Antonio Brown is back in the NFL. Of course, it wouldn’t take long for him to be back in trouble.
The new Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver could potentially face new discipline from the NFL, which is investigating an incident in which police state that Brown destroyed a security camera and threw a bicycle at a security guard stand at his gated Florida community, according to multiple reports.
Brown was not charged during the Oct. 15 incident — though Hollywood police established it had probable cause to charge Brown with misdemeanor criminal mischief, according to The Miami Herald — and it is unclear whether the Bucs had knowledge of the episode upon signing Brown to a one-year contract on Oct. 27.
However, NFL Network reports the league was not aware of the incident involving Brown, who was suspended for the first eight weeks of the season for multiple violations of the league’s personal conduct policy. Brown could face another suspension if he is found to have violated the league policy again.
“We are aware of the reported incident involving Antonio Brown prior to his signing,” the Bucs said in a statement. “When Antonio joined us, we were clear about what we expected and required of him. Thus far, he has met all the expectations we have in place.”
Brown’s recent suspension came after he took a plea deal for a felony battery charge of attacking a truck driver, as well as sexual misconduct allegations. Brown is also involved in a civil case in Florida involving a different woman, in which the wide receiver is accused of rape and sexual assault. The next hearing is set for Jan. 11.
In two games with Tampa Bay, Brown has 10 receptions for 100 yards.
