Add battery to the list of crimes that former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown has been suspected or accused of committing.
Brown, who has been linked to everything from sexual assault to endangering children to verbal harassment, is suspected of helping his personal trainer batter a driver of a moving truck outside of his Florida home on Tuesday.
The alleged victim told police Brown and his trainer, Glen Holt, hit him while he was delivering belongings to the star WR’s home in Hollywood. Holt was charged with one count of felony burglary and battery but officers’ attempts to make contact with Brown were unsuccessful, said Hollywood police spokesman Christian Latta.
Police, who didn’t immediately identify what prompted the alleged confrontation, are continuing to investigate the incident and could still bring battery charges against Brown.
The 31-year-old, who has not been taken into custody or charged in the alleged incident at this time, has surprisingly not tweeted about the situation. He has however shared a new NSFW track on his Twitter feed.
