WBA world championship challenger Adrien Broner was arrested just a couple of days before Christmas, as reported by TMZ Sports.
The 29-year old Ohio native was taken into custody this past Sunday in Broward County, Florida after a warrant of arrest was issued due to his failure to appear in court for a number of driving violation cases back in December of 2017.
TMZ added that according to records, Broner was booked in county jail and then released later on.
Not a welcome distraction for the former four-division world champion, as he's currently training to prepare for a title bout against reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas on January 19th.
This comes after Broner was recently sued for an unpaid jewellry bill worth over a million dollars.
