Antonio Brown has turned himself in after authorities issued a warrant for the arrest of the NFL wide receiver following accusations that he and his trainer attacked another man near Brown's Florida home.

TMZ first reported that Brown turned himself in on Thursday, which ESPN has confirmed.

Hollywood police say Brown faces charges of burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief.

Officers say they responded Tuesday afternoon to a disturbance call, where the alleged victim said Brown and his trainer, Glen Holt, hit him. Holt was arrested a short time later and charged with one count of burglary with battery. Police say officers attempted to make contact with Brown but were unsuccessful.
