Antonio Brown allegedly destroyed security camera in temper tantrum


Antonio Brown just can’t get out of trouble.

In his latest incident off the field, the seven-time Pro Bowler and Buccaneers wide receiver in October was accused by his gated Florida community of destroying a security camera and throwing his bike onto the arm of the security fence after being invited to come down to the door. so he can escort a guest inside, the Miami Herald reported on Monday.

This request did not please Brown, who, in the midst of his temper tantrum, yelled at the security guard, “Why are you wasting my time, you have to let my guest through the front door,” according to report. from police.


But Brown, already on probation for a prior arrest, has avoided criminal mischief charges against him by the luxury development where he owns a $ 6.6 million mansion, as the president of the association of Hollywood Oaks owners feared the 32-year-old “might strike back. against its employees, ”she told police.

Sylvia Berman, the president of the HOA, later played down the incident in an interview with the newspaper. She said council believed the incident was too minor to press charges and that Brown, who had previously been fined for undisclosed rule violations within the community, had agreed to replace the broken camera.

Berman then defended what she called Brown’s “emotional” reaction to being called out the gate and called him a “hero” for having seven receptions and 69 yards in Sunday’s 46-23 win over the Caroline.

The case was finally closed by Hollywood Police on November 5, less than two weeks after Brown signed a one-year, $ 750,000 base salary contract with Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers said in a statement they were aware of the incident before signing Brown as he neared the end of an eight-week suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

“When Antonio joined us we were clear on what we expected and expected from him,” said the team. “So far, it has met all the expectations we have in place.”

Brown appears to have left the gated community for the time being, as it was previously reported that he moved in with Tom Brady into the future $ 7.7 million Tampa Bay mansion, which is leased to Derek Jeter.

It is unclear whether this incident would violate the terms of Brown’s two-year probationary plea agreement, which he agreed to after being arrested in January after physically attacking a moving truck driver outside his home. 12 bedroom mansion for an amount of $ 4000.

Brown did not dispute the battery burglary, the burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief as a result of this incident. As part of the plea deal, he had to take a 13-week anger management course and undergo a mandatory psychological assessment.

One of the most gifted receivers in the past decade, Brown’s career has been derailed by run-ins with the law and the teams he played for.


The Steelers traded a disgruntled Brown to the Raiders in 2019 after both sides failed to secure a contract extension, but Brown was released after repeated feuds with Oakland. He then signed with the Patriots, then was released again after a game because he was accused by his former coach and classmate of sexual assault and rape.

Brown has denied the charges, which has led to a civil lawsuit due to be tried in December. Another woman accused Brown of texting her threateningly after Sports Illustrated reported that Brown made unwanted sexual advances to her while she was painting a mural in one of her homes.

Prior to those incidents, in 2018, Brown was sued after throwing furniture from a 14th-floor balcony in a fit of rage, nearly affecting a toddler, according to a lawsuit. He later said the case had been resolved.
