Former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner pleaded no contest to charges of battery and child endangerment in Southern California after being arrested on May 6, TMZ Sports reported.
It was Browner's third arrest in the last year.
The 33-year-old Browner was sentenced to probation, but because he already was on probation from a previous incident, he was sent to jail for violating his probation.
However, Los Angeles County officials released Browner after only two days because its jail was overcrowded.
Browner, a native of Los Angeles, was arrested on drug charges in October, and he also was arrested for making criminal threats in September.
In 2016, he was accused of assaulting his child's grandfather, although he did not face charges.
Browner made the Denver Broncos' roster as an undrafted rookie from Oregon State in 2005, played two seasons in Denver and four seasons with the Calgary Stampeders in the Canadian Football League.
