Antonio Brown set to have a bond hearing on Friday morning
Embattled former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown will have a bond hearing on Friday morning after turning himself in to police at Broward County Jail in Florida on Thursday night, according to Carey Codd of CBS 4.
Brown was wanted on an arrest warrant on charges of felony burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief.
The incident occurred outside of Brown’s home in Hollywood, Fl. on Tuesday, when Brown and his trainer, Glenn Holt, got into a heated argument with the driver of a moving truck operator that turned physical.
It all began when Brown refused to pay the $4,000 fee that was required, which resulted in the driver attempting to leave with Brown’s belongings still in the moving truck. Brown then threw a rock at the truck, denting the driver’s side door and causing some paint chipping. The driver then called the police to report the damage.
Afterward, the moving company called the driver and informed him that Brown was willing to pay the $4,000 fee plus an additional $860 to cover the damages caused to the vehicle. When the driver arrived back at Brown’s home, Brown handed over the $4,000 but refused to pay the $860, leading to an argument between Brown and the driver.
Brown then entered the driver’s side and began physically striking the driver while Brown’s trainer took the keys out of the ignition, opened the side door and began collecting what he thought were Brown’s belongings. However, the driver informed the pair that they were taking items of other people, and Holt and Brown then threw the goods back into the truck, damaging them.
Holt was arrested, but Antonio Brown locked himself in his house and refused to speak with authorities before eventually surrendering on Thursday evening.
