Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Keon Broxton was arrested on Friday and charged with misdemeanor trespassing. 

Per Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Broxton was arrested in Tampa after refusing to leave an area following a fight. 

Auman noted the incident took place at 3:26 a.m. on Friday morning after Tampa police were dispersing a crowd following a fight. 

Per the arrest report Auman cited, Broxton was described as being “extremely intoxicated” with visible injuries to his face. As police were asking people to leave an area, Broxton started yelling “Y’all ain’t s–t behind your badges” and one of his friends took him from the area following another warning. 

The report then alleged police officers saw Broxton again a few blocks away, and he kept yelling at them, was issued another warning and walked back onto property he had been told to leave while still arguing with the officers, leading to his arrest.

Brewers general manager David Stearns issued a brief statement about Broxton’s arrest. 

“We are aware of the news regarding Keon Broxton and are currently gathering information,” Stearns said, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. We will defer further comment until we know more about the situation.”

The 26-year-old Broxton was born in Lakeland, Florida. He was originally a third-round draft pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2009. Last season was his first extended opportunity in Major League Baseball, as he hit .242/.354/.430 in 75 games as the Brewers centerfielder.
