Boxer Adrian Broner will serve two years of probation after pleading guilty to two charges after forcibly kissing a woman at a Cleveland nightclub in June, according to Cleveland.com.

The 29-year-old Broner was originally accused of sexual imposition and abduction. Both are felonies. He instead opted to plead guilty to assault and unlawful restraint. Both are misdemeanors.

Broner will also have to pay a $1,000 fine and $4,200 to the woman to cover the cost of the woman’s counseling.

Broner was accused of forcibly kissing a woman at a Cleveland nightclub after Game 4 of the NBA Finals in 2018. Broner reportedly got on top of the woman and forcibly kissed her. One of the woman’s friends tried to pull Broner off, but couldn’t get him to budge. Broner only moved when a person came up to the scene ready to snap a picture, the woman told police.

The woman left the club with her friend and reported the incident to police.

Broner last appeared in a boxing ring in January, losing a fight to Manny Pacquiao. In March, Broner threatened to shoot gay people in a rant on his Instagram page.
