Report: Antonio Brown being investigated for possible battery
The extensive police presence at Antonio Brown’s Hollywood, Fla. home is the result of a possible battery incident, according to a report.
Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reported Tuesday that Brown is being investigated for possible battery, and the scene at his home remains active as police determine whether charges are warranted.

The original report by TMZ stated that it appeared someone had been injured at Brown’s home.
The former Steelers and Patriots wide receiver’s legal troubles would continue to mount if charges are filed. He’s already had one police incident at his home this month, and his agent cut ties with him three days later.
Brown was already highly unlikely to return to the NFL any time soon as the league investigates multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him. A battery charge would only further doom his career prospects.
