Bond hearing for Antonio Brown on Friday morning

Antonio Brown turned himself in to police in Broward County on Thursday night after an arrest warrant was issued for him on charges of burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief.

Brown didn’t have a comment for reporters on his way into the Broward County jail, but his attorney Eric Schwartzreich did confirm that his client would spend the night in custody before a bond hearing on Friday morning.

“I’ve advised him not to. He’s innocent of these charges. Hopefully we’ll get bond tomorrow and he’ll be acquitted of all charges,” Schwartzreich said to WFOR.

The arrest warrant was issued after an incident involving Brown, his trainer Glenn Holt and the driver of a moving truck. Brown allegedly threw rocks at the vehicle after refusing to pay the $4,000 charged by the driver, who left and then returned when his employers told him Brown would pay the charge plus $860 for damages to the truck.

Upon his return, Brown paid the original $4,000, but not the additional damages. At that point, the altercation allegedly moved from verbal to physical and Holt has also been arrested on a burglary with battery charge.

  1. Paying the $860 for the damaged truck would have been a lot cheaper than the legal fees he’s about to pay out.

  2. ““I’ve advised him not to. He’s innocent of these charges. Hopefully we’ll get bond tomorrow and he’ll be acquitted of all charges,” Schwartzreich said to WFOR”

    Innocent? I wasn’t there but there’s no way in hell this guy is innocent. He’s found a lawyer as looney as he is.

  3. Mr. Big Chest will soon be seeing the inside of the Big House – and not an instant too soon.

    Good riddance to a menace to society.

  4. Say what you will about AB and his antics but this is a seriously sad situation unfolding in front of us.

  5. AB….. a victim of AB yet again…. but I’m sure HE sees it as someone else’s fault !!!!!!!

    ======================
    The lawyer is doing what lawyers are paid to do.

  7. Not sure what the Florida laws are to have a person put in a involuntary hold, but whatever they are I’m sure his past behavior should get him a room.

  8. What’s up with Brown and his trainers? This time it’s Glenn Holt, possibly former UK and NFL receiver Glenn Holt, but still the fact that you’re getting arrested with Brown over a moving truck, Brown just gets way too involved with his trainers.

  9. Lots of comments about how sad this situation is, I’m not so sure. He had every opportunity, many many opportunities. He presumably had the advice of some smart people, like his lawyers, and many opportunities to heed their advice. He also presumably has at least a little common sense, and has moments alone with himself when his mind has to be working to figure his problems out, but stil, this is where we find ourselves. I’ll save my sympathy for some single mother or old person.

  10. “Brown didn’t have a comment for reporters on his way into the Broward County jail….” “I’ve advised him not to….”

    So, Brown will be taking to Twitter shortly.

  11. It’s still not clear, who threw the rock? He paid the 4 G’s which the moving company said must be cash or by western union was it? so this is over $860? What are the other charges added on for?

    This guy notoriously fails to pay for services and that’s how he is in this mess in the first place.

    Doing his job and blatantly lying by publicly and unequivocally saying “he’s innocent” are two different things. Instead of saying he is innocent as a response to whether or not he had a comment he should’ve said ” I’ve advised him not to comment on any ongoing investigations and we BELIEVE he is innocent and will be cleared of any wrong doings.”

    Semantics, I know.

    He tried to remove his stuff from the truck himself, and in the process damaged the property of someone elses that was also on the truck. Purposely damaged it according to the truck driver.

  15. The NFL should be forced to pay AB’s bond for forcing him out of the league and destroying his life.
    This whole B.S. case looks like a setup by the NFL to justify their previous actions.

  16. This is one bill he better pay. Bail Bondsmen won’t wait outside the house. They will knock down the door and drag him back to jail.

  17. Sad to see just how crazy AB’s actions have become. The appearance of attempt by Burfect to maim him failed physically, but AB hasn’t seemed himself since. One too many head injuries is a fairly logical long distance explanation. I saw somewhere that he has a concealed carry permit, and if they have red flag laws in FL, this would be a prime example of a time to exercise that power and save his or someone’s life pending getting himself right. Red flag laws or not, it’s time to revoke his permit until he’s at least sane enough for his own agent to represent him again.
