NFL: Antonio Brown targeted by an arrest warrant

Tampa police have issued an arrest warrant for former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown.

The warrant lists an incident of domestic violence involving a woman.

Tampa police say they have made several attempts to arrest Brown, but have denied a rumor that they confronted the suspect after he locked himself in his residence.

Officers say Brown hasn’t been in contact with them and they’re not even sure he’s at his house, but they don’t want to risk the officers’ safety by asking them to enter it by force.

Last Monday, Brown got into a verbal altercation with a woman at his South Tampa residence. The spat turned into a physical altercation and, according to police, Brown threw a shoe at the victim. Brown also attempted to evict the woman from the house by locking her outside.

The following day, a judge denied a request for a temporary protective order to prevent him from possessing firearms or ammunition if he was deemed a threat to himself or others.

Brown, 34, has had all kinds of run-ins with the law over the past few years, especially since he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Jan. 6 after leaving the field against the New York Jets while retiring his sweater and gloves and throwing them into the stands.
