According to reports, the Hollywood, Florida, police are ready to serve an arrest warrant on former NFL player Antonio Brown.

Brown reportedly shut himself up in his house on Wednesday ahead of rumors that a warrant may be forthcoming.

The warrant is in connection with an accusation that he assaulted a moving truck driver on Tuesday.

Brown was not arrested immediately after the incident, but his trainer, Glen Holt. Holt was charged with felony burglary and battery, according to USA Today.

The former Pittsburgh Steeler still has a mounting number of legal troubles. For one, he is being investigated for sexual assault of a woman in Florida.

The local police, though, have been to Brown’s home time and again as he and Chelsie Kyriss, his ex-girlfriend involve themselves in one tussle after another.

The police were called to Brown’s home when Brown accused Kyriss of trying to steal one of his cars. And before that, they were sent to the home when the couple began fighting when Brown served Kyriss an eviction notice.

The police have also about had enough of Brown. After the repeated visits to his house, Brown tried to make amends by donating money to the Hollywood Police Athletic League. but the department rejected the donation saying that Brown is not a worthy role model.

“We made the decision to sever ties between Mr. Brown and the Hollywood Police Athletic League. We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown,” a spokesman for the department said.

On Monday, the player also lost his sports agent, Drew Rosenhaus, who said he was prepared to cut him as a client unless he gets some mental health help.

Brown’s last team, the New England Patriots, cut him when he was hit with the latest accusations of sexual assault.
