Broner sued for sexual battery stemming from February arrest.
Adrien Broner is reportedly being sued for sexual battery by the woman who claimed he inappropriately groped her at the Lenox Square shopping center in Georgia back in February.
According to TMZ Sports, the woman behind the suit is Kaila Crews, who alleges that Broner approached her and "swiped his hand across [her] private parts." Crews' lawsuit states, "At no point had Plaintiff given [Broner] permission to touch any part of her body." Crews claims she suffered emotional distress from the incident and says Broner needs to pay up for any injuries she experienced, along with pain and suffering.
The 28-year old boxer has denied the allegations from the jump, but he was still arrested for misdemeanor sexual battery shortly after the alleged incident. Investigators are still collecting evidence pertaining to the criminal case.
Broner has had several run ins with the law in recent years, including robbery charges and an arrest for allegedly beating up a guy at a bowling alley in early 2016. He was also cited for misdemeanor battery after allegedly choking a nightclub waitress in Las Vegas in 2016.
The four-time champion last fought in July against Mikey Garcia which resulted in a unanimous decision loss. His next fight is scheduled to take place on April 21st at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against Jessie Vargas.
