The police are investigating a possible battery outside of Antonio Brown's home in Hollywood, Fla., according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe

Wolfe reports it is an "active scene" at Brown's home, and authorities said the free-agent wide receiver is a suspect in the incident. Brown has not been arrested and authorities confirmed the situation does not involve a domestic dispute.

Brown's training, Glen Holt, was arrested amid the battery probe on Tuesday, per Wolfe. The alleged victim was the driver of a moving truck outside Brown's home. Brown is currently not in custody of Hollywood PD.

The incident reportedly involves a moving truck, which is sitting outside of Brown's home, and its workers. A 911 call was placed to alert police of a possible battery, and the police arrived to the scene to investigate, according to Wolfe.

Tuesday's incident comes days after Hollywood police said they were cutting ties with the NFL player, according to CBS Miami. Police were called to a domestic disturbance at Brown's home on Jan. 13, and he went on a profanity-laced tirade against authorities and the mother of his children. The authorities said it was the third domestic incident involving Brown that had occurred in Hollywood in three months.

Brown had recently been donating his time and money to the Police Athletic League youth football team in Hollywood. However, the police department said it informed Brown that he can no longer volunteer with the league and it returned his donations.

Brown missed most of the 2019 regular season after a tumultuous summer and fall, which resulted in the Patriots' releasing him on Sept. 20. Ten days before his release, Brown's former trainer Britney Taylor said he raped her.

Taylor met with NFL investigators for 10 hours on Sept. 16, the same day Sports Illustrated released a story including a second account of sexual misconduct involving Brown. Other behavioral issues were also brought to light, including unpaid debts and multiple domestic incidents.

The NFL is investigating the accounts of sexual misconduct brought against Brown. He has denied all of them.
