ATLANTA -- Cincinnati boxer Adrien Broner was booked into Atlanta's Fulton County Jail on a misdemeanor charge of sexual battery early Tuesday morning, according to jail records.

The 28-year-old was scheduled to appear before a judge at 9 a.m. Tuesday, TMZ Sports reports. Police told TMZ that a woman has accused Broner of inappropriately groping her at the Lenox Square shopping center. 

Last April, police pulled Broner over in an SUV riddled with bullet holes in Covington, Kentucky, and arrested him on an open warrant for a 2014 public intoxication charge.

That was less than three weeks after he pleaded not guilty to aggravated robbery and felonious assault when a West Chester Township man accused him of assaulting him outside Madison Bowl in Oakley.

Broner's criminal history also includes charges of robbery (2010 and 2007), aggravated robbery (2007), felonious assault (2007), gun charges (2007 and 2008), domestic violence (2008), intimidation of a witness (2008) and battery (2013). All charges, with the exception of the battery charge from Florida, came from Hamilton County.
