Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown is reportedly under investigation for alleged battery and burglary in Florida.

According to TMZ, Brown is being accused of felony burglary and battery involving a moving company driver. Brown has not been arrested as of publication. However, TMZ reported police are working on getting a warrant for Brown's arrest, with the hope he will "surrender peacefully."

A police spokesperson subsequently confirmed to ESPN that Brown is a suspect in the incident.

ESPN's Cameron Wolfe later reported Brown's trainer, Glen Holt, was arrested for felony burglary and battery. He added that the moving truck driver cited Holt and Brown as the alleged culprits and that officers were unsuccessful in their attempts to contact Brown.

Brown was involved in an incident with Hollywood police earlier this month following an argument with the mother of his children. In a video Brown broadcast on Instagram Live, he's heard yelling profanities at the police and at the woman in front of the children.

The incident led to the Hollywood Police Athletic League severing its relationship with Brown.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus recently ended his working relationship with Brown, saying he would not represent the player any longer until he received help, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Brown has been out of football since the New England Patriots released him in September. The Patriots cut Brown after his former trainer filed a federal lawsuit accusing him of sexual misconduct and sexual assault and another woman accused Brown of sexual misconduct. Per Sports Illustrated, the second woman said Brown also sent her threatening text messages after her accusation went public.

The NFL has been investigating the claims over the last four months but has not yet released its findings. The New Orleans Saints are the only team to give Brown a workout since his release in New England.
