UPDATED 1/22, 6:0 p.m. ET: According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Antonio Brown threw a rock at the moving truck driver involved in the incident. Brown allegedly refused to pay the driver the $4000 he was owed for delivering Brown his personal belongings from California.
When the driver attempted to drive away with Brown's belongings, that's when Brown allegedly threw the rock, causing a dent in his truck. After Brown reportedly agreed to pay the $4000 plus an additional $860, the driver agreed to return to his home. But when Brown refused to pay the extra amount, they argued, and Brown began striking the driver. That's when Brown's trainer, Glenn Holt, grabbed the keys so that Brown could get his stuff. The driver and Holt are said to have fought for the keys, causing injury to the driver, and leading to Holt's arrest.
The driver says he has "redness on his face to scratches on his neck, shoulder, stomach and forearm," per TMZ. Brown is not yet in custody, but sources tell the outlet that police are currently working on that.
Brown's former partner, Chelsie Kyriss, took to Instagram Wednesday, where she admonished the father of her children for his recent behavior and urged him to seek help.

Multiple police officers descended on Brown's Florida home on Tuesday and are reportedly "working on an arrest warrant." Currently, the former NFL superstar is not in custody but his home is being treated as an "active scene." Police sources tell TMZ that the battery and burglary accusations stem from an altercation with a moving company driver.
Per TMZ, police are "trying to convince" Brown to "surrender peacefully." Police have reportedly already arrested a man that was with Brown at the time of the alleged altercation.
Authorities have visited Brown's home on multiple occasions recently, in response to verbal altercations with the mother of his children. Additionally, the incident comes nearly a week after his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, decided to part ways with Brown due to his mental instability. The NFLPA received a letter from Rosenhaus on Thursday explaining that he's decided to conditionally terminate his relationship with Brown until the athlete seeks counseling.
