Antonio Brown nearly injured child in furniture-tossing tantrum, lawsuit says

Pittsburgh Steelers Star WR Antonio Brown is in the news for the wrong reason this morning. He is currently in a lawsuit regarding a pretty scary situation.

Brown is being accused of throwing multiple pieces of furniture including two large vases and an ottoman off his Florida apartment’s balcony, nearly hitting a 22-month-old child and his grandfather according to court documents.



The lawsuit claims on April 14th, 2018 at 10:30 am and surveillance footage shows objects falling from the balcony and landing near the child and man, KDKA-TV reported. One of the vases shattered when it hit the ground about 2 feet from the child, TMZreported, citing the lawsuit.

Security and police were called to the scene and, when officers arrived, Brown allegedly was “extremely agitated, acting aggressively, and yelling at security personnel,” according to the lawsuit.



Ophir Sternberg filed the lawsuit against Brown and is suing for assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress, TMZ reported. Sternberg claimed the wide receiver acted “without regard for human life.”
