Brandon Browner, a former Pro Bowl cornerback and Super Bowl champion, is in some serious legal trouble tonight. Browner was arrested in California on Sunday after a police chase.

According to a report from NBC Los Angeles, Browner was arrested for kidnapping, false imprisonment, burglary, grand theft auto and violation of restraining order.

Here are some of the details:

Officers in the La Verne Police Department responded to a call at 10:07 a.m. on Sunday morning related to a man who broke into a home through a locked window. Browner was identified as the intruder and allegedly physically forced the victim back into her residence when she attempted to flee.

The former NFL pro allegedly physically harmed and made threats to kill the victim inside the residence per the La Verne PD. Browner fled the scene before police arrived and is alleged to have taken a Rolex watch valued at $20,000 from the victim before leaving the scene.

The 33-year-old Browner has been in trouble with the law before, including an arrest for cocaine possession in 2017 and another for battery and cruelty to a child this year.

During his NFL career, Browner made the Pro Bowl in 2011 and captured Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots. While in Seattle, Browner was part of the Seahawks' legendary "Legion of Boom" secondary.

Browner finished his a strong five-year NFL stint in 2015, compiling 218 tackles and 12 interceptions.

He also starred in the CFL from 2008-10.
