NFL news: Warrant issued for Antonio Brown with no bond
An arrest warrant has just been issued for Antonio Brown with no bond, according to Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640.
On Tuesday, a heavy police presence was outside of the wide receiver’s home in Hollywood, Fl. after he and his trainer allegedly assaulted the driver of a moving truck.
Court records obtained by TMZ Sports state that the driver was hired to deliver Brown’s belongings, but that when he asked Brown for $4,000 in payment, Brown refused.
The driver then attempted to leave Brown’s home with Brown’s belongings still in the truck, resulting in Brown picking up a rock and throwing it at the vehicle, causing a dent and paint chipping in the driver’s side door. The drive reported the damage to police.
Shortly after, the moving company called the driver to tell him to deliver Brown’s belongings, stating that Brown was willing to pay the $4,000 plus an extra $860 to cover the damage caused to the truck.
When the driver got back to Brown’s home, Brown gave the driver the $4,000 but refused to pay for the damages. The two argued, and Brown then entered the truck and begin to hit him before the 31-year-old was restrained by his associates.
Brown’s trainer, Glenn Holt, proceeded to grab the keys out of the ignition and open the side of the truck so Brown could get his goods, but once the driver told Brown and Holt that they were taking items that belonged other people, the items were thrown back into the truck, causing damage to the goods.
Holt has already been arrested for battery and burglary.
