REPORT: Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown Facing Yet Another Lawsuit
Back in April, Antonio Brown finally put a civil dispute behind him when he and his former trainer, Britney Taylor, agreed to a settlement in a civil lawsuit accusing Brown of sexual assault.
That door close, but now another one has opened.
Truck driver Anton Tumanov filed a civil lawsuit against the Tampa bay WR in relation to a January 2020 assault. According to Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times, Tumanov said Brown assaulted him while he was delivering household items.
Tumanov claims that he was “met with resistance and violence” from Brown and his trainer Glenn Holt. Brown pleaded no-contest to charges stemming from the assault of burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief in June 2020.
Brown is said to have paid the $4,000 for the items that were delivered, but refused to pay $860 for damaging the guy’s truck.
In the civil lawsuit, it is stated that Tumanov “continues to suffer severe bodily injuries, pecuniary losses, and mental anguish.”
The 32-year-old veteran hit free agency at the end of the 2020 season, but has since signed a one-year, $3.075 million contract to return to the reigning world champion Buccaneers.
