The women on the footage claimed they were hired by someone who claimed to be Brown's representative, but they denied taking the money or the gun and mentioned how other people were in the apartment days before Brown left.

Police in Sunny Isles Beach returned to Brown's apartment a day later on April 24 after getting reports of the Miami native throwing large objects - including two vases and an ottoman - off his balcony, almost hitting and killing a toddler and his grandfather, who were nearby, according to a civil lawsuit filed by Ophir Sternberg.

Security and police were called to the scene and determined the items came from Brown's place - and the whole thing was captured on surveillance video.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is facing two lawsuits in Florida for allegedly throwing items off a balcony and damaging an apartment.

The legal filing by Ophir Sternberg alleges the Pittsburgh Steelers star almost hit his 22-month-old son with "large objects" tossed "from the building many floors above them".

A lawsuit filed by the victim contends two very large vases, an ottoman and other pieces of furniture landed just feet away from the child and his grandfather.

According to one complaint, Brown damaged a $35,000, fully furnished unit that he began renting in February and refused to pay for the damages. "Brown was extremely agitated, acting aggressively, and yelling at security personnel when arrived to the scene". He was not arrested, but the complex informed Brown that he was going to be evicted.

Sternberg also claims that Brown damaged his own apartment 'in a fit of rage'.

But, when cops showed up to his apartment, Brown said, "I found the car" and closed the door in their faces.
