There’s been an update to the story of former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner’s recent arrest.

On Tuesday, Browner was formally charged with attempted murder, according to the La Verne (CA) Police Department. In total, he has four felonies (attempted murder, false imprisonment, burglary, and robbery) and two misdemeanor counts of child endangerment, all stemming from an alleged incident on July 8th at the home of Browner’s ex-girlfriend.

KTLA has the disturbing details:

Earlier this month, Browner allegedly broke into the woman’s home and stole a $20,000 Rolex watch, police said. The woman had a restraining order against him, but he entered the residence through a locked window.

He also allegedly assaulted the victim by dragging her before smothering her in a carpet, the DA’s office said in a separate news release. Her two children were present during the abuse.

The defendant fled the scene before the authorities arrived, but was arrested within hours of the incident.

Browner was also arrested in May on domestic battery and child endangerment charges, as well as cocaine possession last October, and felony charges of making criminal threats to a woman the previous September.

A former CFL All-Star, Browner played with the Seattle Seahawks for three seasons, winning a Super Bowl in his final year in Seattle before getting another Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2014. He has not played a regular season snap in the NFL since a disastrous 2015 season with the New Orleans Saints.

The 33-year-old Browner’s bail has been set at $10 million. A first-degree attempted murder charge in the state of California carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
