According to court documents acquired by TMZ, the Cincinnati Police Department has issued an arrest warrant for Adrien Broner.
Broner is being charged with assault and aggravated robbery after allegedly punching a man outside of a bowling alley and then robbing him while holding a handgun.
The incident happened around 3:30am on January 21st. The victim told police that Adrian Broner became upset after the man walked away from a high stake betting session at the bowling alley. Broner allegedly lost thousands of dollars.
As per court documents and according to the victim, Broner waited for him outside and punched him in the face and neck. He 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 then observed taking money out of the victim’s pockets while he was unconscious before fleeing the scene.”
Officials note that Broner is a pro boxer — and “professionally trained on how to cause serious physical harm to another person.”

ESPN’s Dan Rafael contacted Broner for comment. The Boxer posted his response on his Instagram account:
Adrien Broner is currently the WBA light welterweight champion. His next fight is scheduled for April but it is unclear if it will go on as scheduled.
