According to online records, Antonio Brown, a former wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is currently under arrest in Florida.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, Brown was placed under arrest for a misdemeanor battery case. At this point, he has not been arrested.
Brown refused to leave South Tampa when law enforcement tried to serve him with an arrest warrant.
According to police, the warrant stems out of a “verbal altercation” at South Tampa’s home that Brown and another woman had on Monday afternoon.
“Eventually, the argument escalated into physicality when the suspect threw his shoe at the victim.  ;Police released a statement saying that the suspect tried to expel the victim and locked her out.
According to reports, Brown threatened to shoot the victim if the victim tried to enter the house.
According to Steelers Now, citing court documents, the Tampa Police Department submitted a request for a Hillsborough County risk protection order the next day. However, the judge denied the petition.
State law allows law enforcement to issue orders of protection that can restrict firearm access for up to one year to individuals who are considered “significantly in danger” of harming themselves or others.
Brown’s latest legal problem comes just over a year after he was ordered by a moving truck driver to pay $1.2 million for an alleged assault in February 2020.
According to court documents, Anton Tumanov and Brown had a dispute about the payment of service for delivering something at Brown’s home. Tumanov claimed Brown had hit him repeatedly, causing “severe bodily injury,” which was investigated by police.
Brown was arrested but he settled with the prosecutors in June 2020. He agreed to community service hours and probation as well as anger management courses.
Brown was sued by Tumanov, however, in May 2021. He was awarded $407,040.80 for past and future medical expenses and $792,959.20 for pain and suffering.
Brown played his last NFL game for Tampa Bay on Jan. 2, when he famously walked off MetLife Stadium’s field with the Bucs trailing New York Jets.
