Trouble outside the ring continues to follow former four-division titlist Adrien Broner, who was arrested last week on an open warrant in Kentucky after the rented SUV he was driving was pulled over with eight bullet holes in the side. 

Broner (33-2, 24 KOs), who was released a few hours later last Thursday after posting a $503 bond, told police someone shot at his car after following him from a Cincinnati bar, where 10 nine-millimeter shell casings were found at the scene. Broner was not injured. 

The 27-year-old, who is scheduled for court on April 27 in regards to the 2014 warrant for public intoxication and disorderly conduct, laughed off the shooting scare while appearing on Saturday in Brooklyn, New York, at the Shawn Porter-Andre Berto welterweight fight. 

"They only sent 30 shots at me, and they still missed," Broner told a group of media members on the street outside the Barclays Center before being hurried into a waiting car. "I've got great defense."

Broner, who has a long history of trouble with the law, including a pair of jail sentences, went into much greater detail about the recent shooting scare while talking to TMZ Sports on Sunday. 

"They try to kill me because they jealous of my success," Broner said. "Every fake killer or every killer wants a celebrity on their list. I was once them before. The higher the celebrity you've got on your list, that's how people respect you."

Broner downplayed questions about whether he's scared for his safety, saying, "This ain't my first rodeo, man, I've been on the bull a long time." The father of seven children did admit that moving his family away from his native Cincinnati would be a smart move.

"Listen, don't get me wrong, I'm not worried, I'm not scared of this because I've been through this before," Broner said. "At the end of the day, I want the best for my children. I want the best for my family. I want the best for my siblings. So now all I have to do is take myself out of the equation. 

"It's just about moving different. The best thing I think is to move away but don't move that far." 

Broner hasn't fought since February when he won a split decision over Adrian Granados. In his previous fight, a TKO victory over Ashley Theophane, he was stripped of his 140-pound title for not making weight. After the fight, he returned to Cincinnati and turned himself in on outstanding felony assault charges. 

Last October, Broner made negative headlines when he sent a series of cryptic social media posts which teased thoughts of suicide, which he later confirmed were true. On Saturday, just two days after his most recent arrest, he posted another one on his Instagram account.

While no official plans have been accounted for Broner's next fight, he told media members on Saturday in Brooklyn that he would welcome a pay-per-view fight against current junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford (30-0, 21 KOs) at 140 pounds. 

Crawford returns to the ring on May 20 against Felix Diaz at New York's Madison Square Garden.

"[Crawford] got a great fight coming up," Broner said. "I hope he win that fight. He ain't fighting no bum. And I just want him to keep winning, keep building his resume and keep building his rep because I'm gonna always do me. My ratings gonna always be there. That's a future pay-per-view fight. But I ain't fighting [Crawford] unless they pay me."
