(FreshAsFrankie) Adrien Broner is wanted by authorities after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest because the 28-year-old boxing pro failed to show up for a hearing in his Las Vegas battery case. Broner, however, says he was completely unaware of the hearing.
Cell phone video obtained by TMZ shows Broner taking pics with fans before he loses his temper, though it’s unclear what about. As a female companion is seen trying to calm Broner down, he violently shoves her, almost knocking the woman off her feet. He then delivers a vicious punch to an unsuspecting man, knocking him out cold.
The four-time champ was cited for battery and ordered to appear in court Monday, Nov. 27. After he failed to appear, the judge issued a warrant.
According to TMZ, Broner told the site he was completely unaware there was a hearing happening, and if he had known he would have been there.
Further, the summons that was supposed to be sent to Broner was returned to the court because it was “not deliverable as addressed,” court records show.
Broner tells TMZ he’s trying to clear things up with the court.
