Antonio Brown can’t seem to catch a break from controversies. Right from his NFL days to his present-day shenanigans, the former wide receiver has always been wrapped in headlines. However, it looks like the sun has risen on AB’s fortunes. And his episode with the cops has taken a turn in his favor.

Recently, the former Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star shocked many when news of a police standoff between Brown and the Tampa Police floated around. These weren’t true. However, the cops did issue an arrest warrant for Antonio Brown on misdemeanour charges of domestic violence after he threw a shoe at a woman who is also the mother of his children. The altercation broke out on November 28.

Brown won a Super Bowl with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before foraying into his music career.

He then skipped practice for a week before ultimately deciding to leave the Steelers. He refused to wear league mandate helmets and left the Raiders. Brown’s Patriots journey also ended when his physical assault civil lawsuit became public news.

When former Bucs HC Bruce Arians took Brown out of the game in his final game, AB wasn’t having it. Brown took off his Buccaneers jersey and danced off the field, waving to the crowd, shirtless.
