Antonio Brown was once again back in the news on Tuesday, and much like the other 100 times, it wasn’t because he did something good.
On Tuesday, there were reports of a heavy police presence at his Florida home after someone called the cops on the free agent WR.
More details would soon follow that the former New England Patriots WR and his trainer Glenn Holt were being accused of jumping and beating up a moving truck driver that was hired to transport Brown’s belongings from his home.
ESPN has the details:
“Antonio Brown and his trainer allegedly battered the driver of a moving truck outside his residence here, the Hollywood Police Department said Tuesday.
Brown is a suspect in the alleged incident but is not in custody and has not been arrested, said police officials, who added that the criminal investigation is ongoing.
The trainer, Glen Holt, was charged with one count of felony burglary and battery. He was booked into jail Tuesday evening.
Brown hired the moving truck to bring some of his belongings to his Hollywood home before the disturbance occurred.”
Hollywood police reportedly tried obtaining an arrest warrant for Brown, but failed to do so.
“A Hollywood police spokesman said Brown was at home with Holt at the time of the incident and they attempted to make contact with him for further questioning but they were unsuccessful before leaving for the day.
The hope in contacting Brown was to determine whether they would bring battery charges against him, but they could not do that Tuesday.
In general, police say they prefer to deescalate situations where there is no other victim or apparent safety threatened rather than forcing contact to be made and potentially escalating a situation.”
