Antonio Brown arrest warrant: What to know about the burglary and battery charge, investigation

Quote

 

https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/antonio-brown-arrest-battery-charge-investigation/v8in93slf16u1s0ml3p20eplp

Antonio Brown and his trainer are facing criminal charges after allegedly engaging in a physical altercation with a truck driver Tuesday outside of Brown's home in Hollywood, Fla.

An arrest warrant was issued for Brown on Wednesday night on one count of felony burglary and battery. His trainer, Glenn Holt, was arrested at the scene Tuesday and faces an identical count of felony burglary and battery. Holt posted a $20,000 bond and was released from jail Wednesday night.

There is no option of bond attached to the arrest warrant for Brown.

Below is a summary of the events that led to the charges against Brown and Holt, based on police accounts and media reports.

Antonio Brown news

Update (9 p.m.): An arrest warrant has been issued for Brown on a felony charge of burglary and battery.

Update: (6:20 p.m.): TMZ obtained court documents that allege the incident stemmed from the moving truck driver asking Brown for $4,000 payment for helping him move belongings from California. Brown threw a rock at the truck when the spurned driver drove away, TMZ reports, and allegedly committed assault when the driver returned to again ask for his owed cash. Holt is alleged to have also participated in the altercation by taking the driver's keys and trying to swipe Brown's items from the back of the vehicle for his client.

Update (4:42 p.m.): Chelsie Kyriss, Brown's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his three kids, shared an emotional message on Instagram expressing concern for Brown, imporing his to seek mental health treatment. Kyriss said she has distanced the children from Brown to begin "a new life free from any impulsive, reckless and unhealthy behaviors."

Update (11:31 a.m.): Antonio Brown remained at his home Wednesday morning as the police investigation continued. Brown has "locked himself in his house," a public information officer told USA Today, and thus far has resisted efforts by police to contact him regarding their probe into Tuesday's incident.

"They want my name slandered," Brown posted to his Twitter account at 11:14 a.m. ET Wednesday.

 

This is a developing story and will be updated.

What happened at Antonio Brown's house?

A moving truck and its driver arrived at Antonio Brown's house Tuesday afternoon to deliver some of his belongings, according to ESPN. Police responded to a call at the residence from a person later identified as the truck driver, who accused Brown and his trainer, Glenn Holt, of battery.

The driver, who was not identified by name, told police the incident began when Brown refused to pay a $4,000 bill for the moving truck service, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. An argument over the unpaid bill started and the driver alleges Brown "forced his way into the driver's side of the main cabin and began to physically strike him," per the report.

The TMZ report said Holt then grabbed the keys from the driver and began unloading Brown's belongings, damaging other items inside the truck that did not belong to Brown.

Television cameras on site showed a large police presence.

 

Holt was arrested at the scene and charged with one count of felony burglary and battery. He was arraigned at Broward County Jail on Tuesday.

Police said they made repeated and unsuccessful attemps to question Brown in the 24 hours after the incident occured. He had remained inside or near his home Wednesday. It was unclear Wednesday night whether Brown would cooperate with the warrant and turn himself in to police.

What is a battery charge?

In Florida law, battery charges can range from misdemeanor to felony depending on the severity of the incident.

A simple battery charge is applied when a person "actually and intentionally touches or strikes another person against the will of the other; or intentionally causes bodily harm to another person." Simple battery is considered a first-degree misdemeanor in Florida and carries a sentence of up to a one year in jail.

Aggravated battery, the more serious charge, occurs when a person:

  • Intentionally or knowingly causes great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement
  • Uses a deadly weapon
  • Commits aggravated battery against a victim who was pregnant at the time of the offense and the offender knew or should have known that the victim was pregnant

Aggravated battery is usually charged as a felony in the second degree, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

 

Antonio Brown timeline

Brown, currently an NFL free agent after being cut by the Patriots, was already under investigation for an unrelated rape accusation. The league is still reviewing that case.

Last week, Brown live-streamed a video of himself yelling obscenties toward police and the mother of his children with his kids present. He threw a bag of P-shaped gummy candies at the officers. That led his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, to conditionally sever ties with him until he seeks counsel.

Brown played in only one NFL game this past season.

Antonio Brown expected to turn himself into police following arrest warrant

Quote

https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/nfl/2020/01/23/antonio-brown-hollywood-police-department-arrest-warrant/4559209002/

Josh Peter, USA TODAY Published 7:31 p.m. ET Jan. 23, 2020 | Updated 8:30 p.m. ET Jan. 23, 2020

Antonio Brown is expected to turn himself in to police, but as of Thursday afternoon they were still waiting for the star receiver to do so, according to Christian Lata, public information officer for the Hollywood Police Department in Florida.

"I believe they’ve given him ample opportunity to turn himself in,’’ Lata told USA TODAY Sports.

A warrant was issued for Brown’s arrest following an incident on Tuesday during which a moving truck driver was allegedly assaulted at Brown’s home in Hollywood. Lata said the warrant was "the safest way’’ to take Brown into custody and that he expected Brown would comply with the warrant.

"I’m sure it’s going to be within today or tomorrow, but I’m not sure exactly when,’’ Lata said late Thursday afternoon. "I would assume it would be sooner than later.’’

When police arrived at Brown’s house Wednesday to investigate the alleged incident, they arrested Glenn Holt, Brown’s trainer, who was charged with burglary and battery. But Brown refused to cooperate with police that day, according to Lata.

"Antonio Brown actually ran into his house and locked the door and closed the door,’’ Lata said. "He went into his house and just stayed inside the house and wouldn’t come out.’’

Officers reached Brown by phone that day, according to Lata.

"They were able to talk to him and he basically said he wasn’t coming out,’’ Lata said.

Police gathered further evidence from witnesses and the alleged victim before successfully obtaining an arrest warrant for Brown.

Lata said he thinks officers have been in contact with an attorney representing Brown and that Holt, who has been released following his arrest, also is trying to assist with the situation.

Good lord... He turned himself in last night. Was put on suicide watch and had to wear a suicide smock to court. Has to wear a gps ankle bracelet, anddo drug/alcohol test. No more passport. No more guns...  Not to mention, his bail is 5x as much as his cohort. Oh, and the judge is making him get a mental health eval.

It's fun to make fun of him (to an extent), but not to the extent that he has true mental health issues and might potentially kill himself. It's gone from 'fun entertainment', to just plain sad and alarming.

I hope he gets the help that he seems to desperately need and that this doesn't turn into a tragic ending.

Antonio Brown released after posting $110K bond

Quote

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/28554043/antonio-brown-released-posting-110k-bond

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Antonio Brown was granted bail by a Broward County judge at a hearing Friday morning, and was released from jail on bond early in the afternoon while wearing an ankle monitor.

The free-agent wide receiver was picked up by his lawyer and ran to get into the car.

Brown's bond was set at $100,000 for a felony burglary with battery charge. The total bond for three charges, stemming from an alleged assault of a moving truck driver earlier this week, is $110,000. Brown will be monitored by GPS and be required to release his passport and guns, go through drug and alcohol testing, and get a mental health evaluation.

The hearing was longer than normal and got contentious at times with back-and-forth arguments.

Brown watched the proceedings from another room via teleconference while wearing an anti-suicide smock, a typical precautionary safety method used for high-profile suspects in custody. He largely remained quiet, except when addressed by the judge.

The prosecutors asked that Brown receive no bond, citing his financial status, him being a potential flight risk and his recent instability. Brown's lawyers -- Eric Schwartzreich and Lorne Berkeley -- successfully fought for bond and accepted the judge's requirements for release.

A lingering issue in the courtroom was Brown's mental state. The prosecutors brought up the fact that Brown's former agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and the mother of three of Brown's children, Chelsie Kyriss, both had requested for him to receive mental health help because of his sporadic, impulsive behavior.

The judge ordered a mental health evaluation within 10 days of Brown's release from jail, but Schwartzreich doesn't think that is a major factor in this case.

"I don't think there's any mental health issues with him. Antonio Brown's life right now is a reality show," Schwartzreich said. "He is misinterpreted and misunderstood. He's not guilty of these charges. He did not commit a felony battery. In this case, when all the facts come out, you will see he will be vindicated and he will be found not guilty."

Brown is facing charges of felony burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief less than $1,000. He turned himself in on Thursday to Broward County Jail, where he spent the night.

The felony with battery charge is the most serious of the offenses and can be punishable by up to life in prison.

"They overcharged him," Berkeley said. "Once a thorough investigation is done, we believe the charges filed will most likely be very different than they are right now."

Prosecutors say Brown is accused of throwing a rock at the driver's moving truck, then later forcing his way into the driver's side of the main cabin of the truck and striking the driver after a disagreement over payment escalated outside of Brown's home Tuesday.

The arrest warrant obtained by ESPN specifically says Brown "physically pulled and grabbed" the victim, causing multiple abrasions and a ripped shirt.

During the hearing Friday, prosecutors said one of Brown's associates assured him that they would get Brown to turn himself in because, "Who do you think was the one to pull him off of the guy?"

Brown's trainer, Glenn Holt, was arrested Tuesday on a felony burglary with battery charge stemming from the incident. He was released Wednesday after posting a $20,000 bond.

Both Brown's lawyers and the prosecutors expect this to be a lengthy case.

"He turned himself in. He did the right thing. He surrendered. He's concerned for the charges and rightfully so," Schwartzreich said. "He's ready for this fight. He's ready for his vindication. It's going to take some time, but we are going to put the train on that track."

 

So if he's convicted and were to get the maximum sentence, he'd go to prison for life. Of course, he won't get life in prison. But that's the max time that he technically faces.

That judge is his guardian angel right now. His bail conditions are exactly what he needs.  Now he needs a good life coach to stand beside him and guide him through this    .  

do everything the judge is asking and then some and he could make a comeback maybe in a year or two

Forcing him to go isn't going to fix this. He needs to want to go on his own and accept that he has issues.

Yeah. But this is as close to rock bottom as you can get. One false move now and he can say bye bye to his freedom.

He was a typical flamboyant WR before the Burfect hit and concussion. Since he has steadily spiraled down. Not a doctor or expert by any stretch but I would be surprised if that is the cause.

Well h has had his BS all the way back to college obviously not on this level but still was a dbag. It did seem to get worse after the burfict hit but it also was escalating with the more he got away with and the more money he got. Could be a combination of both or he is showing his true self

I dunno. A lot of WRs are weird divas and he was definitely in that group, but he was not disruptive to the team or self destructive. Unless there was something I dont remember.

He video taped the lockeroom stuff after the team told him to stop recording stuff that goes on in the lockeroom. Facebook paid him to do it. He has had a run in with teammates before . He was expelled from the first college he went too. Cte seems to gradually take over. Not turn you into a lunatic immediately after a hit like he has. Like I said could be a combination but, he has done questionable things before and it was getting worse the more money and fame he was recieving along with that hit.
