Antonio Brown Facing Three Criminal Charges

Antonio Brown Facing Three Criminal Charges

National Football League wide receiver Antonio Brown was formally charged in the alleged assault of a moving truck driver outside his Florida home back in January, reports say.

The moving company had him go back, though, and that's when Brown allegedly "forced his way into the driver's side of the main cabin and began to physically strike him".

A Broward County court document obtained by ESPN revealed that Brown is charged with felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanour battery, and misdemeanour criminal mischief charges. The driver was attempting to deliver Brown's household items from California, per the criminal complaint.

The misdemeanor battery charge, however, states Brown was "actually and intentionally striking" the driver against his will.

ESPN.com said Brown was charged in January with felony burglary with battery, though that wasn't included in the state filing from March 20 that was cited in the report. After initially locking himself inside his home, Brown turned himself into police and spent the night in jail. The criminal mischief charge says Brown maliciously injured the driver's property of $200 or less.

A seven-time Pro Bowler, Brown has lobbied for teams to sign him since the New England Patriots released him early last season.

Prosecutors will most likely allow Brown to enter a plea deal which would significantly reduce the penalties he could face if proven guilty.

The drama surrounding former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is far from over.
