Antonio Brown Facing Three Criminal Charges

Welcome back to the news, Antonio Brown. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports that the embattled wideout is facing three formal charges stemming from an alleged January assault.

Specifically, Brown is facing “felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief charges.”

To review: a delivery driver alleged that Brown and his trainer assaulted him outside of the receiver’s Florida home. As Fowler notes, the battery charge “states that Brown was “actually and intentionally striking” the driver against his will,” while the mischief charge states that Brown “injured” the driver’s property of $200 or less. Brown had turned himself in to Florida authorities in late January and was later released on bond.

Realistic, the current coronavirus pandemic could delay court proceedings, providing extra time for Brown’s team to compile “depositions and provide its own witnesses.” Alternatively, the state may present Brown with a chance to negotiate a plea deal. The case will also be reviewed by the NFL.

It’s been a relatively quiet offseason for Brown, who’s looking to make his return to the field. There were rumblings that Tom Brady wanted to reunite with the wideout in Tampa Bay, but Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has indicated that that isn’t realistic.

    Antonio was working out with Lamar Jackson and his cousin Marquise Hollywood Brown the other day. And the ravens could use another WR

    • yoyo137

      And Jerry Jeudy was there too. AB deservedly has a bad reputation but the Ravens locker room is strong and he’d have motivation with his cousin playing next to him and playing with the MVP. I would love for the Ravens to sign AB, he’d probably be suspended for the first 2-4 games but it’d lessen our need for a WR so we can focus on LB and IOL in the draft.

        • yoyo137

          Ok so you don’t want him on your team. I do. He’s still a top 5 WR when playing.

              Talent doesn’t trump everything.

              There are some guys deserving of second chances, or even third chances- such as drug offenders.

              Alleged violent offenses shouldn’t be forgiven as easily though simply because a player has talent.

              • tigerd7335

                Well hold on App Outlaw Talent does trump everything except murder in the nfl it shouldn’t be that way but it is plain and simple it’s not right but it’s the way it is

                • compassrose

                  Um talent does top murder also. Ray Rice and the Blade bros say hi. Vick could be added by some but even as a dog lover I don’t put them on the same level as humans but some do.

                  • Appalachian_Outlaw

                    I’m thinking you meant Lewis, not Rice.

                    It really shouldn’t trump character though. I don’t care if a guy can catch a football, or throw a pass; I want the guy to be someone I can root for. I’d rather my team suck than cheer for some of these guys.

                    I’m also a firm believer Vick never should’ve played again. He did his time, and has a right to live his life free now. However, playing in the NFL is a privilege, not a right. Some of these guys get the two confused.

                    I mean how does a team not ask themselves how fans are supposed to pull for some of these guys?

          • jkoms57

            ABs ignorance is like a brick wall. No getting thru to him. Low iQ high confidence.

            Lamar cant throw anyways. RG3 2.0 hope you enjoyed your 1 year.

        • It’s really not right to comment on somebody’s medical situation, nobody knows that he’s mentally ill so who’s to say that he is.

          • martevious

            He’s either mentally ill, or an idiot. I’m voting for mentally ill, because there is help for that.

      • letmeclearmythroat74

        No way – it’s a burglary charge … he likely gets some time if found guilty. Maybe play on the longest yard. This guy is a bafoon …. Burfict new it and tried to take him out

        • louwhitakerisahofer

          Burfict tried to take him out to win a playoff game, not because he is a “bafoon.”

      • Katsuro

        I doubt the suspension, which you can bet he will get if he ever is signed to a team, will be a mere 4 games. Lesser “offenses” have netted higher totals.

    • Ed "The Mythical One"

      The Ravens almost lost me as a fan completely with their stunt in London where they knelt for the American anthem and then stood for England’s and then they got blown out like 43-0, I begrudgingly came back to them a couple of years later but I won’t support them by going to any game or buying any merch. If they bring this absolute idiot in who has beaten people, sexually assaulted people, robbed people, and spews out racial slurs every other word out of his mouth I will swear off the Ravens forever and so should every other Ravens fan.

      AB is what is wrong with football. Guys given chances to play and make millions that should be in jail but get a pass because they are very good at a sport. We’ve seen enough of this. No more. Stop glorifying and lauding these jerks.

      • jkoms57

        Ya exactly hes not like a nice guy that made some mistakes.

        Hes completely arrogant, out of control, and selfish.

        You want that on your team, take him.
        PS he’ll be suspended indefinitely once hes signed.

      • crosseyedlemon

        So “The Mythical One” is going to teach the Ravens a lesson by becoming an Orioles fan? Might as well just walk in front of a bus…lol.

      • “The Ravens almost lost me as a fan completely with their stunt in London where they knelt for the American anthem and then stood for England’s”

        Awww, looks like baby soiled his diaper. Cry more, baby.

        • Ed "The Mythical One"

          No crying here. Think about what they just did for a moment. An American team knelt for the American National Anthem and stood for the England’s Anthem. Not much of a history buff I suppose. Then to top it off they stunk up the joint. Also, there were a lot of white guys on the Ravens team at that time, not that skin color matters at all.

      • Walkerama

        They almost lost you as a fan but you dont go to games or buy merch, so basically they lost you’re support as a fan. And all because the scary brown men had a nonviolent protest to police brutality. As understanding as you seem, I am shocked you dont support AB getting a second chance.

        • Ed "The Mythical One"

          I still watch the team and follow them. They get a lot more money from their TV deals than from me buying tickets, or don’t you know where the NFL and all major sports leagues get the majority of their revenue? Also that lovely stadium they play in for free was paid for by my tax dollars.

  2. phillyballers

    So why not just plead guilty, get your 30 days in jail 100 hours of community service and go back to playing football. The longer he has legal issues the less likely any team brings him in.

    Dude that used to be all ab that PR has No clue how to get any good PR. Is he still fighting over his money from teams? Come in with the position that all or a large % of it should be donated to supplying medical facilities with supplies instead of his wallet. Better PR. Doesn’t change the fact he doesnt deserve any of the money tho lol.

    • jkoms57

      Well I mean he did bank over 100 million dollars so I don’t think he wasted it per say.

      Will he waste it on poor choices? Yes.
      But you could give him 200mil and get the same result.

  3. Kwflanne

    I like seeing all of this, then going back and watching his sweet YouTube video he produced when the raiders released him: “I’m free!!”

    What….. an….. idiot

  4. rocky7

    Yes, sure the Central Michigan U is so very proud of the 3 year “education” this idiot got…he’s on the Colin Kap road to nowhere and obscurity and certainly deserves each and every mile of it.

  5. Max Jackson

    If the Raiders can’t handle Brown, nobody can.

    The Raiders are where all the scrappy “bad boys”, hard-earners and last resorts have gone over the years and Brown couldn’t even get to 1st down.

    “I’M FREEE!!!”

    After that whole incident I gave him 2 years left in the NFL. I should’ve sold that stock short, way short.

  6. crosseyedlemon

    A whacko like Antonio Brown would probably have a great future in politics.

    • HubcapDiamondStarHalo

      OMG, PLEASE don’t give him ideas he doesn’t need to have!!!

      And just because it can be difficult to convey in print, I got a good laugh at your comment, which I think/hope was the point!

  7. Walkerama

  8. FactsOnly

    First of all he deserves to be back in the league! Second he needs help! Third that apology tour he did didn’t help! When you mess up that bad you go away for a while chill and then comeback and apologize! All that drama with his baby mama that’s still on people minds! He should of laid low keep working out and let people say I haven’t heard from Antonio in a while but no he’s still throwing shoots at JuJu and whoever else still calling that girl he allegedly sexually assaulted and now this! Good Luck Antonio

    His talent cannot overcome his stupidity. Which is really saying something since he is very talented.
