Troubling Antonio Brown Incident Leads To Police Presence
A troubling Antonio Brown incident led to a police presence at the former NFL receiver’s Florida home.
According to ESPN, Brown’s trainer Glen Holt stands accused of battering a moving truck outside his client’s residence in Hollywood, Florida.
Per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN, the victim also claimed that Brown was involved in the incident.

Holt was subsequently arrested for his alleged role in what transpired, while Brown merely remains a suspect.
At the moment, he has not been arrested.
“Police say Brown is a suspect but he has not been arrested or charged, and attempts to make contact with him were unsuccessful,” Wolfe wrote.
“The criminal investigation is ongoing and an update from police on Brown’s status is expected before noon ET on Wednesday.”
Brown has been out of the NFL since last September, when the New England Patriots cut him following a sexual assault allegation.
The league launched an investigation into Brown’s actions shortly thereafter, and that dissuaded multiple NFL franchises from pursuing him.
Until the league exonerates Brown, he is essentially blacklisted from participating in league activities with other teams.
No official statement from police has been offered on what precisely occurred on Tuesday afternoon.
An announcement of some sort on the matter should come in the next 24 hours.
