Antonio Brown Arrested Over Unpaid Child Support Debts


Antonio Brown, the former NFL wide receiver, has once again found himself in legal trouble. Over the weekend, the 35-year-old athlete was arrested in Dania Beach, Florida, for failing to fulfill his child support obligations. Authorities apprehended Brown outside his residence, booking him into Broward County jail at approximately midnight on Sunday, October 15. Shortly after, he was released on a $15,000 bond. The charges stem from a reported $31,000 in unpaid child support owed to Wiltrice Jackson, the mother of Brown’s 15-year-old daughter, Antanyiah.

Wiltrice Jackson has spoken with TMZ about her determination to hold her ex-partner accountable for his alleged negligence as a father. She expressed her frustration by saying, “Because, right now, he’s making a mockery out of the judge, out of everything, because he feels like he’s untouchable.” Jackson shared her desire for Brown to be actively involved in their daughter’s life, especially given Antanyiah’s accomplishments as a track-and-field athlete.

In a previous incident in August, Brown exhibited a dismissive attitude towards the arrest warrant by posting a video online receiving a full-body massage, seemingly indicating that the legal proceedings didn’t faze him. However, it’s not just unpaid child support that plagues Brown; he also faces other financial obligations. In September, he was found “liable on all counts” for selling a counterfeit Richard Mille watch to an individual for $160,000.

Antonio Brown’s legal troubles have been a recurring theme both on and off the field. In 2022, an arrest warrant was issued in Florida over domestic battery allegations, but the charges were later dropped. The incident that led to his release from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in January 2022, where he removed his jersey and left the field during a game against the New York Jets, further contributed to his tumultuous reputation.

His suspension from three games while playing for the Buccaneers due to falsifying his Covid-19 vaccination status in 2021 added to his list of off-field issues. In 2020, while a free agent, Brown received an eight-game suspension from the NFL for multiple violations of the league’s personal conduct policy. This stemmed from a confrontation with a moving truck driver that resulted in charges of burglary with assault, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, and criminal mischief. He pleaded no contest and served two years of probation.

In 2019, Brown faced allegations of sexual assault from his former trainer in a lawsuit. He denied the accusations and later reached a settlement in the case.
