AB apologizes to (Fla.) police

Antonio Brown, after a month that included two brushes with the (Fla.) police, issued an apology to the police department Friday.

The free agent wide receiver posted his comments on Instagram.

On Jan. 13, Brown live-streamed an encounter with the police that included numerous obscenities directed at officers and the mother of his children. That incident prompted the PD to cancel Brown's affiliation with the Police Athletic League and returned a donation he had made to assist with youth football.

Then on Jan. 21, Brown allegedly was involved in a dispute with a moving-truck driver outside his home. Days later, Brown surrendered to the police on charges of burglary with battery (a felony), burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief.

Brown got out on bail on Jan. 24, and he was released from house arrest on Tuesday.

In the wake of all of that drama, Brown wrote Friday evening, "To everyone who I may have offended or Disrespected at the @hollywoodflpd Of the state of Florida, I would like to sincerely give you all my apology from the top and bottom of my heart, And as a human being and an professional athlete I can honestly say that my emotions truly did cloud my better Judgment, When you all were only there to help me.

"Thanks to you all who sincerely accept my Sincere apology. And we must all know that God is a Forgiving God. P.S The 'PAL' Youth League, I'm looking to working with you all again in the near future."

Brown's post came two days after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league is "doing everything to help" the wide receiver.

"We want to help get him on the right track, and get him in a position where he is in a zone where he thinks he can be successful in life. And we are confident that can happen. We want to work to do that, and from our standpoint, that's the first step. The first step is making sure that we're doing everything to help Antonio."
