Police: AB’s trainer arrested amid battery probe


HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Police are investigating a possible battery outside the home of free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown on Tuesday afternoon.

The alleged victim — a driver of a moving truck seen outside Brown’s home — said that he was “battered” by Brown and his trainer, Glen Holt.

According to police, Holt was arrested and charged with one count of burglary with battery. Police say Brown is a suspect but he has not been arrested or charged, and attempts to make contact with him were unsuccessful.

The criminal investigation is ongoing and an update from police on Brown’s status is expected before noon ET on Wednesday.

Brown’s home is located in a gated community in Hollywood where multiple neighbors told ESPN they’ve been fed up with the antics coming from the Brown home.

Last week, Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus conditionally terminated his relationship with him until the wide receiver seeks counseling, an NFL Players Association source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Rosenhaus wrote in a letter the NFLPA received Thursday that he would like to work with Brown, but not until he first gets help.

Earlier this month, Brown had an obscene outburst toward the police and the mother of his children that he streamed live on Instagram. The video was later picked up by TMZ. In it, he can be heard using explicit language and calling the police officers explicit names.

Brown, 31, wasn’t on an active roster for most of the 2019 season. He was released from the Oakland Raiders after the preseason following public demands. He was active for one game with the New England Patriots but was released shortly after, amid sexual assault allegations. The former Pittsburgh Steelers star recently had a workout with the New Orleans Saints, which he later called a publicity stunt on social media.

The NFL is investigating Brown after a lawsuit was filed by his former trainer, Britney Taylor, alleging that she was sexually assaulted by Brown on multiple occasions. Brown also was accused of sexual misconduct at his home by an artist who was working there in 2017.

The NFL has not concluded its investigation.
