NFL free agent Antonio Brown turned himself in at a Florida jail on Thursday following accusations he and his coach attacked another guy.
Brown came in Broward County Jail around 10 p.m., as first reported by TMZ. After conferring with his lawyer the receiver, clad in turquoise pants and a blazer buttoned above a green coat, initially walked out of the jail a few minutes but returned.
In a Wednesday news release, Hollywood police said Brown’s arrest warrant added charges of burglary with battery, burglary of criminal mischief and an unoccupied conveyance. Officials responded Tuesday afternoon to a disturbance call at which the victim said Brown Glenn Holt, along with his trainer, struck on him close to the Hollywood home of Brown.
Holt was detained and charged with one count of burglary with battery, but officials couldn’t make contact at the moment with Brown.
Brown did not respond for on-camera comment to the petition of WFOR-TV, but his lawyer indicated that Brown would spend the night in jail.
“He’s innocent of these charges. Hopefully, we’ll get bond tomorrow and he’ll be acquitted of all charges,” Schwartzreich said.
Played nine seasons. He had been traded to the Oakland Raiders last year but published before ever playing a regular-season match after several off-the-field incidents. He was signed with the New England Patriots, who released Brown in September after he was accused by a woman in 10 days of sexual misconduct.
