Antonio Brown Is Attempting To Block Court Deposition Video From Becoming Public After He Reportedly Acted ‘Belligerent’ And Refused To Answer Questions
Unemployed former All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown has been in court in recent weeks attending depositions for his condo-trashing case, in which The Mansions at Acqualina claim Brown committed $80,000 in property damage and almost hit a 22-month-old toddler with furniture thrown from the 14th story balcony of a condo he was renting for $35,000 per month.
During the deposition, Brown was reportedly completely “non-complaint” and acted in a “belligerent” fashion as he refused to answer the simplest questions.
Antonio Brown was extremely noncompliant and flagrantly disorderly, to the point that he frustrated the totality of the proceeding.”
Oh, it gets worse … the attorney claims Brown’s deposition was filled with “tumultuous tirades, defiant rants, use of profane language and refusal to comport himself in a civilized and grown-up manner.”
“Once the deposition started, almost immediately, [Brown] was belligerent and pugnacious, refusing to answer the most routine of questions.”
Instead of answering questions, Brown allegedly “chanted, over and over, as if a mantra, a narrative of his own warped concept of the proceeding, namely that we should only address his counterclaim.”
Apparently, Brown’s deposition was videotaped and his lawyers are trying to convince the court from releasing the video to the public.
Antonio Brown is fighting like hell to make sure video of his condo-trashing deposition doesn’t see the light of day … the NFL star just filed docs in court to try to keep the footage under wraps.
in court docs just filed last week, Brown is asking the court to make sure footage from the depo is never made available to the public … filing a motion to make it all confidential
In the docs, Brown says if the video is seen … it’ll destroy his ability to get fair treatment in the lawsuit.
As for his actions during the depo … Brown — in separate court docs — said the attorneys’ descriptions of his actions were unnecessary, calling them “scandalous, redundant and immaterial.”
Brown adds the attorneys only released a description of his depo to “turn this into a media circus” for their “personal gain.”
Brown wants the court to NOT impose sanctions against him … but he adds he IS willing to retake his deposition.
While Brown is fighting off several lawsuits he’s also fighting the Raiders and Patriots for the guaranteed millions he believes he was owed before they cut him.
