Former Seattle Seahawk Brandon Browner has been charged with attempted murder. The two time Super Bowl winning cornerback broke into his ex-girlfriend's house and attacked her, reported People.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release that Browner, 33, is accused of breaking into an ex-girlfriend’s apartment in La Verne, California. He allegedly chased her, dragged her, and tried to smother her while her two children were present.
He was also said to have stolen the victim’s Rolex watch before fleeing the scene. The watch was reportedly worth $20,000.
He was arrested hours later. His mugshot is shown below.
The NFL star has been charged with attempted murder, first-degree residential robbery, first-degree burglary, person present and false imprisonment.
In addition to those charges, he also faces two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child. This is because he abused their mother while the children were present.
Browner made an initial appearance in court on Tuesday, July 10. His bail was set at $10 million.
If convicted of the charges, the athlete faces a possible maximum life sentence in prison. Browner was previously arrested for domestic violence, and the victim had a restraining order against him, reported People.
Browner won Super Bowl championships with the Seattle Seahawks in 2013 and the New England Patriots in 2014. He last played in the NFL 2016 as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.
