Body cam video shows Adrien Broner arrest
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Covington police released body cam video of the early morning Thursday arrest of boxer Adrien Broner.
Police took him into custody after stopping a white Chevrolet Suburban crossing into Kentucky.
Broner was driving the rented Suburban, which had been shot about eight times, according to police.
He asked officers to give him a citation instead of arresting him for a warrant from 2014.
Officers told him that he would just be taken in for about an hour.
"Man…and I just got shot at," Broner said. "I just almost got killed and now they're taking me to jail."
Broner was fully cooperative, although sometimes yelling at a friend to come and get him out of jail. Police did tell him to calm down a few times, but he never acted unruly.
After being handcuffed, he asked the officers to loosen them because he said he has an upcoming fight.
"Brother to brother, man. I'm not running nowhere. "I'm a celebrity and you're really going to hurt my hands like this? And I fight in June."
"You help us out, we'll help you out," one officer responded.
He was even heard joking with the officers multiple times.
"I got two guns on me. My arms. That's what I do for a living," he said.
While standing at the police car before being put in he received a phone call.
"That's... that's just my baby," Broner said. "That's one of my girlfriends... that's my second wife."
The officers laughed.
"You've got two wives? Damn, I'm living life wrong, son," the officer said.
Broner was booked into the Kenton County Detention Center at 1:18 a.m. Thursday and released at 5:10 a.m. after posting $503 bond, jail records show.
The warrant for Broner arrest was issued after he failed to appear in court on a 2014 case, according to Kenton County court officials and Covington Assistant Police Chief Brian Steffen.
He was charged in December 2014 with alcohol intoxication in a public place and disorderly conduct, court records show.
Broner, 28, is scheduled to appear in court April 27.
