Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is being sued for allegedly throwing furniture from a 14th-floor balcony, nearly hitting a toddler, Channel 11 News has independently confirmed.
According to one lawsuit, the 22-month-old boy was walking with his grandfather near a pool at condominiums in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, on April 24 when items began falling from “many floors above them.”
The items included two large vases, an ottoman and other pieces of furniture, the suit said.
Brown is being sued by Ophir Sternberg, the father of the boy, who claims some of the items fell within a mere foot or two of the child and his grandfather.
Security personnel investigated the incident and determined the objects were thrown from the balcony of Brown’s unit at the complex, the suit said. It is alleged in the lawsuit that Brown threw the objects over the balcony in “a fit of rage.”
