Antonio Brown Arrest Warrant Issued
An Antonio Brown arrest warrant was issued on Wednesday afternoon.
The Hollywood Police Department in Florida said in a statement that the warrant was for burglary with battery.
There is reportedly no bond at this time.
Officers were dispatched to Brown’s home one day prior over a battery complaint.
The wide receiver and his trainer reportedly battered a moving truck, leading to the trainer being arrested and charged with burglary with battery.

“The driver claims he tried to leave the home (with AB’s property still in his truck) but Brown picked up a rock and threw it at the vehicle causing a dent and a paint chip on the driver’s side door,” TMZ reported of what transpired.
“The driver called police to report the vehicle damage.
“A short time later, the driver was contacted by the moving company and asked him to go back to Brown’s home to redeliver the goods … telling him Brown was willing to make the initial $4,000 payment PLUS an additional $860 to cover damage to the truck and the extra work time.”
As a result of Brown reportedly not cooperating with officers on Wednesday, the warrant for his arrest was issued.
According to multiple reports, police were called to Brown’s residence on in at least two separate instances this month.
Brown started last year off as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
From there he was moved to the Oakland Raiders, with whom he played no games. He was ultimately cut and subsequently picked up by the New England Patriots.
After playing one game with the Patriots, he was cut over sexual assault allegations that were made against him.
Brown has not played in the NFL since September 2019.
