A judge in Miami-Dade County, Florida, ordered Former Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown for failed child support payments, TMZ reports.
The ruling came down on August 9th, when Antonio Brown failed to pay over $15,000 to Wiltrice Jackson. Brown is ordered to pay the $15,000 missed child support and $5,000 in attorney fees. This is the second time Brown had a warrant issued in connection to missed child support payments this year. In April, a judge ordered law enforcement to bring Brown into custody after he failed to pay $30,000 in child support payments. However, Brown paid before that occurred.
Brown has a daughter with the plaintiff of the case, Jackson. The former Steelers star, often embroiled in consistent drama lands him in negative news. The most recent example continues Brown’s escapades off football near the end of his career and now following it.
Brown, 34, became one of the most dominant receivers in NFL history in his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2010-18, but since then has caused a slew of on- and off-the-field issues, including several lawsuits, arrests, sexual assault allegations, and a lengthy suspension. His last on-field game came in 2021, where he ran shirtless off the field against the New York Jets.
This spring, Brown purchased an interest in the Albany Empire, the successor to the indoor team that his father, “Touchdown” Eddie Brown played for. Eddie Brown acts as the team’s general manager, and Antonio, to turn around the fortunes of a team struggling at the gate and in the standings, said he planned to play in a game but never did before the league bounced the team from the league altogether.
