KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) - Professional boxer Adrien Broner will spend the next three days behind bars.

Broner pleaded guilty Monday to a disorderly conduct charge from an incident at a Kenton County bar back in 2014.

All jail time was suspended.

But because Broner failed to show up for other court appearances in the case, he was charged with contempt. He was ordered to serve three days in jail and placed in handcuffs following today's hearing.

The onetime four-division champion, who lives in Cincinnati, was arrested on an open warrant back in April, after being found in a vehicle riddled with bullets.
