NFL news: Antonio Brown’s trainer arrested as battery investigation continues
Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown continues to find himself mixed up in trouble. Police in Hollywood, Florida are investigating Brown’s trainer, Glen Holt, for an alleged battery charge.
Holt allegedly battered a driver of a moving truck that had been seen outside Brown’s home. Holt has been arrested and charged with one count of burglary and battery. Brown is reportedly a suspect but has not been arrested or charged while attempts to contact the former NFL star have been unsuccessful per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.
After seven Pro-Bowl seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brown was traded to the Oakland Raiders in the offseason. Brown would end up never playing a game in silver and black due to both injuries and off the field issues.
Arguments with the Raiders front office and a very public trade demand led to Brown being cut from the team. The New England Patriots then signed the 31-year-old. Brown would play just one game for New England before being released amid allegations of sexual assault arose.
Recently, Brown worked out for the New Orleans Saints but later called the workout a publicity stunt on social media.
Just last week, Brown’s longtime agent, Drew Rosenhaus, decided to no longer represent the three-time First-Team All-Pro selection stating that he would like to work with Brown but not until he gets the help he needs.
As for the criminal investigation, it is an ongoing case, and an update from Police regarding Antonio Brown is expected by Wednesday by noon.
