This is bad for the business of ‘About Billions’ if true, just days from a huge nationally televised fight.
According to TMZ Sports — a warrant has been issued for Adrien Broner — after he allegedly beat and robbed a man at gunpoint outside a bowling alley.
A source with knowledge of the incident confirms … Broner has been charged with felonious assault and aggravated robbery and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Multiple sources connected to the case tell us the incident in question went down around 3:30 AM on January 21st — after Broner and another man had been making high stakes bets with each other at the lanes.
The alleged victim told police … Broner had lost thousands of dollars in bowling bets and was pissed when the alleged victim decided to call it a night and go home with his winnings.
Our sources say … the man claims Broner waited for him outside of the alley and punched him in the face and neck — nearly knocking the man out cold.
The alleged victim told cops Broner went to his car and got a gun at one point — and when he came back, he forcibly took all the money in the man’s wallet … a ton of cash.
Broner is of course innocent until proven guilty, but the accusation is just another ugly stain on an already damaged reputation — coming right after his Walmart fiasco.
Broner is scheduled to defend his super lightweight title next Friday night, against Ashley Theophane, in Washington D.C.
