Antonio Brown ordered by judge to wear GPS, undergo mental health evaluation

Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown appeared in front of a judge on Friday after turning himself in on an arrest warrant the previous day, and the star receiver will have to do more than just pay a fine for his role in an incident that took place at his home earlier this week.

Brown was wearing an anti-suicide smock during his court appearance, and Andy Slater reports that the judge ordered Brown to wear a GPS monitor, surrender his passport, and undergo a mental health evaluation. Brown’s bond was set at $100,000.

Brown has been charged with burglary with battery after he and his trainer, Glenn Holt, allegedly attacked a moving truck driver on Tuesday. Holt was arrested, and a warrant was issued for Brown’s arrest on Wednesday after he refused to cooperate with police.

A moving truck driver delivered furniture to Brown’s home in Hollywood, Fla., on Tuesday, and Brown allegedly refused to pay the $4,000 he owed. The driver then began driving away with the furniture, and Brown threw rocks at the truck and caused damage. The driver says he returned after being told to by the company, as Brown had spoken with the company and agreed to pay the $4,000 plus $860 he caused in damages to the truck. Brown allegedly only paid the $4,000 when the driver came back, leading to an argument and the driver being assaulted by Brown and Holt. Brown and his associates allegedly began taking the furniture off the truck, even taking some belonging to another client and then damaging it by throwing it back on the truck after being informed it did not belong to them.

Police officers have been called to Brown’s home on at least two occasions this month. Brown broadcast the previous incident on Instagram live and showed himself berating police 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.

Antonio Brown is trying to handle his legal situation with authorities in Florida.

Brown turned himself in at a Florida jail on Thursday, TMZ Sports first reported.

ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe says Brown arrived with his attorneys at Broward County Jail to handle the matter.

Brown was investigated for a possible battery by his home in Hollywood, Florida on Tuesday. He and his trainer, Glenn Holt, are accused of burglary and battery for allegedly beating up a moving truck driver. While Holt was taken into custody, Brown went inside his house and would not cooperate with police. The wide receiver had a warrant produced on Wednesday for his arrest, and finally as of a day later, he has turned himself in.

Brown is facing charges of burglary with battery. Here are details about the incident.

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.

The trainer, Glenn Holt, was taken into custody following the incident and charged with burglary with battery. Brown was not cooperating with police as of earlier Wednesday, leading to the arrest warrant being issued.

According to TMZ Sports, the moving truck was delivering furniture from California to Brown’s home in Florida. The driver demanded a $4,000 payment upon arrival but Brown would not pay, leading the driver to drive away with the furniture. Brown allegedly threw a rock at the truck, causing damage. The driver returned after being told to by the moving company. The company allegedly spoke with Brown, who agreed to pay the $4,000 fee plus an additional $860 for damages and lost work time. Brown only paid $4,000 when the driver showed up, leading to another argument and to the driver allegedly being assaulted by Brown and Holt. Brown and his associates allegedly began taking the furniture off the truck, even taking some belonging to another client and then damaging it by throwing it back on the truck after being informed it did not belong to them.

Report: Antonio Brown not cooperating with police after alleged battery incident

Antonio Brown

Police were called to Antonio Brown’s home in Florida on Tuesday following a possible battery incident, but the star wide receiver is reportedly not cooperating with with the investigation.

The Hollywood (Fla.) Police Department confirmed on Tuesday that a moving truck driver said he was the victim of battery at Brown’s home. Brown’s trainer, Glen Holt, was taken into custody following the incident and charged with “burglary with battery.” Brown is also considered a suspect in the incident, but public information officer Christian Lata told USA Today’s Chris Bumbaca that the 31-year-old “locked himself in his house” and was not cooperating with police as of late Wednesday morning.

Details surrounding the alleged incident remain unclear, but Brown could face legal trouble even if he was not directly involved. If Brown is considered a suspect, he would be impeding an investigation by refusing to cooperate with police.

While police have not had success contacting Brown, the free agent did send a couple of tweets on Wednesday morning. One was a link to a new song he made available on iTunes, and another said “they want my name slandered.”

Multiple police officers have been called to Brown’s home on at least two occasions this month. The last time, Brown broadcasted the incident on Instagram live and showed himself berating police and cursing in front of his children.

Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus and attorney Darren Heitner parted ways with the Pro Bowler last week. Rosenhaus said he is willing to work with Brown in the future but only if Brown seeks counseling.

Brown has been under investigation by the NFL after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct. His chances of signing with a team next season are getting worse by the day.

Report: Antonio Brown being investigated for possible battery

Antonio Brown

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.

Antonio Brown is just days removed from having police at his Florida home for an incident involving the mother of his children, and officers were reportedly called to the residence again on Tuesday for another incident.

One of Brown’s neighbors told TMZ on Tuesday afternoon that there were a “handful” of squad cars outside the free agent receiver’s home, and it appeared someone had been injured. Police would only confirm that there was an “active scene” at Brown’s home and said Brown was not in custody “at this time.”

Details surrounding the incident are unclear, but this would be at least the second time this month that multiple officers were called to Brown’s home. The last time, Brown broadcasted the incident on Instagram live and showed himself berating police and cursing in front of his children.

Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus and attorney Darren Heitner parted ways with the 31-year-old last week. Rosenhaus said he is willing to work with Brown in the future but only if Brown seeks counseling.
