Judge orders removal of Antonio Brown’s GPS monitor

After Antonio Brown was arrested last week, a judge in Broward County ruled that he must wear a GPS monitor on his ankle while awaiting resolution of battery charges.

Brown posted a video to his Instagram story on Tuesday saying the monitor would be coming off and that became a reality a short time later. Per the Associated Press, Circuit Court Judge Michael Usan said that Brown’s monitor could come off so that he can travel to fulfill business obligations.

Brown was freed on $110,000 bail, which remains in place, and he still has to surrender his passport, undergo a mental health evaluation and relinquish any firearms.

Those edicts were put in place after Brown was arrested on charges of burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief following an incident with a moving truck driver outside of his home.

  1. Brown needs a GPS tracker for his brain to track his thought process so he can be stoped before doing something stupid.

  2. Yeah ’cause we’re pretty sure his location will be monitored completely by the mass of MSM camped outside his house waiting for him to so much as look out the window……….

  3. Business obligations? I’d love to know what sort of business this clown is involved in and how he convinced a judge that it would be a good idea to let him do it.

  4. Judge is right. I’d imagine you wouldn’t get any resolution on your monitor, even one tiny enough to put on your ankle which can come with a small battery, unless it charges properly.

  5. Business Obligation…what business obligations? Oh wait, those are the ones where he requests some type of service and then fails to pay for said service…gotcha!!!

  6. I’ve noticed the surest way to get downvotes on this site is to agree that Antonio Brown should be treated fairly by the judicial system and afforded opportunities to continue making money and paying taxes while the process plays out. But yeah send him upriver for life that seems totally rational.

  7. “The clown just wants to make a show at Superbowl”

    Could easily be the case. He knows the league doesn’t want him anywhere near the big game and all the events going on around it.

    What could go wrong if he turns up there after all?

  8. “I hope this judge will be held accountable when Brown hurts someone…”

    You do realize that an ankle monitor is not some kind of shock collar or electric fence that prevents someone from going anywhere? Someone wearing an ankle monitor is free to go anywhere they wish and hurt whomever they want to. Of course, they will face escape charges once they are caught, but the thought that the judge’s decision is increasing the danger to anyone is simply ludicrous.

  9. Travel? Could you imagine being stuck on a plane with this dude. Actually I can’t imagine him ever taking a public flight, which why he’ll be broke sooner, rather than later.

  10. If his head was monitored,the signal from his brain wouldn’t be strong enough to make it to the GPS unit.

  11. Its very frustrating how fast the haters and MSM condemn based on lies and heresay and how slow the justice system slow walks the truth.
    The removal of the monitor is the first step and a clue that those who have been targeting him to exploit his money and fame for their own benefit are on notice that they are about to be exposed.

  12. Quoting AP story, “Circuit Judge Michael Usan agreed to let Brown travel freely within the United States so he can fulfill contractual obligations with ESPN and comedian Kevin Hart, according to news reports. Instead of wearing an ankle GPS monitor, Brown, 31, will have to check in with court personnel daily.”

  13. “So that he can travel to fulfill business obligations.” This made me think of The Big Lebowski when he’s reporting his stolen briefcase to the police. He claims it is filled with his “business papers”. Then when asked what he does for a living, he confesses to being unemployed. I’m sure AB has other means of business other than football, but I couldn’t help but find the situation funny.

  14. It’s Broward County. They love to release criminals on the general public then use that terror to get the rubes to vote for more government to “keep them safe”.

    Nope. The surest way to get downvotes on this site is to say something that can be construed as supporting the Patriots or Patriots fans. It’s like Pavlov’s dogs.

    Can we please move on from this train wreck. He’s no longer in the NFL.

    +++++++++++++

    Was Kobe considered part of the NBA?

    Without the NFL, would you know (or even care) about Antonio Brown?

    Besides, this is ratings gold for websites, waiting for the next rock to be thrown.

  17. Not optimistic he will follow the terms of his release on bond. Rules don’t sit well with AB.

    LOL this is the funniest thing I have seen today. Wait, you did mean it as a joke, right? RIGHT? AB has been very clearly controlling his own story, and we have all read it from chapter 1, and the synopsis is “I’m completely coming apart”. Pretending other people or agencies are to blame is just plain silly. But if I recall correctly, you wrote something similar before this.

  19. Please what a lame excuse a judge looks the other way but throw the book at one getting a DUI. Only in America

  20. Of course he has business obligations. My guess, he’s selling off most of his assets and begging banks to extend his credit because he’s moments away from being broke.

  21. There are obviously too many liberal judges in our court system! AB’s problem is nobody ever told him NO!

  22. AB has been quiet for a couple days there’s a storm brewing. Since AB doesn’t seem to want to take money from the XFL there’s always Uber, Lyft and pizza delivery.
    He should be able to really have business booming with all the tips he’ll make.

  23. Those GPS monitors are not tracked in real time anyway so who cares. Just like any other “crime tool” it is only good for after the fact.

  24. “The removal of the monitor is the first step and a clue that those who have been targeting him to exploit his money and fame for their own benefit are on notice that they are about to be exposed.”

    That’s hilarious. Utterly and totally delusional but hilarious nonetheless

  25. OK – stop with AB. Who cares? Loser dude. Put him in an asylum for his own protection. M/b he get help there – no help so far in past 4 years. Hope he doesn’t kill anyone. He need help.
