Antonio Brown has more than his sexual assault and rape civil suit to worry about.
The troubled yet mega-talented NFL receiver is now facing formal charges of felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief charges, according to a Broward County court document obtained Friday by ESPN stemming from a January assault.
A delivery truck driver alleged that Brown and his trainer attacked him, leading to the 31-year-old Brown turning himself in on Jan. 23. A criminal complaint stated the man was trying to deliver items from Brown’s home in California. A charge of felony burglary with battery wasn’t included in the filing, though the misdemeanor battery charge alleged that Brown was “actually and intentionally striking” the driver.
The NFL already has an investigation open into Brown after his one-time trainer Britney Taylor accused him of sexual assault and likely will look into these charges as well. A suspension could be forthcoming, which won’t help his chance of returning to the league.
Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro, appeared in just one game last year for the Patriots before he was cut following allegations of sexual assault. Before that, following a trade from the Steelers to the Raiders, he was let go by Oakland because of a number of disciplinary issues. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, also let him go.
