Antonio Brown is now feeling the wrath of his bad decision off the field as he is currently doing with his career on the field.
The controversial WR will soon be out of custody on a $100,000 bond on charges that could put him away for a long time.
According to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com, Brown faces a charge of felony burglary with battery which carries a potential sentence of life in prison.
“They overcharged him,” attorney Lorne Berkeley said, according to Wolfe. “Once a thorough investigation is done, we believe the charges filed will most likely be very different than they are right now.”
Brown will be monitored by GPS and be required to release his passport and guns, go through drug and alcohol testing, and get a mental health evaluation.
His other lawyer, Eric Schwartzreich, fired back at the notion that he is suffering from a mental health condition.
“I don’t think there’s any mental health issues with him,” Schwartzreich said. “Antonio Brown’s life right now is a reality show. He is misinterpreted and misunderstood. He’s not guilty of these charges. He did not commit a felony battery. In this case, when all the facts come out, you will see he will be vindicated and he will be found not guilty.”
It was just earlier this week when Brown’s baby mama, Chelsie Kyriss, took to Instagram and stated she and the kids were removing themselves from a bad situation and implored Brown to get the mental health that he desperately needed.
Drew Rosenhaus, who ended their professional relationship, also asked Brown to seek help as well.
“He turned himself in,” Schwartzreich said. “He did the right thing. He surrendered. He’s concerned for the charges and rightfully so. He’s ready for this fight. He’s ready for his vindication. It’s going to take some time, but we are going to put the train on that track.”
Aside from this incident, the NFL has yet to complete the sexual assault and rape allegations levied against him from a former trainer.
