Arrest Warrant Issued For Ex-NFL Star Antonio Brown
Hollywood, FL – Police obtained an arrest warrant for troubled former National Football League player Antonio Brown for felony battery and burglary after reports of an altercation with a driver who works for a moving company.
A man who was with Brown at the time of the altercation has already been arrested, according to TMZ.
ESPN reported that there were several police officers in front of Brown’s home on Tuesday.
A moving truck driver alleged that he was assaulted by Brown and his trainer in a dispute about payment.
Brown refused to pay the $4,000 moving bill, so the driver attempted to leave with Brown's property.
That's when Brown allegedly threw a rock at the truck, damaging it. The driver returned after Brown agreed to pay his bill, but he refused to pay for the damage.
The driver claims he was then attacked by Brown and his trainer.
When officers contacted Brown to ask him about the incident, Brown fled into his home and ignored officers.
Brown lives in a gated community in Hollywood. Many neighbors have said they are tired of the problems that have occurred within Brown’s home, according to ESPN.
Drew Rosenhaus, Brown’s agent, terminated his relationship with Brown until the former NFL player gets counseling, according to ESPN.
Earlier in January, Brown took video of his profane outburst directed at the mother of his children and the Hollywood police. Brown live streamed the incident on Instagram.
At one point, Brown grabbed a back of gummy candies that were shaped liked penises and yelled that he had a “bag of dicks” for the mother of his children and the police. Brown then cursed at the police.
Brown has earned an estimated $71 million in salary and bonuses during his 10-year career. He played briefly with the New England Patriots this year. He caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown before being released.
The NFL is currently investigating Brown after his former personal trainer Britney Taylor claimed she was sexually assaulted by Brown, according to ESPN.
Brown was also accused of sexual misconduct by an artist who was working in his home in 2017, ESPN reported.
