Former Seattle Seahawks and Oregon State cornerback Brandon Browner was indicted by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office on four felony charges on Tuesday, including attempted murder.

Browner, who fled the scene with a Rolex watch valued at about $20,000, was arrested by police hours later.

Along with the attempted murder charge, Browner faces felony robbery, burglary and false imprisonment charges and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child. Browner faces a possible maximum sentence of life in prison, {snip}.
