Free-agent receiver Antonio Brown’s path back to the NFL continues to be more and more complicated.

Brown, already facing an NFL investigation arising from a September 2019 lawsuit for sexual assault and rape, has been charged in connection with a January 2020 incident arising from an altercation with the driver of a moving truck.

Via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com, authorities in Broward County, Florida officially have charged Brown with felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery, and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Brown previously had been charged with felony burglary with battery after allegedly refusing the pay the driver for moving expenses and then physically accosting the driver, before Brown removed his items from the truck. Per Fowler, that charge was not included in the official list of counts Brown faces.

The coronavirus pandemic undoubtedly will delay the processing of these charges. The NFL surely will investigate and discipline Brown, regardless of the outcome of the criminal case.

  1. In the UK we call businesses in that line of work removal companies, moving trucks are not a thing over here. So the first time I read the story I pictured AB trying to fight a truck driver as he drove by, and given the way he was behaving at the time that seemed entirely possible.

  2. Who cares !!! He has had his chances and burned them all up. Go away!

  3. Eventually, at some point, he’ll be a Cowboy this season or next. They need we help and Jerry desperately wants another super bowl.

  4. AB went from superstar to crazy and gone in the span of a few months.
    What a waste of talent.

  5. Shame such an all world talent was on the road to a straight path to Canton ended up being a coo coo bird.
