Police investigate battery allegations against Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown and his trainer have been accused of battering someone at his home, police say

Antonio Brown locked self in home as police investigate battery accusations: report

Former NFL star Antonio Brown is a suspect in a case of battery at his Florida home, according to a report.

As of Wednesday morning, Lata told USA Today that Brown had "locked himself in his house", and multiple attempts to contact him have been unsuccessful. The alleged victim, the driver of a tractor-trailer moving truck, left the scene, according to the NBC 6 report.

Christian Lata, the Hollywood Police public information officer, said Holt was arraigned on Tuesday at Broward County Jail. Brown's trainer, Glen Holt, was taken into custody following the incident and charged with "burglary with batter". On Tuesday, police tried to contact Brown several times, but they didn't receive a response. Brown was also implicated in the event, and has reportedly walled himself off from society as the investigation continues.

It's been a little over a year since trouble started brewing in Pittsburgh after Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger got into a heated dispute that would eventually lead to the wide receiver demanding a trade and the Steelers would ultimately grant his request when they shipped him off to Oakland for a couple of draft picks. The department no longer accepts Brown's contribution to their police athletic league and he has subsequently been banned from its workout facility. He played one game for the New England Patriots but was released after sexual assault allegations surfaced against him.

Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus has since reportedly "conditionally" terminated his relationship with him until he seeks counseling.

Brown's former trainer Britney Taylor filed a lawsuit against Brown in September accusing him of three separate incidents of rape and sexual assault.
