Over the last 24 hours Adrien Broner has made a series of questionable posts on Instagram. After his most recent posts, some his friends started fearing for his well-being and contacted local police, reports TMZ.

Yesterday Broner posted a few items where he said that people were losing faith and started parting ways with him. He soon thereafter posted that he doesn't know who he can trust anymore. And then today things appeared to get much more dire with these following posts.

These latest post prompted some of Broner's friends to contact police as they became fearful that Broner might make an attempt on his own life. Best case scenario is that this is some sort of sick, twisted joke coming from Broner. Worst case scenario is that it's a sincere cry for help.
