Antonio Brown Arrested For Allegedly Not Paying Nearly $31K In Child Support
On Oct. 15, former National Football League (NFL) player Antonio Brown was arrested in Dania Beach, Florida, for allegedly failing to pay child support.
According to CBS News, the 35-year-old father of six by three different women was booked in Broward County. Brown was booked on an out-of-county arrest warrant. He was released on a $15,000 bond.
Wiltrice Jackson, the former athlete’s ex-girlfriend, Jackson claims she has consistently tried to get Brown to support Antanyiah, and that Brown’s debt totals nearly $31,000 in child support owed for their daughter, Antanyiah. The mother of the 15-year-old track star, who already has interest from more than 80 colleges, said she wanted Brown arrested.
“Right now, he’s making a mockery out of the judge, out of everything, because he feels like he’s untouchable,” she said.
This latest incident was not the first time the exasperated mom turned to the courts. BLACK ENTERPRISE previously reported that an arrest warrant was issued for Brown in August 2023. At the time, a Miami-Dade County judge ruled that the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver missed a child support payment of $15,000. CBS News also reported the same issue came about earlier this year, in April.
Brown is not currently signed to an NFL team. Last month, BE reported that Brown was accused of pulling a gun on members of his Albany Empire (formerly of the National Arena League) team. Former players in the now-defunct team also claimed the athlete didn’t pay them.
