On Tuesday, there was yet another issue going on with Antonio Brown when a report suggested there was a "heavy" police presence outside his Florida home. Brown's trainer, Glen Holt, was taken into custody following the incident and charged with "burglary with batter".

Police didn't immediately identify the alleged victim or what prompted the confrontation.

While police have not had success contacting Brown, the free agent did send a couple of tweets on Wednesday morning.

"When officers arrived on scene they did make contact with a victim who stated he was a victim of battery", Hollywood Police spokesman Christian Lata said, the station reported. As of yet, he has not been arrested or charged.

Antonio Brown's ex-girlfriend said the embattled wide receiver "desperately needs" mental health treatment.

After burning bridges in Pittsburgh, Brown was traded to the Oakland Raiders where he made a stink over his helmet, eventually blowing that situation so far our of proportion that they, too, cut their losses and sent him packing.

Brown, 31, had a profanity-laced outburst toward police and the mother of his children that he streamed live on his Instagram account earlier this month. The department no longer accepts Brown's contribution to their police athletic league and he has subsequently been banned from its workout facility.

Brown ended up having a cup of coffee in New England, again stirring the pot to the point of his release, and then going on a public rampage against owner Robert Kraft and other members of the team.

Brown's former trainer Britney Taylor filed a lawsuit against Brown in September accusing him of three separate incidents of rape and sexual assault.
