Former boxing champ Adrien Broner was arrested in Atlanta Monday night for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a local shopping mall, TMZ Sports has confirmed.
Officials tell us ... cops were called to the Lenox Square shopping center Monday evening where a woman told police Broner had " inappropriately groped her."
Broner denied the allegation -- but after being interviewed by cops, they believed there was enough evidence to arrest him for misdemeanor sexual battery.
The 28-year-old was transported to Fulton County Jail without incident.
He's scheduled to face a judge around 9 AM local time. His booking sheet lists him at 5'8" and 160 lbs.
