The late Sergio’s mother Myrtle Brown

Where was Sergio Brown arrested? Sergio was arrested in San Diego while re-entering the US from Mexico. He was arrested in connection with the death of his mother, Myrtle Brown, 73, and booked into San Diego County Jail without bail.

Mexican law enforcement deported him after authorities in Illinois obtained an arrest warrant pertaining to his mother’s death. Sergio caused disturbance on an extradition flight transporting him from Mexico City to Tijuana, prompting the pilot to threaten to remove him from the plane.

Authorities had been searching for him after his mother, Myrtle was found dead on 16 September 2023 near her home about 12 miles (19 kilometres) west of Chicago.

A medical examination conducted by the Cook County Medical Examiner found out that she suffered multiple assault injuries, and her death was ruled a homicide. Later, her family later issued a statement through attorney Christian Conway calling on authorities to speed up the investigation.

While on the run, his brother Nick took to Instagram to express his love for his brother and to ask anyone who knew his whereabouts to share information with the police.

I want him to know that I love you and please come home.

Sergio Brown’s brother Nick Brown also grabbed that opportunity to share a tribute to his mother on social media, describing her as strong and caring.

Mom, thank you for being strong, caring, diligent, fancy, funny, and for saving my art. I won’t let you down.

Three days after his mother’s death, an unverified Instagram account showed an incoherent video of Sergio calling reports of his mother’s death fake news. He dismissed reports labeling him missing as fake news claiming the FBI and Maywood Police Department played a role in his mother’s death.

Fake news, fake news. It has to be the FBI that came into my house on Bob Marley’s death day.

It is unclear where the video was taken from. The former NFL player has been charged with first-degree murder, which carries a maximum life sentence in prison without the possibility of parole. Brown is in the custody of the San Diego Sheriff’s office waiting for his court hearing scheduled on 13 November 2023.
