Adrien Broner denies groping allegations, says he rejected a picture request

Adrien Broner was arrested Tuesday for allegedly groping a woman in an Atlanta mall and has since denied the allegations.

The former four-division world champion, who has lived up to his boxing nickname of "The Problem," implied the woman was upset at him for turning down a request.

"I didn't touch nobody," Broner told Channel 2 Action News after bonding out of jail.

"She wanted to take a picture and I didn't want to take a picture."

"Just cause I voted for trump don't mean I'm going around grabbing pu*****," Broner said on Instagram.

While Broner (33-3, 24 KO's), 28, of Cincinnati, Ohio, is expected to return to the ring on Apr. 21, his opponent is also in some legal trouble.

Former lightweight world titleholder Omar Figueroa (27-0-1, 19 KO's), 28, of Weslaco, Texas, was arrested by the Indian Wells Police Department at 3:14 a.m. on Jan. 29 for alleged DUI, and released on his own recognizance at 6:28 a.m.

Figueroa is coming off a third-round TKO of former titlist Robert Guerrero, who he knocked down five times before referee Ron Lipton mercifully halted the massacre.
