The NFL is investigating an incident involving Tampa Bay Buccaneers successor Antonio Brown, in which police claimed the WR destroyed a security camera and threw a bicycle into a security guard’s barracks in his closed community in Hollywood, Florida, Tom Pelisero of the NFL reported.
The incident, which occurred on October 15, two weeks before Tampa Bay signed Brown, was first reported by The Miami Herald. No charges have been filed since Brown’s incident, although Hollywood police have determined there is a possible reason to charge him with criminal abuse, according to the Herald.
It is unclear whether the Buccaneers were aware of Brown̵
Bucs issued the following statement Monday after The Herald’s report: “We are aware of the reported incident involving Antonio Brown before it was signed. When Antonio joined us, we knew what we expected and demanded of him. So far, he has met all expectations. that we have. “
Brown recently played eight games. The league did not know about the incident before Brown’s recovery, about Pelisero.
This incident is the latest in a series of off-field problems involving the Buccaneers’ receiver. The suspension of Brown’s eight games stems from two separate incidents: a battery-charged crime of attacking a truck driver, which Brown agreed to; and a case of sexual abuse involving a woman. The league continues to monitor a civil case in Florida in which another woman accused Brown of rape and sexual assault. The hearing in this case is scheduled for January 11, less than two weeks after the end of the 2020 regular season.
Brown is subject to additional discipline from the league if he finds that he has committed further violations of personal conduct policy.
In two games played for the Buccaneers, Brown recorded 78 offensive clicks and caught 10 balls on 13 goals for 100 yards.
