You just never know with Adrien Broner.

Four days after posting suicidal thoughts on his Instagram account, the mercurial boxer is being accused of choking a waitress at a Las Vegas nightclub early Sunday morning.

According to TMZ Sports, a female server at Drai's nightclub told police that Broner allegedly wrapped his hands around her neck and threatened, "B***h, I will knock you out."

The celebrity news site additionally reports that Broner's accuser and a witness both corroborated the waitress's account and that there's footage of the alleged incident.

Broner vowed that he's innocent of any wrongdoing in a confrontation with police and asked for a citation instead of being placed behind bars. Cops obliged, not arresting him, but handing him a citation to appear in court in the near future.

Watch that confrontation in the clip below.

Broner's accuser didn't receive any medical attention.

This alleged incident follows felony assault and aggravated robbery charges being dropped against the boxer just last month, stemming from an Ohio bowling alley incident in which Broner put hands on a man.

After sharing concerning suicidal thoughts on his social media Wednesday, Broner was reunited with his old friend Floyd Mayweather Jr., who seemingly helped his fellow boxer out of the dark place and set his sights back onto the money.

Perhaps Mayweather can help Broner with this situation as well.
