Police Investigating Antonio Brown For Possible Battery

     

Update:

According to Mark Maske, police officers attempted to speak to Antonio Brown but he locked himself in his home and refused to speak to the officers. Maske says more information is expected Wednesday.


TMZ Sports reports that Antonio Brown has been accused of felony battery and burglary stemming from an incident with a driver who works for a moving company.

According to TMZ, police are actively working on getting a warrant for Brown’s arrest and they’re trying to convince him to surrender peacefully.

A source tells TMZ that a man who was with Brown at the time of the alleged altercation has already been arrested.


Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports that Hollywood, Florida police are investigating Antonio Brown for a possible battery at his home on Tuesday.

Wolfe says there’s still an active scene at Brown’s home while police determine if battery charges will be brought against him. Brown has yet to be arrested and police believe this is not a domestic situation, according to Wolfe.

Last week, Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, decided to conditionally terminated his relationship with Brown until he seeks counsel. 

Rosenhaus wrote in a letter to the NFLPA that he would like to work with Brown, but the veteran receiver needs to get help.

Rosenhaus has supported Brown publicly through his numerous escapades in the past calendar year. 

It’s worth mentioning that Brown broadcasted a video on social media last week of a confrontation between himself, the police and the mother of his children where he repeatedly berated her and the officers in front of his kids. It’s possible this was the breaking point for Rosenhaus. 

Brown had a workout with the Saints toward the end of the 2019 season, but it appears teams are waiting to see how the pending NFL investigation shakes out.

Should another team take the plunge on Brown, the NFL would likely place him on the commissioner’s exempt list until they conclude their investigation into allegations of rape and sexual harassment

Since being released from the Patriots and filing grievances against both Oakland and New England seeking to recoup $40 million in salary.

Brown, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $72.71 million contract when the Steelers traded him to the Raiders back in March. 

The Raiders later signed Brown to a new contract worth $50.125 million and includes $30.125 million guaranteed. However, Oakland made the decision to release Brown before the start of the season and he later signed a one-year deal worth up to $15 million with the Patriots.

Brown lasted just 11 days in New England.  

In 2019, Brown appeared in one game for the Patriots and caught four passes for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.
