After defeating Ashley Theophane on Friday, Broner spent the rest of the weekend relaxing before he kept his word and returned to Cincinnati to face a couple of felony charges -- stemming from a violent armed robbery at a local bowling alley. In that incident Broner has been accused of assaulting a man before robbing him of $12,000 while brandishing a pistol.

That incident, and the subsequent arrest warrant, put his televised fight against Theophane in some jeopardy. But Broner was ultimately granted a license in D.C. after the commission received assurances from Broner's attorney and Hamilton County officials that he would surrender himself after the fight.

Hamilton County online records indicate that Broner was taken into custody at 9:32am, where he was expected to post $100,000 bail (of which he only needed to come up with 10%), before being freed. Obviously coming up with the bond wasn't an issue for Broner, who was just on Instagram flashing a smile. So, you know, it's all good...
