Antonio Brown signed with the Bucs two weeks ago after serving an eight-game suspension, and we’re now just learning that he may have been involved in another off-the-field incident before he made his way to Tampa Bay.

According to David Ovalle of the Miami Herald, Brown was recently accused of angrily destroying a surveillance camera and throwing a bike at a security guard shack after he was repeatedly fined by his homeowners association for violating their policies. The HOA president told police that she was not going to press charges against the NFL wide receiver because she feared Brown would retaliate against her employees.

Antonio Brown, the superstar wide receiver who recently returned to the NFL after a slew of off-the-field troubles, was accused last month of angrily destroying a surveillance camera at the gated community in Hollywood where he lives and throwing his bicycle at a security-guard shack, according to a police report obtained by the Herald.

Hollywood police determined it had probable cause to charge Brown with misdemeanor criminal mischief for the Oct. 15 incident, the report said.

A spokesperson for Brown said Monday that she has been “assisting Mr. Brown for several months to resolve certain minor disputes with the housing authority
