Antonio Brown, the former NFL wide receiver, found himself in legal trouble once again as he was arrested in Dania Beach, Florida, on Sunday for allegedly failing to meet child support obligations to one of his children’s mothers.
Fox News Digital obtained details from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, which revealed that Brown was apprehended outside his residence while preparing to enter a taxi. The arresting officer identified Brown and discovered an active arrest warrant, classified as a writ of bodily attachment, related to unpaid child support. This type of warrant is typical in child custody cases.
The arrest took place at 3:19 p.m. on Sunday, with Brown subsequently being released on a $15,000 bond.
The mother of Brown’s daughter, Antanyiah, Wiltrice Johnson, informed TMZ that the former Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver owes approximately $31,000 in child support.
An earlier court ruling from August confirmed that Brown had fallen behind on his child support payments, but there have been no significant developments in the case since.
Following his release, Brown returned to social media, a platform he frequently uses to share updates about his life. He was observed visiting a jewelry store in Maryland and later participating in a video shoot in front of a yellow Lamborghini, as per his Instagram Stories.
Brown’s post-NFL career has been marred by numerous controversies, including a recent incident in Tallahassee, Florida, where he was captured on video removing his pants and stripping down to his underwear on a sidewalk after a rap concert at Potbelly’s, as reported by the Tallahassee Democrat. Remarkably, he threw his pants into the crowd while his cell phone was still inside one of the pockets.
Additionally, Brown was ousted from an arena football league due to his failure to meet financial obligations as the owner of the Albany Empire.
Remaining a free agent in the NFL, Brown has been vocal on social media, both referencing the possibility of reuniting with his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and criticizing the team’s offensive coordinator, Matt Canada.
