Police have arrested Antonio Brown’s trainer in connection with a Tuesday incident at Brown’s Florida home.

The Hollywood Police Department says that a man claims that Brown and his trainer Glen Holt “battered” him, prompting a 911 call to Brown’s residence around 2 p.m, according to multiple reports.

Police ‘unsuccessful’ in attempt to contact Brown

Holt is charged with one count of burglary with battery, while attempts to make contact with Brown were “unsuccessful,” according to police. Brown is a suspect, but is not currently facing charges, ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe reports.

Police expect to provide another update on Brown’s status sometime Wednesday morning, according to Wolfe.

Incident reportedly involved moving crew

The incident reportedly involved the driver and crew of a moving truck that was seen outside of Brown’s home.

TMZ first reported that a large police presence arrived at his home and that Brown has been accused of felony battery and burglary involving a driver who works for a moving company.

A live-stream of a WPLG camera showed police cars and a large 18-wheel truck lined up outside of what WJAC reports is Brown’s home.

The truck left the vicinity later in the day followed by police vehicles.

More trouble for Brown

The news is the latest trouble for Brown, whom Hollywood PD cut ties with after a public tirade outside his home last Monday. Antonio Brown live-streamed a profane outburst at police outside his house as his children and their mother watched.

Police had maintained a relationship with Brown in spite of his recent legal troubles as he made donations to the department’s Police Athletic League football team and used their facilities to work out.

He is no longer welcome at their facilities.

Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus has since reportedly “conditionally” terminated his relationship with him until he seeks counseling.

Brown hasn’t played since rape allegations

Brown, a 31-year-old seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, hasn’t worked in the NFL since being released by the New England Patriots after Week 2 in light of rape allegations against him.

Brown’s former trainer Britney Taylor filed a lawsuit against Brown in September accusing him of three separate incidents of rape and sexual assault.

Another woman accused Brown of sexual misconduct when she was hired to work as an artist in his Pittsburgh home while he was a member of the Steelers in 2017.
