Truth About Antonio Brown Police Incident Emerges
The truth about Antonio Brown’s police incident emerged on Wednesday.
Late Tuesday afternoon, a heavy police presence was reportedly seen outside of Brown’s Hollywood, Florida residence.
ESPN NFL insider Cameron Wolfe reported that the wide receiver was being investigated for a “possible battery” incident.
A day later, we have some clarity on what precisely happened.
Brown’s trainer, Glen Holt, was arrested and charged with “burglary with batter” after allegedly battering a moving truck driver
Brown was viewed as a suspect in the altercation, but ultimately not arrested.
According to officer Christian Lata, part of the reason why Brown ultimately was not apprehended was because he reportedly locked himself in his home.
“Multiple attempts by police to contact him were unsuccessful as of Wednesday morning, and Lata said he ‘locked himself in his house.’ Police reiterated the investigation is ongoing and said more information will be available later Wednesday,” reports USA Today.
In 2019, Brown was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders.
As a result of multiple off-the-field issues the Raiders ultimately released him without Brown having played a single outing for them.
Brown then signed with the New England Patriots, with whom he played one game before ultimately being cut over a sexual assault allegation.
The polarizing wide receiver has not played an NFL game since September 2019.
