Why was Antonio Brown’s Arrest warrant issued in Tampa?
Antonio Brown’s arrest warrant was issued on Thursday by Police in Tampa for the former NFL wide receiver.
The active warrant arises from a domestic battery happening affecting a woman, Tampa Police declared.
On Nov. 28 at around 1:30 p.m., Brown and the woman were concerned in a verbal fight at his home in South Tampa. The dispute became physical, and according to police, Brown threw a shoe at the victim. Brown also tried to evict the woman from the home by shutting her out.
On Nov. 29, a judge rejected a requisition for a temporary risk security order to prevent him from possessing firearms or being shot if he was believed a threat to himself or others.
Brown was removed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Jan. 6 after he jogged off the area against the New York Jets, displaying erratic behavior, including throwing his shirt and gloves into the stands. Brown has not suited up for another team and has been focusing on his music career.
Brown has had several previous run-ins with the law. Last month he was instructed to pay $1.2 million to a Broward County moving truck driver after he was charged with attacking the driver, for which Brown claimed no contest. He accepted two years probation, which was removed one year early for right behavior.
