Antonio Brown sued by truck driver he beat up


Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown is facing a new civil lawsuit from a violent altercation at his Florida property involving the driver of a moving truck.

Brown had previously pled guilty in a criminal case related to the January 2020 incident -- getting two years' probation for felony burglary and misdemeanor battery and mischief -- after he and his personal trainer roughed up the driver and damaged his truck.

The dispute started amid a disagreement over the quoted price of moving Brown's possessions from California to Hollywood, Florida, according to court records. The four-time All-Pro was suspended the first eight games of the 2020 season over the incident and other violations of the league's personal conduct policy.

In the new suit, filed this week in Broward County, according to the Tampa Bay Times, the driver is seeking more than $30,000 in damages for "severe" injuries suffered in the altercation, as well as financial losses and "mental anguish."

Brown's future in the league was uncertain at the time of the moving truck incident, coming amid unrelated allegations of sexual misconduct and following his high-profile departures from the Pittsburgh Steelers, Las Vegas Raiders, and New England Patriots.

The Buccaneers signed Brown in October, toward the end of his suspension, and he contributed meaningfully down the stretch for the team en route to a Super Bowl title. Last month, the 32-year-old settled the sexual assault lawsuit. He re-signed with the Bucs on a one-year deal days later.
