Attorney Eric Rudenberg Secures $20k Bond for Antonio Brown’s Trainer, Glenn Holt

Attorney Eric Rudenberg of Rudenberg & Glasser is representing Glenn Holt, trainer to NFL free agent Antonio Brown. He secured Holt’s release on a $20,000 bond on Wednesday night.

Brown and Holt were both accused of battering a man at Brown’s home in the Oaks Gated Community off Sterling Road on Tuesday, February 11. Hollywood police arrived at the scene around 2pm and encountered a man who claimed he had been battered by Brown and Holt. Holt was taken into custody on one count of burglary with battery. Police said Brown could not be located.

“This is a serious charge but these allegations are way overblown,” said Rudenberg in a statement. “The charge of burglary with a battery carries a punishment of up to life in prison, but this incident, the allegations are extremely minor, it’s something about tussling over keys to a truck. This is not the kind of thing you’d expect people to go to prison for at all, let alone, punishable by life.”

Christian Lata, spokesperson for the Hollywood Police Department, did not mention whether Brown was a suspect but rather that the department was “conducting a thorough investigation” into the matter. The police report alleges that Holt was arrested in connection with possession of keys to a truck after a dispute with movers regarding some items belonging to Brown.

This marks the fourth incident involving Brown that the Hollywood Police Department has responded to in the last three months.

Rudenberg voiced his desire for Brown to receive fair treatment through these proceedings, saying, “Mr. Brown has been through a lot this year in the media and there’s an instinct sometimes to kick people when they’re down. I hope the public and State Attorney’s Office will wait to hear what the evidence is before jumping to any conclusions.”

Holt has since been released from custody, following a negotiated agreement reached by Rudenberg and the prosecution for a $20,000 bond. Holt is also prohibited from having any type of contact with the alleged victim.

Being accused of a violent crime like battery can put one’s entire future in jeopardy. It’s important to remember that you have legal rights. Exercise your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney and put a powerful ally in your corner to secure your release and protect your constitutional rights. That’s what Rudenberg & Glasser is doing for Holt, and that’s what we do for every person we represent.
