Antonio Brown Arrest Warrant Issued In Tampa For Leaving Incriminating Scene

The Tampa Police Department issued an arrest warrant Thursday for former NFL player Antonio Brown.

A woman's domestic battery case is the reason that the Commissioner's Office issued an active warrant against someone.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. on November 28, 2018, Brown and the woman were involved in a verbal altercation at his home in the South Tampa neighborhood. The dispute escalated, and when Brown threw a shoe, the wife was assaulted. Brown also tried to bar the door and threatened to lock her out of the home, as well.

A judge denied an order on Nov. 29 to temporarily prohibit him from possessing firearms or ammunition if he was considered a threat to himself or others.

Brown was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Jan. 6 after a visual disturbance took place, in which he alienated himself and threw his clothing into the stands.

Brown has had several previous encounters with law enforcement. Last month, he was ordered to pay $1.2 million to a Broward County moving trucker after he was charged for assaulting the driver, for which Brown consistently pled no contest.

He was given two years of probation that were terminated early for good conduct.
