was sentenced to serve six months probation back in 2015 after he was arrested for drunk driving to which he did not contest. Court documents stated that Broner violated his probation in November 2015 that led to his incarceration at the Hamilton County in Ohio.

On the other hand, ESPN reported that the incident is not part of the felony assault and aggravated robbery that Broner was also charged with. It was reported that Broner allegedly assaulted a man at gunpoint and robbed him with $12,000 in the early morning of Jan. 21. The incident took place at a bowling alley in Cincinnati.

Broner allegedly lost money on a bet that led to the incident. The 26-year old Broner issued two warrants for arrest but was still allowed to fight in Washington D.C. after issuing an assurance through his lawyers that he will turn himself immediately after his fight against Ashley Theophane. Broner defeated Theophane via knockout but the Cincinnati native stripped of his title before his fight.

As promised, Broner turned himself to the authorities and appeared before a judge last April 4, where he pleaded not guilty to the felony charges. He was then released the following day after posting a bail of $100,000.

As a boxer, Broner is considered as the next best thing in the sport having been named as  a four-weight world champion, having previously held the WBC lightweight, WBO super featherweight and WBA welterweight and super lightweight titles.

He was named as the number six pound for pound boxer by The Ring magazine and carried a fight record of 32 wins and two losses.
