CINCINNATI (AP) - Former WBA super lightweight champion Adrien Broner, accused of assault and robbery, has surrendered to authorities in Ohio.

A Hamilton County prosecutor’s spokeswoman says Adrien Broner turned himself in Monday in Cincinnati. He was released after posting bond of $100,000.

Broner has been wanted on arrest warrants accusing him of felony assault and aggravated robbery. The warrants only apply in Ohio.

Broner attorney William Welsh said Monday he has not had a chance to review the case and declined to comment further.

The allegations are related to a lawsuit filed by a man who says Broner pointed a handgun at him during a January dispute over betting and knocked the man unconscious.

Broner is scheduled to be arraigned in Hamilton County Municipal Court on Tuesday.
