Police in Hollywood, Florida, issued an arrest warrant for Antonio Brown late Wednesday, ESPN reports. Police spokesman Christian Latta said the former NFL star faces felony charges of burglary with battery, as well as burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief. Brown's trainer Glenn Holt was arrested Tuesday over his role in the incident, and posted bail Wednesday. It is believed that police will wait until Thursday for Brown to turn himself in, and if he doesn't, will then arrest him. Police say Brown has so far ignored their requests to speak to them about the incident outside his home involving a moving truck driver. According to documents reviewed by TMZ, Brown allegedly threw a rock and damaged the truck which contained his belongings, and later he and Holt forced their way into the cabin and struck the driver, reportedly over a disagreement about payment. The driver claims he sustained injuries from the incident. Brown only played in one NFL game this season, and is currently prohibited from playing while under league investigation for other off-field incidents.
