Broner posted a $503 bond after he was booked into the Kenton County Detention Center at 1:18 a.m. and released at 5:10 a.m, according to Fox 19.

Broner was stopped by police after crossing into Kentucky in a bullet-riddled Chevrolet Suburban SUV.

Shortly before Broner was pulled over, Cincinnati police responded to several reports just before midnight Wednesday of shots fired from residents in the area of West McMillan Street and West McMicken Avenue.

Covington police then arrested him on an open warrant from 2014 for public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges and the SUV was seized.

Broner was found behind the wheel of the rented Suburban.

Cincinnati officers believe Broner was involved in a fight at G-Moni bar on Queen City Avenue in South Fairmont, and Broner's vehicle was shot in the altercation, Saunders said.

Broner's next court appearance is scheduled for April 27.

Saunders said Covington police noticed the bullet holes on the side of the vehicle and called the Cincinnati Police Department. Ten 9mm shell casings were later found around the site of the shooting, police said.

This is the latest encounter with police for Broner, who could not be immediately reached for comment. He had charges dropped for alleged felonious assault and aggravated robbery stemming from an incident at a bowling alley over a gambling dispute when the accuser failed to show up for two court dates.

He last fought in February, picking up a split-decision victory over Adrian Granados.
