Former NFL star Antonio Brown a suspect in battery incident, trainer arrested

The police and the National Football League have launched yet another set of investigations regarding Antonio Brown after the troubled wide receiver and his trainer allegedly assaulted a moving truck driver.

Police believe Brown was at the home when the assault is alleged to have happened, but officers haven't been able to contact the former star wide receiver. Holt was arrested and charged with one count of burglary and battery.

Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time First Team All-Pro, doesn't seem willing to cooperate with police in this investigation, as he has boarded himself in his Hollywood, Fla. home.

Police didn't immediately identify the alleged victim or what prompted the confrontation.

Brown has not been arrested or charged, but police say the investigation is active.

This comes just days after Brown recorded himself hurling obscenities and vulgarities at the mother of his children and cops who were at his home.

It's been a little over a year since trouble started brewing in Pittsburgh after Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger got into a heated dispute that would eventually lead to the wide receiver demanding a trade and the Steelers would ultimately grant his request when they shipped him off to Oakland for a couple of draft picks. According to the police department's public information officer, Brown used "very degrading language in front of his young children" during the incident, which he live-streamed on Instagram.

The NFL is investigating Brown after his former trainer Brittney Taylor accused him of rape and sexual assault in September.

Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus has since reportedly "conditionally" terminated his relationship with him until he seeks counseling.
