Steelers WR Brown to fight civil lawsuits
October 11, 2018
By The Associated Press
PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is planning to fight a pair of lawsuits filed against him stemming from an incident at a Florida apartment complex last spring.
Ophir Sternberg is seeking damages against Brown, claiming that objects thrown by Brown from the 14th floor of an apartment building came close to striking Sternberg's father and Sternberg's 22-month-old son in April. The lawsuit claims Sternberg's son was ''extremely traumatized'' by the event.
A second lawsuit filed by the owner of the apartment building is seeking more than $15,000 in damages from Brown.
Brown told police that the incidents occurred after a gun and $80,000 were stolen from the apartment. Brown said in a statement on Thursday the lawsuits contained ''false claims'' against him.
''The facts will soon come out that prove my innocence,'' Brown said. ''My focus will remain on football and I will not let the cases serve as a distraction.''
