Adrien Broner Indicted on Assault and Robbery Charges

Boxer better get a grip on his life.

Published April 15, 2016

Even when Adrien Broner wins in the ring, he's losing in life.

Fresh off his victory over Ashley Theophane on April 1, the cocky boxer turned himself in to police in Ohio on felonious assault and aggravated robbery charges, stemming from a January incident in which he allegedly beat up and robbed a man outside of an Ohio bowling alley with a gun.

Though, Broner posted $100,000 bond to be released earlier this month, he was indicted Thursday on those assault and robbery charges.

According to the Associated Press, the former WBA super lightweight champion pointed a gun in a man's direction before knocking him out cold. With Thursday's indictment, Broner could be looking at a maximum prison sentence of 3 to 10 years for the aggravated robbery charge, as reported by the AP. The second-degree charges of felonious assault and robbery carries sentences of two to eight years.

All this comes after Broner already did jail time in Cincinnati earlier this month for violating his probation in a separate reckless driving incident.

Jesus, take the wheel.

For as much as Broner opens his mouth, it's time he gets a grip and straighten out his life for good.
