Antonio Brown arrested in Florida after the former NFL star turned himself in to Police Thursday night following accusations that he and his trainer attacked the driver of a moving truck that carried some of his possessions from California.
Brown, 31, arrived at Broward County Jail around 10 p.m. wearing a turquoise suit buttoned over a green athletic jacket, walked out of the jail a few minutes after arriving.
But after conferring with his lawyer Brown returned and indicated that he would spend the night behind bars.
“He’s innocent of these charges. Hopefully, we’ll get bond tomorrow and he’ll be acquitted of all charges,” attorney Eric Schwartzreich told WFOR-TV.
A Hollywood police statement said Brown’s arrest warrant included charges of burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief.
Officials responded Tuesday afternoon to a disturbance call where the alleged victim said Brown and his trainer, Glenn Holt, hit him outside Brown’s Hollywood home.
Holt was arrested and charged with one count of burglary with battery, but officials couldn’t make contact with Brown at the time.
The Miami Herald reported, citing an officer’s arrest report, that it began as an argument over Brown’s refusal to pay $4,000 to the driver to release his household goods.
