It escalated, police said, with Browner physically harming and threatening to kill the woman, who he was previously in a relationship with. His robbery, burglary and false imprisonment chargers consequently were dropped in a plea deal. TMZ further reported that Browner was immediately remanded into custody during the hearing and is back behind bars, receiving credit for 300 days for good behavior during the time he's spent behind bars so far. He allegedly broke a locked window and stole a $20,000 Rolex watch before fleeing the scene.
Prosecutors alleged Browner used "force and violence" against Foster and inflicted "unjustifiable physical pain and mental suffering" against a two-year-old child.

The Patriots' 24-10 victory over the Vikings was, by and large, an uneventful affair - save for one tense moment on the sideline. Asked if the conversation was just two competitive people exchanging holiday greetings, the coach replied, "Yeah, pretty much".
Browner played five seasons in the National Football League, spending time with the Seahawks, where he was a member of the original Legion of Boom, Patriots and Saints.
He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2011.
