Police originally hoped Brown "would surrender peacefully", but former Steelers receiver shut himself up at home and refused to cooperate.
It was only a matter when, not if the 911 call made to authorities about Antonio Brown allegedly attacking a moving truck and its driver outside of his Florida home was released. Holt was apparently charged with felony burglary and battery, according to USA Today. This occurred after he and Brown allegedly battered a moving truck driver who was bringing various items to Brown's house.
The driver then attempted to drive away before Brown picked up a rock and threw it at the truck, causing a dent and paint chipping in the driver's side door. The driver said Brown forced his way into the truck cabin and hit him, and that Holt later took the truck keys from the driver so Brown could unload his property.

However, things began to go downhill quickly when the driver arrived, and Brown refused to pay him the $4,000 fee he owed him. The victim said he suffered injuries, including scratches on the neck, shoulders and forearm, as well as a cut on the tip of his finger, according to the complaint.
Hollywood police spokesman Christian Latta informed ESPN that 31-year-old Brown is being charged with a felony and two misdemeanors in the episode - burglary with battery along with burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief. The driver then called police to report the damage.
However, an arrest warrant has since been issued for Brown for burglary with battery as well. The warrant warns officers to "use caution when approaching Brown" because he has a concealed weapons permit and "is known to carry" firearms.More news: First phase of Meng Wanzhou extradition hearing to conclude today
