Brandon Browner faces life in prison after attempted murder charge
Former NFL player Brandon Browner is facing life in prison after being charged with attempted murder in a case involving his ex-girlfriend.
Browner was arrested on Sunday after allegedly breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment in La Verne, Calif. and beating her up. He allegedly “chased the victim, dragged her and then smothered her in a carpet.” He also stole a Rolex before fleeing, though he did get arrested.
Browner is being charged with one count of attempted murder, first-degree residential robbery, first-degree burglary, person present, and false imprisonment, according to TMZ Sports. He also faces two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child.
Browner, 33, played in the NFL from 2011-2015. He was a member of the Seattle Seahawks for three seasons, including 2011 when he had six interceptions and was a key member of the “Legion of Boom.”
Browner was arrested last year for allegedly making criminal threats against a woman. He was arrested a month later for cocaine. He failed multiple PED tests during his playing career.
