WBN Photo: Adrien Broner faces a ‘problem’ following battery arrest

WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner has been arrested in Miami and released on $1500 bond after being charged by police with battery yesterday.

Broner, 23, posted this mugshot of his arrest on his official Twitter page, before later deleting it and it is thought the two-weight world champion was kept in custody for a few hours following the incident that led to his time in custody.

Initial reports are that Broner was a participant in a fracas which involved more than one person, although nothing at this stage has been confirmed by the fighter or his representatives.

‘The Problem’ is currently lined-up to fight for the WBA welterweight title in June against Paulie Malignaggi and holds a standout 26-fight winning record with 22 stoppages.
