Charges Dropped, Warrant Recalled Against Antonio Brown



Former Steelers wideout Antonio Brown

Misdemeanor battery charges were dropped and the warrant for the arrest of former Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was recalled on Wednesday after they were filed three weeks ago, according to Fox13.

Brown was reportedly in a standoff with police three weeks ago and he had blockaded himself into his house in Tampa, Fla. during the exchange. The woman who accused Brown of battery told police that he had weapons in the house and to proceed with caution.

However, now, after reviewing the case, all charges have now been dropped against Brown. State Attorney Susan S. Lopez informed Brown that the charges no longer existed and that the case against him was terminated. As such, Brown is now free to do as he pleases with the warrant gone.

The initial details reported by TMZ stated that Brown got into a dispute with the mother of his children. Police reported to the residence where Brown was in an altercation with the woman. The police told Fox 13 that Brown “threw a shoe at the victim striking her in the ponytail”. Brown would lock himself in a room when police arrived and deposed the woman’s belongings onto the street below.

A sixth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Antonio Brown spent nine seasons in Pittsburgh, where he was regarded as one of the league’s top wideouts. He was traded to Oakland after the 2018 campaign but never played a regular-season snap for the Raiders. He then played in New England and Tampa Bay before abruptly leaving a game last season.
