Top YouTuber Logan Paul and NFL star Antonio Brown seemed set for an impromptu boxing match — but Brown’s recent arrest warrant could put a stop to their celebrity showdown.

In reports provided by ESPN, Florida police issued a warrant for Brown’s arrest on Wednesday, January 22, after allegations surfaced that claimed both he and his trainer had attacked a truck owned by a moving company.

According to Hollywood law enforcement’s Christian Latta, Brown now faces burglary and battery charges, with documents from TMZ reporting that the wide receiver threw a rock at the vehicle and even became physically aggressive with the driver over a payment discussion.

The NFL’s Antonio Brown faces an arrest warrant after a reported scuffle with a delivery driver, which could put a damper on his boxing match with Logan Paul.

While all eyes are likely trained on the development of the case, this could throw a massive monkey wrench in his purportedly upcoming boxing match against YouTube star Logan Paul, after he challenged the internet celeb via Twitter.

During an interview with TMZ Sports, Paul even claimed that their match was “closer than anyone expects.”

ImPaulsive podcast host Mike Majlak echoed that sentiment by revealing their teams were “already talking” about scheduling the fight.

However, it seems that this bout may be put on hold for the foreseeable future, with a newly-released 911 call placed during Brown’s altercation with the driver alleging he was under the influence of marijuana at the time of the scuffle.

“The guy is high, he smoked, he threatened me,” the driver said in call records provided by TMZ.

“He’s trying to fight, he throws stones at my truck… I’m trying to make delivery to the gentleman. I called him and told him he has to pay the balance. The guy refused to pay.”

Although Paul claimed his fight with Brown was “closer than anyone expects,” their bout may be put on hold for the foreseeable future.

Brown’s boxing trainer, Glenn Holt, was also arrested on felony burglary, and was later released after posting bail for $20,000.

This development follows Jake Paul’s own plans to box rapper Soulja Boy, who was similarly met with legal trouble amidst purportedly organizing a fight with the YouTuber.

Thus far, Logan “The Maverick” Paul has yet to respond to Brown’s arrest warrant, with news of their proposed boxing match still up in the air for now.

YouTube star David Dobrik is one of the internet’s most famous content creators — but living in the limelight isn’t always a cake walk, as he discovered after one of his viewers began stalking his home.

Boasting well over 18 million subscribers on YouTube, it comes as little surprise that Dobrik receives the occasional unwanted visitor at his house, which has happened several times before.

However, this latest incident took a dark turn, as revealed during an episode of Dobrik and Jason Nash’s ‘VIEWS’ podcast in early October where the star revealed one viewer took things a little too far.

During the episode, Dobrik explained that the fan — a young woman in her “early twenties” — had sat outside of his home on the street curb for two days before banging on the door, yelling his name.

In an episode of his VIEWS podcast with Jason Nash, David Dobrik revealed a disturbing encounter with a woman who was stalking him.

After Dobrik went outside to investigate, he reported that the viewer suffered from appeared to be a “panic attack” and quickly shouted “Nevermind, you can’t help me,” before “storming” out of his driveway.

Understandably concerned, Dobrik and company followed the woman, to no avail — but a day later, a neighbor texted the YouTuber that someone had keyed his assistant, Natalie’s, Ford Bronco.

The vehicle (pictured below) was etched with symbols, according to Dobrik, which included his name written in odd lettering.

Upon investigating the car, David found that the woman was nearby, claiming she wanted to “apologize” — but quickly became what he described as “scary,” prompting him to call law enforcement for help in case things got sticky.

Luckily, the star was adamant that he didn’t want to “get her in trouble” but instead wanted her to “get help,” to which she agreed.

While waiting on the police to arrive, Dobrik asked the woman why she’d stalked him, to which she replied: “He told me to just go for it.”

As for who “he” was? Dobrik claimed she said it was “the guy inside my head,” who told her that “if I came here, everything would be answered.”

Thankfully, the police were “super f**king nice” when they arrived and took the woman to a hospital, prompting a hilarious chat with an officer who advised Dobrik to change his name on social media — something he replied he was a “little late” for.

While this is far from the first time an internet celebrity has been outright stalked, it’s good to know that this situation ended peacefully, with Dobrik understanding that his stalker didn’t have bad intentions, but merely needed help.
