Police arrested former welterweight champion boxer, Adrien Broner, early Thursday morning.

Broner was picked up in his hometown of Cincinnati for an open warrant for public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges back in 2014.

Police officials said the 27-year-old fighter was pulled over in a bullet-riddled SUV.

According to Cincinnati.com, Broner told officers, an unidentified suspect, who had followed him from an area bar, opened fire at his rented Chevrolet Suburban

Hours after his arrest the boxer, who goes by the nickname ‘The Problem’ secured his release from custody, posting a $503 bond.

The arrest is Broner’s latest run-in with the law. He had a case for felonious assault, and aggravated robbery charges related to a gambling dispute dismissed last year after the victim failed to appear in court twice.

Police also arrested Adrien Broner in January 2016 over an alleged confrontation in the Madison Bowl parking lot.

Broner, a four-time world champion in four different weight classes, has a 33-2 career record.

In his last fight, Broner won a split-decision over Adrian Granados.

Broner is slated to appear for an April 27th court date for Thursday’s arrest.
