Hollywood Police issue warrant for Antonio Brown’s arrest

HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Hollywood Police have issued a warrant for former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown’s arrest in connection to an altercation that took place outside his home.

According to police, the warrant was issued at around 9:30 p.m., Tuesday.

Brown faces charges that include one count of burglary with battery, one count of burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and one count of criminal mischief less than $1,000, police said.

Police confirmed Brown’s arrest warrant minutes before Glenn Holt, his trainer, walked out of the Broward County Jail, Wednesday night, who faces similar charges related to the incident.

Holt was arrested after he allegedly assaulted the driver of a moving truck that was parked in front of the athlete’s multimillion dollar home at around 2 p.m., Tuesday.

The argument between Brown, Holt and the truck driver started, according to Holt’s arrest affidavit, over a $4,000 payment for a delivery of Brown’s belongings.

In a recently released 911 call, the truck’s driver could be heard pleading for help.

“Yes, ma’am, I have a situation here,” the driver told the emergency operator. “The guy, he’s high. He smoked. He threatened me. He’s trying to fight. He throw stones in my truck.”

“I need to get his description,” the dispatcher replied. “Yes, sir, can you hear me?”

“Yes, he is the black guy,” the driver said. “His name Antonio Brown. Probably footballist player, NFL player.”

Police said Brown pulled the driver from the truck and threw a rock at the driver’s side door, causing a small dent and paint chip.

According to Holt’s arrest report, the trainer then took the keys from the truck and began removing items from the back of the truck.

Holt faces one count of burglary with battery and has since bonded out of the Broward County Jail.

When asked why he faces charges in this case, Holt said as he left the jail, “I’m trying to figure the same thing out.”

Officers who responded to the former NFL star’s home on Tuesday tried to make contact with Brown, but they were not successful, police said.

Brown posted a video of himself walking around his neighborhood without a shirt, Wednesday morning.

In a social media post, the mother of Brown’s children said, in part, “My hope is that Antonio will get help and seek the mental health treatment that he so desperately needs.”

It remains unclear exactly when Brown will be arrested.

Police said they hope the wide receiver will soon turn himself in.
