Less than six months removed from being a wanted man on the free-agent market, Antonio Brown is a wanted man by Florida police.

Days after he and his trainer allegedly battered a delivery truck driver outside his Florida home, Brown had a warrant for his arrest issued by police in Hollywood.

Brown, 31, is facing a felony charge of burglary with battery and two lesser charges of burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief. Court documents allege Brown broke a window on the delivery truck with a rock and then struck the driver following a disagreement about the $4,000 delivery fee.

His trainer, Glenn Holt, has already been arrested on a felony burglary with battery charge and released after posting bail.

According to reports, Brown has locked himself in his home and has not responded to numerous attempts to contact him made by police.

Released by the Raiders prior to the season, Brown was quickly scooped up by the Patriots but played in only one game for the team before being cut after allegations of sexual assault were made against him.

Those allegations are still being investigated by the NFL and it seems increasingly likely they, along with incidents like this, may end Brown’s career playing professional football.

UPDATE: Antonio Brown has turned himself in to police and spent the night in jail, according to TMZ. On Friday morning, he was released on $100,000 bond.
