An October incident in which Buccaneers’ broad successor Antonio Brown allegedly destroyed a surveillance camera and threw a bicycle into a security booth in his closed community in Hollywood will be considered by the NFL.
A police report of the incident shows that police believe Brown could be charged with criminal misconduct, but that the homeowners’ association president has refused to press charges for fear of retaliation. Now the NFL is looking at what happened.
“The league handles any such incident of its kind,” said NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy through Rick Stroud of Tampa Bay Times.
NFL Media’s Tom Pelisero reports that the league did not know about the incident before recovering Brown from his eight-game suspension. He also notes that the league is monitoring the civil lawsuit, accusing Brown of rape, which is due to continue in January.
