Brandon Browner went from being a key piece in the win in Super Bowl XLIX, a respected player in the league, to spending the next eight years of his life in prison for attempted murder.
While incarcerated, he now faces yet another legal problem.
The former NFL cornerback is now being sued by by his ex-girlfriend for multiple alleged domestic violence attacks, according to court documents obtained by TMZ Sports.
“In the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman says she’d suffered numerous acts of violence at the hands of Browner dating back to July 2016, when she says they were still a couple. Three alleged incidents she details from that year include him hitting her across the face on one occasion, making her lose consciousness on another, and inflicting a carpet burn on her face on yet another.
In 2017, Browner’s ex claims he attacked her two different times while she slept — once, allegedly picking her up by the neck, slamming her onto the bed and then chasing her through the street in her undergarments. During a separate incident, she says he punched her repeatedly in the thigh while she slept, leaving severe pain and bruising.
Come 2018, the woman alleges Browner broke into her home one month before the attempted murder and pinned her down to a couch for 15 minutes, threatening to hurt her and eventually making off with her phone and keys. In July, she says he broke in again … and tried killing her in front of their kids.
The details are harrowing — Browner’s ex claims he broke into her place through a window, dragged her back into the house, smothered her face into the carpet to the point she almost lost consciousness … and then brought her and their two kids out to the living room to petrify them further.”
Browner was arrested in July 2018 and was charged with attempted murder, first-degree residential robbery and other counts. He pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child in a negotiated plea agreement in December 2018.
His last game in the NFL came in 2015 as a member of the New Orleans Saints.
