TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Former wide receiver Antonio Brown was arrested in Florida over the weekend, according to multiple media reports. Brown was taken into custody Sunday for allegedly failing to pay child support, according to WPLG.
Brown was released on a $15,000 bond. The mother of one of his children told TMZ on Sunday that he owes over $30,000 in child support and that she would like to see him arrested.
The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer faced arrest in August over missing a child support payment. At the time, a Miami-Dade County judge determined that Brown missed a $15,000 child support payment.
Brown last played in the NFL in 2021. He spent nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, one with the New England Patriots, and two in Tampa. His attempt to mount a comeback outside of the NFL in Albany ultimately resulted in the implosion of the Albany Empire.
