Browner was arrested in a felony investigation of kidnapping, burglary, false imprisonment, and violation of a restraining order in relation to an incident that took place earlier Sunday morning, according to NBC 4 Los Angeles.

Browner's background 

Browner, a Los Angeles native, played college football at Oregon State. After going undrafted in 2005, Browner spent the 2005 NFL season on injured reserve with the Denver Broncos. 

From 2007 to 2011, Browner played for the Calgary Stampeders in the Canadian Football League. 

In 2011, Browner returned to the NFL and signed with the Seattle Seahawks. Browner started 36 games for the Seahawks from 2011 to 2013. 

Browner left Seattle to join the New England Patriots, where he won Super Bowl XLIX over the Seattle Seahawks.

In 2015, Browner joined the New Orleans Saints, where he started 16 games at cornerback. 

Browner signed a one-year deal to return to Seattle in April of 2016, but he was released during training camp. 

Details on Browner's arrest

The La Verne Police Department says officers originally responded to reports of a male who broke into a residence through a locked window Sunday morning. 

The 33-year-old Browner was identified as the suspect, and police say he fled the scene before officers arrived. 

"The investigation determined Browner physically forced the victim back into her residence when she attempted to flee. He then physically harmed and made threats to kill the victim while in the residence," according to the La Verne Police Department. 

Police also said Browner took a Rolex watch, valued at approximately $20,000 from the victim, before fleeing the residence. 

According to the La Verne Police Department Browner was located within hours of the incident and was taken into custody without further incident. 

Browner is currently being held at the La Verne Police Department.

Ronda Rousey becomes first woman inductee in UFC Hall of Fame

Ronda Rousey, who dominated the women’s mixed martial arts division with a string of convincing victories over a three-year period, became the first woman inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on Thursday, ESPN reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Rousey, 31, was the UFC’s first women’s champion. As the company’s bantamweight champion, she held the title from 2012 to 2015 and defended the belt six times. She won her first 12 mixed martial arts matches -- all by submission -- and appeared unbeatable until she was stunned in November 2015 by Holly Holm in a second-round loss. A comeback match against Amanda Nunes in December 2016 ended in a 48-second loss in the first round. Rousey has not competed in mixed martial arts since and signed with the WWE in January, ESPN reported.

“I am not the first person who had the ability to do this, but I am here because I am the first person you took the time to watch, that you put the energy into supporting," Rousey said during her induction speech in Las Vegas at the Pearl Theatre. “Because of you, I am the first woman standing up here accepting this incredible honor. May I be the first of many."

Rousey won a bronze medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, becoming the first American woman to win a medal in judo. Rousey debuted in the UFC in 2013, defeating Liz Carmouche in the UFC’s first women’s fight.

"In my almost 18 years as UFC president, I've learned many valuable lessons," UFC president Dana White said as he presented Rousey. "And the one that comes to mind tonight is never say never, especially when you're talking to UFC. In my defense, when I famously said women would never fight in the UFC, I had never met Ronda Rousey. I had never met the woman who would change everything. She started by changing my mind and she ended up changing the world."

90-year-old man competes in NASCAR-sanctioned event

Hershel McGriff struck a blow for elderly drivers everywhere Saturday.

>> Read more trending news

McGriff, who turned 90 in December, became the oldest racer to compete in a NASCAR-sponsored event, finishing 18th in the K&N Pro Series West event at Tucson Speedway, ESPN reported.

Driving on the three-eighths-mile track was a snap, McGriff said, but he was more nervous about playing the national anthem on his trombone to kick off the race.

“Instead of racing young kids at 120 miles per hour, he’s more nervous about playing his trombone,” Tucson Speedway president John Lashley told the Arizona Daily Star. “He’s just wound different than you and me.”

McGriff drove for Bill McAnally Racing with sponsorship from South Point Hotel & Casino, the Star reported. His son, Hershel Jr., and his granddaughter Mariah competed in separate races Saturday at the track.

McGriff is no stranger to racing. He won four races in 1954 in what is now the NASCAR Cup Series and has 37 career victories. His last win in the series came in 1989, ESPN reported. McGriff’s last race in the K&N series came in 2012, when he placed 18th at Sonoma Raceway.

McGriff’s last victory came in 1989. He was named one of NASCAR's 50 greatest drivers in 1998, and in 2006 was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame.

McGriff began racing as a 17-year-old, enticed by an advertisement in an Oregon newspaper.

“So I borrowed my dad’s 1940 Hudson — ugly car, but he loaned me the car and I found a couple of guys that helped me,” McGriff told the Star. “I didn’t do too well. I finished I think 12th or 13th out of a bunch of cars and it was a terrible track. That got me started.”

McGriff retired from competitive racing when he was 74. He raced sporadically since, and in 2009 -- as an 81-year-old -- he became the oldest man to compete in a NASCAR-sanctioned race. "I've had a great life. I wouldn't backtrack for anything,” McGriff told the Star. “I have family that's with me and behind me, so it's great.”

Heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder 'wants a body' on his record

Unbeaten WBC heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder told a radio talk show host Friday that he wanted “a body on my record,” ESPN reported.

>> Read more trending news

During “The Breakfast Club” radio show in New York this week, Wilder (40-0, 39 knockouts), a devastating puncher, repeated controversial comments about killing another fighter in the ring,

"I want a body on my record. I want one. I want one, I really do," Wilder said. "That's the 'Bronze Bomber,' he wants one. I always tell people, ‘When I'm in the ring, like I'm the 'Bronze Bomber.' Everything about me changes. I don't get nervous, I don't get scared, I don't get butterflies, I don't have no feelings towards the man I'm gonna fight.

Wilder’s comments come more than a month after the death of Scott Westgarth, who died a day after defeating Dec Spelman in a 10-round fight, ESPN reported.

Westgarth was knocked down during the fight and collapsed in his dressing room after doing post-fight interviews, ESPN reported.

Also during “The Breakfast Club” broadcast, Wilder talked about a ninth-round knockout of Artur Szpilka in January 2016.

"I thought I had one (body) one time, like I said, with Szpilka, because he wasn't breathing when he hit the canvas," Wilder said. "Somebody's gotta go. I want that on my record, because when I'm in that state on mind, like I ain't myself."

Wilder has held the WBC title since beating Bermane Stiverne in January 2015. In his most recent fight, Wilder defeated Luis Ortiz on March 3 by a TKO in the 10th round, according to Bleacher Report.

MMA fighter gets first victory, then is DQ'd for celebration tactic

This is not the way to celebrate your first professional mixed martial arts victory. As it turned out, Drew Chatman’s first win turned into a disqualification because of his celebration tactics, the New York Post reported.

During the LFA 36 card Friday night at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in Cabazon, California, Chatman was battling Irvins Ayala. Chatman was on his back when Ayala attempted to throw a hammerfist, but his chin hit Chatman’s knee and he knocked himself out.
