WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Controversial football player Antonio Brown is currently facing a lawsuit for damages to a condo he was renting last year.
- Surveillance cameras captured footage of the area around the pool while Brown was allegedly tossing furniture out of a high-rise window into the inhabited pool area.
- The player’s former landlords are reportedly seeking around $15,000 in damages, but their lawyer claimed that the actual property damage was more in the range of $80,000.
Football player Antonio Brown has been surrounded with controversy in just the past few months. But before all the drama, sexual assault allegations, release from two NFL teams, and quitting the NFL altogether, the controversial wide receiver faced lawsuits last year for trashing a condo.
Brown allegedly tossed furniture out of a high-rise window into an inhabited pool area, where a young boy was almost hit by falling furniture. The football star had settled that lawsuit.
Now, he’s facing a lawsuit from his former landlord for the same incident. This time, it was because he allegedly destroyed his condo unit in a fit of rage.
The former wide receiver for Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, and New England Patriots was deposed on Tuesday over the lawsuit. WSVN reported that he was accused of causing thousands of dollars in damages to a condo he was renting last year.
The police report stated that Brown’s fit started when he became “very agitated” over $80,000 and a handgun that apparently went missing.
Brown had taken to Twitter to apologize for the incident at The Mansions at Acqualina, but he then deleted the tweet.
After the deposition, Brown can be seen smiling but he dodged reporters’ questions. He also posted a video of the scene on his Instagram story.
The player’s former landlords are reportedly seeking around $15,000 in damages, but their lawyer George Minski claimed that the actual property damage was more likely around $80,000. The damaged property included a shattered mirror, dented wall, and damaged chandelier.
The lawsuit is currently ongoing.
Surveillance cameras captured footage of the area around the pool while Brown was allegedly raging upstairs.
In the video, which emerged on Tuesday, a young boy can be seen wandering near the pool where he was almost hit by the thrown furniture.
