Antonio Brown Wears Anti-Suicide Smock in Court, Must Undergo Mental Health Evaluation

Antonio Brown may finally be getting the treatment and help that he so desperately needs, but it is because of a court order. After surrendering to police in Hollywood, Florida on charges of battery and burglary in relation to an incident with a moving truck driver, Brown was spotted wearing an anti-suicide smock.

The free-agent wide receiver then had his bail set at $100,000 for the burglary with battery charge, while also being ordered to wear a GPS monitor, surrender his passport, and undergo a mental health evaluation.

The incident happened just days after Brown’s ex-girlfriend pleaded for him to get mental health treatment.

“Over the last few years I have stood at the side of my children’s father Antonio Brown and watched the rise and fall of an incredible man and athlete. Our children and I have distanced ourselves from him and our former home,” ex-girlfriend Chelsie Kyriss wrote on Instagram.

“Although we have parted ways I wish nothing but the best for him. Unfortunately, it seems Antonio has made questionable choices and continues to ignore the advice of those who love and support him. At this point the boys and I are working on building a new life free from any impulsive, reckless and unhealthy behaviors. My hope is that Anotonio will get help and seek the mental health treatment that he so desperately needs so that he can be the father all of his children need and deserve.”

Brown forced his way out of Oakland after a preseason filled with absurd drama stemming from the wide receiver’s frost-bitten feet to threatening to retire over an issue with his league-approved helmet. The Raiders acquired Brown in the offseason via a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers but they ultimately decided the headaches weren’t worth it.

Brown then was a member of the New England Patriots before his second release in weeks after multiple sexual assault allegations and reportedly sending threatening messages to one of his accusers. However, with the sexual assault allegations against him and Brown’s continued antics, the Patriots decided to move on.

Throughout his career in the NFL, Brown has hauled in 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns. Last season, Brown recorded 104 catches for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. In each of the last 6 seasons, Brown has recorded at least 100 catches and 1,000 yards.
