Browner allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend's house and threatened to kill her.
Former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner was reportedly arrested Sunday near Azusa, California, approximately 30 miles east of Los Angeles, after he allegedly broke into the home of an ex-girlfriend who has a restraining order against him.
According to reports, officers responded to a call at 10:07 a.m. on Sunday morning related to a man who broke into a home through a locked window. Browner was identified as the intruder and allegedly physically forced his ex-girlfriend back into the home when she attempted to escape. After allegedly threatening to kill the victim inside her residence, Browner reportedly stole a $20,000 Rolex and fled the scene before police arrived.
He was arrested later on Sunday afternoon on multiple charges including kidnapping, burglary, false imprisonment and a violation of a restraining order. NBC Los Angeles reports that Browner had a previous relationship with the victim and had previously been arrested for domestic violence and was restrained from the victim, according to police. The former Super Bowl champion has also been arrested for child endangerment as well as possession of cocaine in the past two years.
Browner, 33, is best known for his three seasons as a member of Seattle's Legion of Boom, but he won a Super Bowl ring with the New England Patriots in 2014 against his former team, and spent the following year with the Saints. He has not played in the NFL since the 2015 season.
