TMZ: Antonio Brown Allegedly Assaulted Truck Driver, Threw Rock at Vehicle

Steven Senne/Associated Press

Antonio Brown has been accused of assaulting a truck driver who was delivering previously stored items to the former NFL receiver, according to TMZ Sports.  Official documents obtained by TMZ allege Brown refused the £4,000 payment owed to the driver, then threw a rock at the truck when he tried to drive away without unloading Brown’s items. An ensuing argument allegedly led to Brown physically striking the driver before being restrained.

Trainer Glenn Holt allegedly grabbed the driver’s keys and attempted to unload Brown’s property before the driver tried to get the keys back, resulting in a scuffle. The driver said he suffered scratches on his neck, shoulder, stomach and forearm as well as cuts on his finger. Holt was arrested and charged with burglary with battery, while police are still investigating Brown’s role, according to Chris Bumbaca of USA Today.

Per Bumbaca, Brown had “locked himself in his house” while police attempted to contact him. Per TMZ, the documents stated Brown and his friends eventually got the keys from the driver and unloaded the truck themselves. However, they allegedly caused damage to other clients’ property in the process.

Brown allegedly also failed to pay for damage to the vehicle, which included a dent and chipped paint. The incident comes after he posted an Instagram live video yelling at police officers and the mother of his children in front of his kids. The 31-year-old–who spent most of the preseason in a dispute with the league over his helmet–was cut by the Oakland Raiders in September following a confrontation with GM Mike Mayock.

Later that month, Brown’s former trainer filed a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault and sexual misconduct. Six days later, another woman accused Brown of sexual misconduct and later said he had sent her threatening text messages after her story went public. The allegations are still under investigation by the NFL.

Brown signed with the New England Patriots on Sept.

8, but he was released after playing in just one game and has remained unsigned since.
