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 Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
