Antonio Brown accused of being high, throwing rocks at truck in 911 call
A warrant was issued for Antonio Brown’s arrest over his alleged involvement in a physical altercation at his home on Tuesday, and the 911 call from the incident outlines some troubling behavior from the star receiver.
Brown and his trainer, Glenn Holt, are accused of battering a moving truck driver and throwing rocks at the driver’s truck after the driver demanded a $4,000 payment from Brown. Holt was taken into custody following the incident and charged with burglary with battery. Brown was refusing to cooperate with police as of Wednesday, leading to an arrest warrant being issued.
TMZ has obtained a copy of the 911 call placed by the moving truck driver, and the driver says Brown was “high” and “threatened me.” The driver said he called Brown to tell him he needed to pay the balance he owed the moving company, which was $4,000. Brown eventually agreed to pay the $4,000 via the Zelle app, but the driver said he refused to pay $800 for the damages caused when Brown and Holt allegedly threw rocks at the truck.
According to TMZ, the driver also said in the 30-minute 911 call that Brown forcibly took the driver’s keys, opened the back of the moving truck and began “destroying” objects inside that did not belong to him. The driver also said he knew Brown was high because the 31-year-old was smoking out in the open.
It’s unclear what — if any — charges Brown will be facing. This is at least the second time this month that police have been called to his home. Brown broadcast the previous incident on Instagram live and showed himself berating police officers and cursing in front of his children.
Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus and attorney parted ways with the Pro Bowler last week. Brown only played in one game for the New England Patriots last season and is being investigated by the NFL over multiple issues.
