Boxing superstar Adrien Broner will not be prosecuted for allegedly pulling a gun on a man and violently robbing him earlier this year … TMZ Sports has confirmed.
We broke the story … Broner was charged with felonious assault and aggravated robbery after allegedly getting into a fight over a bet at a Cincinnati bowling alley back in January.
A jury trial was scheduled to begin Wednesday, but according to a Hamilton County court clerk, the prosecutor’s witness was a no-show … so the judge dropped the charges.
Broner was present in court with his lawyer.
It seems like AB is completely off the hook in this case — the alleged victim dropped his civil suit against him a few months ago.
A rep for the boxer tells us, “We are happy that the charges were dropped. It was a major setback, but we’re glad we can move on from this and focus on getting AB back in the ring.”
