Adrien Broner reportedly showed up 3 hours late to his court date and recieved 30 days in jail.
Four-weight world champion Adrien Broner turned up late for a court hearing and will spend the next month behind bars as a result.
‘The Problem’ was due to face charges of assault over a January incident outside a bowling alley but arrived three hours late and appeared “drunk” or “hungover” according to the presiding judge in Hamilton County, Ohio.
According to the transcript of the hearing, Judge Robert Ruehlman said to Broner: “You don’t look well. You look like you have a hangover.”
“I have been sick all morning,” Broner responded. “When I finally got well, I called my lawyer.”
“It’s not a good excuse,” Ruehlman said. “He looks like he’s drunk or hungover. To coin a little boxing phrase – you’re not ducking this one.”
Holding Broner in contempt of court, Ruehlman ordered the 26-year-old be detained for 30 days, prior to standing trial.
Broner, who was last in action in stopping Ashley Theophane in April, spent 10 days incarcerated later the same month for violating his probation.
