WBA ex-titleholder jailed in Ohio on probation violation
CINCINNATI (AP) Former WBA super lightweight champion Adrien Broner has been jailed in Cincinnati, this time for violating probation in a reckless driving case last year.
Hamilton County records show the 26-year-old boxer was jailed Tuesday morning and is scheduled to serve 10 days after a judge revoked his probation for a count of reckless operation of a motor vehicle.
A message was left Tuesday for his attorney.
Broner appeared in court April 5 after turning himself in the day before to face assault and robbery charges. He was released April 4 after posting bond of $100,000.
A man has sued Broner, claiming Broner pointed a handgun at him during a January dispute over betting and knocked the man unconscious.
