The Daily Caller reported last week that an arrest warrant was issued for former NFL star Antonio Brown.
According to the website, Brown is accused of failing to keep up on his child support obligations. The Miami-Dade County judge who authorized Brown's arrest warrant has made his release contingent on paying $30,000.

Wiltrice Jackson is the mother of Brown's daughter, and Sports Illustrated noted that Jackson leveled allegations of domestic violence against him last year. While a warrant was issued for Brown's arrest, Jackson ultimately decided against filing charges.
Brown has also had on-field problems as well, such as earlier this month when he had an altercation with security personnel at a National Arena League game between the Albany Empire and the Orlando Predators.
Sports Illustrated explained that Brown was being recorded by a videographer as he walked along the back of the endzone and shook hands with fans.
At one point Brown was told to leave, prompting the videographer to say that Brown "owns the team," a reference to his ownership state in the National Arena League. This event eventually led to a standoff, footage of which Brown later posted to his Twitter account.
"Still I maintained a level of professionalism positivity while dealing with this security today ! First Game AS AN Owner," he declared.

Brown's role within the National Arena League is apparently a controversial matter, as Des Moines' KCCI reported on April 16 that he declared the organization to be his property.
"I'm the owner, 100 percent owner. I don't take that lightly," the former Pittsburgh Steeler was quoted as saying in a telephone interview.
"My job as the owner (is) to provide the players and community, the front office, everyone that experience, the experience of Albany, and I'm excited about that role," he added.
However, that claim is disputed by league co-owners Mike Kwarta along with minority partners Charlotte and Steve von Schiller.
Still Brown remained adamant that the bought Kwarta out, saying, "I just think Mike couldn't afford the things in regards of (moving) the business forward."
