Police respond to South Florida home of former NFL star Antonio Brown

There is a large police presence at the South Florida home of former NFL star wide receiver Antonio Brown on Tuesday afternoon.

Multiple police cruisers have responded to Brown's residence in Hollywood.

TMZ Sports is reporting that Brown is not in custody, but the news agency described it as an "active scene."

A police source tells TMZ Sports that Brown is accused of felony battery and burglary for an incident involving a moving truck driver, and police are working to get an arrest warrant and are trying to get Brown to surrender peacefully.

Video from the scene shows a large moving truck outside Brown's home.

No other details have been released.

Brown, a Miami native, has been one of the most dynamic wide receivers in the NFL since he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.

However, Brown was released by the New England Patriots in 2019 after sexual assault allegations surfaced against the 7-time Pro Bowler.
