As many of you know Antonio has been running to social media to broadcast the recent run-ins with the local police in his community every time he and his baby mama Chelsie Kyriss go at it. Now it looks like the police department has had enough, and their athletic league has decided to cut ties with him.
According to ESPN, the Hollywood (Florida) Police Department released a statement and announced that their athletic league has cut ties with Antonio, and has returned his donation following his recent interaction with police. On Monday, he hopped on Instagram Live to cuss out the police and his baby mama while their children were present.
In a statement released after the incident, the department mentioned that police intervention has caused an “irreparable rift” between the department, the Police Athletic League and Antonio.
Officer Christian Lata said, “We made the decision to sever ties between Mr. Brown and the Hollywood Police Athletic League. We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown.” Officer Lata also talked about the incident on Monday and said that he used “very degrading language in front of his young children.”
Antonio had recently donated to the athletic league’s 7-on-7 football league, but they decided to return his donation earlier this month.
“We will not take money from a donor that we cannot have our youth be proud of or represent our organization,” said Lata.
The department also gave Antonio a trespass warning for the Police Athletic League property because they “did not want him to continue to affect our youth nor influence them in a negative way.”
