Once a hard-hitting member of the Legion of Boom, Brandon Browner could now be looking at some hard time. Reports flew in late Sunday night that the 2-time Super Bowl champion defensive back was arrested yet again. This is Browner’s fourth arrest in just over a year. He was previously arrested for possession of cocaine, making threats toward a woman, and battery and child endangerment. He pleaded no contest and was given three years probation. Apparently the Los Angeles County jail was full around the last arrest, and he only served one day behind bars.
Browner is facing Serious Time
According to NBC Los Angeles, the list of charges Browner faces include kidnapping, burglary, false imprisonment, and violation of a restraining order. the La Verne Police Department responded to a call early Sunday about a man who broke into a home and “allegedly physically harmed and made threats to kill the victim inside the residence.” That man was later identified as Browner. As she tried to leave, he forced her back into her home and made the alleged threats.
Multiple Suspensions from the NFL
He suspended twice for performance enhancing drugs. The first time was a 4-game suspension served at the start of the 2012 season with Seattle. The second was served at the beginning of the 2014 season with New England. He has always been an aggressive and outspoken player. According to NOLA.com, he got into it with some Saints fans in the comments section of an Instagram post and said he “took that few millions and ran with it” among other things.
A Championship Career that Ended Quietly
Brandon Browner was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2005. From there he played in the CFL for the Calgary Stampeders before returning to the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks in 2011. With Seattle, Browner won Super Bowl XLVIII over his former team, the Broncos. The following season Browner joined the New England Patriots and proceeded once again to beat a former team for a Super Bowl championship. The Patriots beat Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX. Browner then played for New Orleans in the 2015 season before returning to Seattle in 2016. He was released after their third preseason game and hasn’t played since.
