The charges are related to an incident that occurred on Tuesday at Brown’s Florida home that began when a moving truck driver arrived to drop off a load of items that he had been hired to deliver from Brown’s California residence.
The truck driver said that when he asked for the $4,000 payment, Brown refused.
The truck driver said that he then attempted to leave the scene with Brown’s property still in his truck — and that Brown responded by a throwing a rock, damaging his truck.
TMZ reports that as the argument escalated, Brown climbed up on the truck, forced his way into the cab, and began to strike the truck driver.
The truck driver said that Brown’s trainer Glenn Holt took the keys from the ignition and unloaded Brown’s belongings from the trailer.

The truck driver says that he suffered cuts and scratches from the assault.
Holt has since been arrested but police have not yet taken Brown into custody.
Brown has not played in the NFL since he was released by the New England Patriots during Week 2 of the 2019 season after he was accused of rape.
