LA VERNE – Superbowl champion Brandon Browner (33) of Pomona is back in the headlines with new meaning to “keep on fighting to the end.” The former NFL cornerback was arrested on felony charges yesterday for a residential break-in and assault in La Verne.
La Verne PD immediately responded to a confidential location at 10:07 AM regarding a male suspect who’d broken through a locked window, then fled.
Subsequently, investigators learned that the female victim was physically forced back into her residence when she attempted to escape.
La Verne PD announced, “Browner then physically harmed and made threats to kill the victim while in the residence.”
Browner took a Rolex watch valued at approx $20K from the victim before he fled.
As a result, investigators announced, “Browner and the victim had a previous relationship together. Browner has a previous domestic violence arrest and a restraining order from the victim. La Verne PD Officers and Detectives were able to locate Browner within hours of the incident. They then took him into custody without further incident. He (faces) felony charges.”
Consequently, the long list of charges include kidnapping, burglary, imprisonment, and violation of the restraining order.
NFL.com reported that Browner last played in the NFL in 2016 as a member of the Seattle Seahawks. He’d spent time with the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos. He also had four seasons with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL during a professional career that spanned 11 seasons.
Browner played in the American Flag Football League as part of the Roadrunners. He participated in his last game with the team on Saturday night in Kennesaw, Georgia.
