Just over 24 hours after a warrant was issued for his arrest, Antonio Brown is now in police custody.

The warrant was issued Wednesday night following an altercation with a mover at Brown’s Florida home. The former NFL All-Pro receiver is facing felony charges of burglary with battery, and burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, as well as criminal mischief. Police had waited to act on the warrant and trying communicating with Brown, who locked himself in his home and refused to talk with officers.

According to ESPN, Brown showed up to Broward County Jail Thursday night wearing a turquoise suit, accompanied by his lawyers as well as friends. He will be held there overnight and is expected to face a Florida judge for a bond hearing Friday morning.
