Antonio Brown Involved In Dispute

Steelers star Antonio Brown was allegedly involved in a domestic dispute in January, according to TMZ. However, he was not arrested in connection with the incident. 

Last month in Florida, a woman made allegations of misconduct against Brown and phoned local police. Details are murky, but a person with the Hollywood Police Dept. confirmed to TMZ that “no arrests were made.”

This isn’t the first time Brown has been accused of poor off-the-field misconduct. Last year, Brown was sued by a man claiming that the wide receiver nearly killed his child by throwing furniture off of the balcony of his Florida home. Brown, meanwhile, said the man is lying and proclaimed his innocence.

Brown has pushed for a trade in recent weeks, but this latest news may hurt his value. Over the last few days, Brown reiterated his desire for a trade and has been ignoring calls from owner Art Rooney II.

Brown had another productive year in 2018, though he was overshadowed at times by rising star JuJu Smith-Schuster. The three years and $39MM left on his current deal may be a barrier to a trade and the cap hit the Steelers would have to absorb may be an even bigger barrier. Every team in the league would love to have Brown, but any deal would require a serious forfeiture of draft picks and a pricey commitment.

Now, the latest allegations against Brown could muddy the waters even further. Ultimately, the accusation could force to Brown to move forward with Pittsburgh, though fences will have to be mended between him and the organization.

    Can’t be true, he plays for the NFL, they employ only upstanding law abiding citizens.

    I guarantee the Steelers are hoping at this point for Goodell to step in and issue a 16-game suspension under the “personal conduct policy”, in order to get rid of that $21 million cap hit.

      I just read where you said “as a Bengals fan” in another post. The funny coming from someone who’s team was a TV version of LOCKED UP Stateside just a few years ago.

      • slpdajab55

        Do your homework son .. the Bengals have never been the worst in the league for arrests. They have been in the bottom half .. but check out the Vikings and Broncos arrest history. Just sayin …sincerely, Troll smasher smasher

          • troll_smasher

            Exactly MACK! At least they did fall to #8 from 2010-2016 according to Business Insider

        • troll_smasher

          Homework was done B4 I posted the comment. I Never said they “LED the league in arrest”. BUT I guess that something to be proud of, I guess.

          This article Posted in 2017

          2000-2017 #3.
          Cincinnati Bengals
          Number of arrests: 44
          The Bengals currently employ Adam Jones, who has the most arrests of any NFL player since 2000 (10) and was even arrested earlier this year for poking a security guard in the eye. They also employed the player with the third most arrests since 2000, Chris Henry (6), who passed away in 2009. Overall, the Bengals have had nine assaults, nine DUIs and six domestic violence cases over the past 17 years.

          Again… no room to talk about ANY other team except Broncos/Vikings.

              Nothing says “internet tough guy” any more than a “Troll Smasher” screen name

    TO and Chad Johnson were 2 of the best Divas and I don’t remember them being this stupid

    • madmanTX

      And….just silence from him. Shocker. AB being a bad guy doesn’t fit his false narrative of Brown being a victim.

      • deal1122

        Right? Acts all hard and then disappears when things don’t go his boy’s way…

        • deal1122

          I’m a die hard, Steelers season ticket holder, and don’t get my wrong, I love AB’s production on the field, but I’m sick of the drama off the field and him acting like he’s the victim.

          • troll_smasher

            You sure are posting a lot over “MURKY” details. That’s interesting.

            Details are murky, but a person with the Hollywood Police Dept. confirmed to TMZ that “no arrests were made.”

            • deal1122

              It’s not just this though. There’s been multiple instances reported and don’t forget about him being pulled over driving over 100 MPH. I love my Steelers but AB is a d-bag. I might be bashing AB, but that’s why we’re here to discuss our opinions… correct?

              • troll_smasher

                You have inside info that you’re holding back about this incident? We definitely can’t forget that HEINOUS crime of driving 100. Should be put under the jail for that. I’ll be back when actual evidence comes out on this.

                  • troll_smasher

                    Says the guy playing judge/Jury/executioner over “MURKY” details on a story with a Bunch of Nothing! I’ll be a d-bag that doesn’t rush to judgment w/out evidence, no matter WHO the player is. I guess I can see why Steelers fans have been voted as one of the WORST fan bases in the NFL as of late by a couple of outlets.

                    • deal1122

                      Guess I’m not really sure how you get all that just by me calling AB a d-bag…? You really are a troll bro. Keep hiding behind that computer screen

                      • troll_smasher

                        “Look I’ve found another d-bag on this site”. Are you that ignorant that you don’t know what you write? You call me a d-bag, then accuse me of hiding behind a screen. Becoming easy to see why people troll you.

                        • deal1122

                          Funny since the only two people who troll me on here are you and tsolid. I called you a dbag because you are one. You had nothing better to do than come at me on a trade rumors site, hence why I said you act hard behind a screen. I called AB a dbag because I’m open to my own opinion, and I guarantee you that I’m not the only one who feels that way, especially being a Steelers fan.

                          • troll_smasher

                            So, having an opinion different from you in the comment section, is “coming at you?” You’re an insecure little boy with with a victim complex. You’re in the wrong place if you expect people to agree with you. LITTLE BOY

    Where are the charges??? Such a deva! I am still wondering what happened to his 100mph & recklass driving charges after driving 100mph in a residential zone!!

  5. crosseyedlemon

    It appears Brown has greater accuracy throwing furniture from balconies than Big Ben does throwing a football. Maybe Rooney should rethink who he wants to keep.

  6. Polish Hammer

    It’s all just rumors and I bet there’s even some teammates that will claim there was no dispute…

  7. Julio Franco's Birth Certificate

    This idiot has brain damage from that Vontaze Burfict in the playoffs three years ago. Time to move on, unless he shows he wants some help.

  8. forwhomjoshbelltolls

    Dude clearly has CTE.

    But, if he claims that he beat this woman because she was preventing him from baptizing his kid, the Rooneys will likely defend him.

    It worked for the other guy.
