Adrien Broner arrested for attending Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury weigh-in at MGM

Adrien Broner

Adrien Broner was arrested on Friday for attending the weigh-in to the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury fight and allegedly refusing to leave.

TMZ Sports shared news of Broner’s arrest and says that Broner was told in November he was not allowed to visit the MGM. The boxer apparently ignored that order and showed up to Friday’s weigh-in. He was told to leave but allegedly did not comply with the order.

Broner was reportedly detained by hotel security before Las Vegas police came and took over. Broner was then taken away in handcuffs and transported to the county jail to be processed. He’s set to be released with a misdemeanor trespassing citation.

Broner, 30, is 33-4-1 in his boxing career. He has fought just twice in the last two years and is 0-2-1 in his last three fights, including a loss to Manny Pacquiao in January of 2019.

Broner has been arrested numerous times over the last several years. He had an arrest warrant issued last year for failure to appear in court.
