Antonio Morrison is need of some serious help before he ultimately hurts someone.
The former Indianapolis Colts linebacker is now facing charges on a battery on a public official and police want to seize his firearms.
The 25-year-old, who is currently in the Marion County Jail in Indianapolis, suffers from mental health issues and has reportedly been a terrible neighbor.
According to WISH-TV, Morrison has had several run-ins with his neighbors.
“On April 22, Carmel police received a call from a neighbor claiming Morrison was making threatening actions and lewd comments such as “I am going to screw your wife.” The next day, the neighbor said Morrison came to his door and said he was going to kill him. Court documents state a Ring doorbell camera recorded the threat.
On April 22, another neighbor reported threatening comments from Morrison, as well as loud barking by Morrison’s dogs.
On May 1, another neighbor said Morrison told him to “get inside your condo b****,” intimidated him and yelled at his daughter. The neighbor did not want to have Morrison prosecuted and told police he believes Morrison is paranoid.
Another neighbor told officers that Morrison challenged him to a gun fight.
On May 10, the Carmel Fire Department responded to a fire and were met with an armed person. Court documents released to News 8 Friday reveal that person was Morrison. Carmel police and fire were on the scene for six hours trying to negotiate with him.”
According to a sergeant with the Carmel Police Department, the NFL “paid to remove Antonio’s girlfriend and two children from Antonio’s home about three years ago and relocate them to Florida due to violent behavior displayed by Antonio.”
On Wednesday, Carmel Police filed a second affidavit seeking to seize a firearm owned by Morrison and said he presents “an imminent risk of personal injury to (himself) or to another individual.”
Morrison played with the Colts in 2016 and 2017, having his best year in 2017 when he racked up 108 total tackles with one pass deflection. He would be traded to the Green Bay Packers before the 2018 season, but waived by the team in March 2019.
