Adrien Broner's troubles with the law continued Monday as the former four-division titleholder was sentenced to spend the next three days in a Kentucky jail for contempt of court. 

Broner, 27, pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge dating back to a 2014 incident at a Kenton County bar. But because he failed to show for previous appearances in court associated with the case, he was charged with contempt and placed in handcuffs after Monday's hearing, according to reports from FOX19 in Kentucky

The native of Cincinnati, who will serve the next three days at the Kenton County Detention Center, recently made national headlines for his April arrest on the open warrant. He was pulled over in Kentucky with eight bullet holes in the side of his rented SUV. Broner was later released on $503 bond, telling police he was shot at after leaving a Cincinnati bar

Broner (33-2, 24 KOs) hasn't fought since defeating Adrian Granados by split decision in February, which remains Showtime's most-watched boxing telecast of 2017. But his most recent brush with the law continues a downward trend which includes jail time in 2016 for showing up late and intoxicated to court. In October, he posted cryptic messages teasing suicide on his Instagram account both and repeated it again in April following his arrest. 

As of Monday morning, Broner's Instagram account was shut down.

One week after his April arrest, Broner attended the Shawn Porter-Andre Berto fight in Brooklyn, New York, and laughed off the shooting attempt on his life, saying, "They only sent 30 shots at me, and they still missed. I've got great defense."

He went on to tell TMZ Sports the next day: "They try to kill me because they jealous of my success. 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's downward spiral has been difficult to watch considering his immense talent inside the ring and the number of chances he has been given, including mentorship from retired champion and "big bro" Floyd Mayweather. Multiple times along the way, Broner has posted on social media about how he's a changed man. 

The idea of whether Broner, the father of seven children, will ever return to peak form as a boxer has now become a full-time secondary headline to the real matter at hand: getting his life back together.
