The 32-year-old was hauled into Kenton County Jail by police at around 1am and spent the night in a cell after officers obtained a warrant for his arrest as a fugitive from another state.
Though it is unclear what led to his arrest, it is however said to originate from Cuyahoga County and speculated to be related to a lawsuit he lost in that jurisdiction about a year ago, when a woman claimed he assaulted her in a nightclub.
That case has been ongoing for quite some time and Broner was even tossed into jail late last year after the judge found him to be in contempt for failing to pay an $800k judgment and comply with the rest of his requirements. At the time, he claimed he was broke.
The boxing champ filed court documents in October 2020 showing evidence that he was unable to pay as he had just $13 to his name.
But, soon after, Broner flaunted a huge pile of money on Instagram, before sharing a video detailing how much cash he’s spent since 2017. The boxer was sentenced to three days in jail after being held in contempt of court.
