The legal hits just keep on coming for newly re-signed Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown as now he is being sued over a January 2020 incident with a moving truck driver.
Just last month, the 32-year-old Brown was able to settle one of the many lawsuits that have been filed against over the past few years. That settlement was with the woman, Britney Taylor, who had accused him of rape in 2018.
Now he faces a new lawsuit that was filed Wednesday in Broward County by the driver of a moving truck, Anton Tumanov.
Tumanov claims Brown and his trainer threw rocks at his moving company truck and then attacked him after refusing to pay the $4,000 moving bill.
After locking himself in the house and refusing to speak to the police, Brown was eventually charged with felony battery, burglary, felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery, and misdemeanor criminal mischief by authorities in Broward County, Florida over the altercation. Brown’s trainer, Glenn Holt, was charged with one count of felony burglary and battery.

In June of 2020, Brown pleaded no contest to a felony burglary charge and misdemeanor charges of battery and criminal mischief and received two years of probation.
In court documents obtained by Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times, this new civil lawsuit against Brown claims that when Tumanov arrived at the residence, he was “met with resistance and violence.”
Brown and his trainer, Glenn Holt, then “proceeded to verbally and physically attack (Tumanov), causing severe personal injuries.”
Tumanov claims that as a result of the attack he “continues to suffer severe bodily injuries, pecuniary losses, and mental anguish.”
Tumanov is seeking over $30,000 in damages.
