Arrest warrant issued for Antonio Brown

He can hide, but he can’t run.

An arrest warrant has been issued for free-agent receiver Antonio Brown, via Andy Slater of FOX Sports 640. Brown faces charges of burglary with battery.

The warrant arises from a Tuesday incident during which Brown refused to pay the driver of a moving truck for delivering property from California. Brown allegedly threw a rock at the truck as the driver left with the property. Then, when the moving company informed the driver to return after Brown supposedly agreed to pay the $4,000 plus an extra $860, Brown allegedly refused to pay more than $4,000, allegedly battered the driver, and allegedly removed his property from the truck after Glenn Holt, who already has been arrested, took the keys and opened the doors to the truck.

Slater adds that “there is no bond,” but that’s presumably a decision that would be made by a judge after Brown is arrested and processed.

Either way, Brown faces a serious legal problem. And the fact that a warrant has been issued means that locking himself in his house no longer will work. If he doesn’t voluntarily come out, the police will be going in.

  1. “The police will be going in…”. Oh boy. That don’t sound right especially with AB attitude, anger, ego and being a black man. I hope this end good not bad.

  2. Holy crap we might actually be seeing the start of the final meltdown with this guy. Certainly hope it doesn’t but as the article alluded to this could get real sad real fast. Someone has to save this guy from himself.

  3. This guy can’t get out of his own way.. He has been a trouble maker for a long time now.it seems..

  4. If he is locked in his house, they can wait him out. Cut off the utilities, and prevent access or egress. He’s not going anywhere except to jail. I hope he doesn’t do anything more stupid than what he’s already done.

  5. I can understand why AB would do something crazy, because he’s been acting crazy all along, but what is the trainer’s excuse?

  6. This just shows that no matter how much money or fame one may have, you can’t correlate it with intelligence

  7. People act like he is just some idiot making bad choices. It is obvious that this man is suffering from some sort of mental condition, and most likely a serious one. This isn’t “stupid is as stupid does,” “dumb and dumber”, or a popcorn moment. It’s a real problem that maybe deserves a little humanity. Just sayin.

  8. Someone ought to put his children first. The level of idiocy continues to increase and with that, the danger of violence.

    This is a guy who long ago warranted a 72 hour hold…

  9. Well at least now we know no one can claim him for next season. Roger is never going to allow him on the field NOW. My concern had always been that he would tear it up for a desperate team with no scruples.

    “If he is locked in his house, they can wait him out. Cut off the utilities”

    all you gotta do is cut off his social media. his massive ego will bring him out, searching for the spotlight once again.

  11. He has a history of not paying his bills. He has a laundry list of creditors seeking payment for services over the past years. He is now learning how the word former being used prior to the words NFL star is a life altering shift.

  12. This is turning into a very tragic and sad story. The man is crying out for help through his insane outbursts and rants. A complete waste of an incredible talent I pray he gets help.

  13. Under Florida law, Burglary-Battery is punishable up to life in prison.
    A life sentence is not mandatory as Florida is a sentencing guideline state. However, the charge does carry a mandatory prison term the length of which depends upon how the accused scores under those guidelines.
    The statute was enacted to protect vehicle occupants with the same legal rights as anyone in a dwelling. Anyone so charged should hire a very good criminal defense lawyer. This is no game.

  14. I would imagine there is a fair chance that he will continue to resist arrest. That would clearly fit the pattern. Very Sad.
    How many football fans would still welcome him on their team?

  15. Not a Steelers fan but they must love that they got draft picks for this guy and every time he is in the news now he is referred to as former Patriot AB. Shown in his one game #17 jersey.

  16. It’s easy to make light of his situation but it’s equally as shocking. Can this guy really be such a narcissist that he believe he can do anything he wants? What is it with him never wanting to pay anyone anything. He has some serious maturity issues. This is one mess he’s not going to be able to get out of through social media. Oh sure, he can hire high-priced lawyers to get him out of this mess but eventually the money is going to run out and then where will he be? For all the talent he has on the football field he is seriously lacking life skills.

  17. This might be a godsend for AB. If the judge demands him evaluated they can lock him up in a facility to be evaluated and treated.
    If he refuses, revoke bail until he accepts the terms

    At least someone wants him.

    Just like the Pats, Raiders, and Steelers they will probably regret it.

  19. “If he is locked in his house, they can wait him out. Cut off the utilities, and prevent access or egress.”

    Yeah at what cost to the taxpayers? Are they supposed to keep a dozen officers or so surrounding that large house so he can’t escape for how how many days?

    You’re talking about a huge cost to enable this guy all the more.

    They have their warrant, they should go in and haul him to jail like they would anyone else.

    In the words of Chris Rock… “That train is never late”

  21. Could we have a dose of reality here? Yes, there’s a warrant, but I’m sure the police have hundreds of other warrants as well, and he’s not charged with murder or any other crime for which you can’t get bail, so this is probably not a high priority for the police department. AB is highly recognizable, so he could certainly be arrested if a police officer sees him or if he gets stopped while driving his car, but I’d certainly question the priorities of any police department that put arresting AB at the top of their list…and any trial would be about a year from now, so it’s a little early to predict how any of this will go.

    This IS NOT going to end well!!!

    especially when he runs out of money (and that day will come)

  23. Antonio, I hope that $860 was worth it because your career is in tatters now. In the end it will end up costing you millions in lost salary, if you do work again it will be for a bargain basement price.

    All the police need to do is shut down his internet connection and wait outside his house. He will emerge in about 5 minutes

  25. “AB seems to really hate paying for anything.”

    True. Funny how nobody seem to want to work for Mr Big Chest for free, isn’t it?

  26. This idiot is going to go to jail over 860 dollars?!?!?!?!
    He has made multi multi millions playing football but not a red cent doing sponsorship things. That tells you all you need to know about his character.
    He will be flat broke in a few years and in jail for drugs or murder no doubt.
    And anyone blaming this on CTE is just making excuses. This guy is uneducated and was given too much money and fame and was not able to handle it. Never learned a thing in college because he was only there to play a sport. So he has ZERO life lessons.

  27. Not at all a fan of Brown, but I can truly understand him being upset at the moving company. It happens all the time, moving company agrees to move you for a certain price, then when they go to deliver your stuff, they demand more money before they will unload. It happened with my 80 year old parents, and some good friends last year and I wanted to do the same thing, instead, I called the police, as did my friends. Moving companies are bigger scumbags than Brown!

    Jail will actually help this dude out..keep him from harming himself and others.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Uh huh. Sure. Now try imagining how that attitude he has will be received in jail.

  29. Dear Antonio Brown…I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news. The good news is that an organization finally wants you. The bad news is that it’s the police.

  30. Hey Antonio — at least some guys in uniforms want you !!!
    I think you’d look good in a striped outfit with numbers across the chest — right where you belong with all the other nitwits who think laws and rules are made for everyone but them.

    I disagree. It is a high priority because the entire nation is watching, even though, that in itself, is a little pathetic!
