Former NFL receiver Antonio Brown granted bond in Florida

Former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown will be a free man once again on Friday. This comes after he turned himself into the authorities on Thursday night. 

Brown had an active warrant out for his arrest following an altercation with a moving company on Tuesday outside of his residence in Hollywood, Florida. Police attempted to reach Brown on Tuesday and Wednesday; however, those attempts were not successful.

He met with a judge on Friday morning. The judge set his bond at $100,000. Those are also not the only requirements of his bond. 

The judge also requested that Brown — who has had several troubling incidents this month — to undergo a mental health evaluation. Also, the former star receiver must turn over his passport so that he cannot leave the country. 

Brown — who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots in the NFL — must also wear a GPS monitor for the foreseeable future. He will have to wear this, according to the judge, until the case is resolved. 

A moving company reportedly was told to bring Brown’s belongings from his California residence to his Florida residence. After the truck arrived in Florida, Brown had an altercation with the driver.

First, it began with Brown allegedly throwing a rock at the truck. The rock caused down to the truck, so the driver called the authorities.

The driver asked Brown for $4,000 to cover the expenses for the job. At first, he refused.

But after talking with his company, the driver asked for another $1,000 for damage to the truck and lost work time. Brown refused to pay the additional money, but did pay him $4,000.

As Brown and his associates were removing items from the truck, they also damaged other belongings.

Once Brown saw that the cops were coming, he locked himself inside and did not answer when the cops tried to talk to him.

Earlier this month, he berated his former girlfriend Chelsie Kyriss and officers, who responded to Brown’s house. He live streamed the entire thing on Instagram.

This caused officers to refund a donation that Brown made to a youth league. His former lawyer Darren Heitner and sports agent Drew Rosenhaus terminated their working relationship with him over this incident with Kyriss.
