According to a report released by TMZ.com,  WBA junior welterweight champion Adrien Broner is facing charges of felonious assault and aggravated robbery after an incident that allegedly took place at 3:30 am on January 21, involving Broner and a male victim who he was said to be gambling with earlier in the evening.

The victim claims that he and Broner were engaged in a high-stakes game of bowling where large sums of money were on the line and Broner was allegedly losing big. According to the victim, he decided he had enough and was ready to leave with his winnings when Broner became infuriated and waited for him outside the establishment where Broner was said to have allegedly attacked the man.  

The victim went on to claim Broner repeatedly punched him and according to court documents Broner had:

“then retrieved a handgun from his vehicle, approached the victim, demanded money, then struck (the victim) in the face with a closed fist a second time, this time causing the victim to be rendered unconscious.”

Broner was said to have reached into the man's pocket and took money while the victim lay unconscious. The victim was said to be hospitalized receiving stitches to close a wound on his face sustained during the attack. 

Broner is scheduled to fight Ashley Theophane on April 1 and this news could put that fight in serious jeopardy. Broner was in the news earlier this week responding to comments made by Floyd Mayweather Jr. regarding Broner's lack of maturity. Despite Broner's claims that he is a new man and changed fighter, he has continued to show otherwise.

It's important to remember that Broner is innocent until proven guilty but this surely does nothing to improve the public's perception of him regardless of the outcome.
