Reports surfaced yesterday afternoon that ex-Patriots player, Antonio Brown, had locked himself inside his Hollywood, Florida mansion while police surrounded the residence attempting to make contact with him.
A public information officer, Christian Lata, told USA Today that Brown is under investigation for alleged battery and burglary.
According to police, an individual claimed he was the victim of battery involving the former NFL player and his trainer, Glen Holt.
Upon responding to an emergency call, police have revealed that the alleged victim is a moving-truck driver hired by Brown. Following the call, the police tried to make contact with Brown, but he would not cooperate and refused to come outside.
Brown’s trainer, Glen Holt, is in custody and has been arraigned at Broward County Jail as of Tuesday, Lata announced. Holt is facing charges of burglary with battery.
Police have yet to reveal further details on the incident.
If convicted, these charges will be added to Brown’s already lengthy wrap-sheet.
The former NFL player took to Instagram live last week to rant about police following a separate domestic dispute involving the mother of his children. Brown alleged that his baby mama was attempting to steal vehicles from his residence.
Following that incident, Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, severed ties with the former player citing his return only if Brown submits to counseling. The agent also apparently wrote to the NFL Players’ Association, urging Brown to seek mental health treatment.
To make matters worse, the NFL is currently investigating Brown for alleged sexual assault. The New England Patriots cut ties with the former wide-receiver on Sept. 21, after just playing one game in the 2019 season.
The cut followed news that Brown allegedly sent threatening texts to a different woman who accused him of sexual assault.
With all of these accusations and ongoing investigations, it’s unlikely that we’ll see Antonio Brown play in the NFL ever again.
Lastly, what do you think of Antonio Brown? Does he deserve another shot in the NFL?
