Police say boxer Adrien Broner was stopped in a bullet-riddled car then arrested on an outstanding warrant in Kentucky.

The 28-year-old boxer from Cincinnati was stopped Thursday after reports of shots fired. Broner had crossed into Kentucky and told police an unknown person fired several rounds at his vehicle.

Broner wasn’t hurt, but police arrested him on a warrant for failing to appear for a 2014 court case in Covington, Kentucky, on charges of alcohol intoxication in a public place and disorderly conduct.

He was released from Kenton County jail in Covington after posting bond.

His attorney William Welsh said on Thursday he hadn’t heard from him.

Last year, Broner served jail time after being tardy for his trial on charges of assault and robbery that were later dismissed.
