Antonio Brown’s name continues to make headlines. Antonio recently garnered attention after a feud with his record label, Secure The Bag Entertainment, over a $500K lawsuit aimed at him and his criticism of Tom Brady’s ongoing divorce from Gisele Bündchen. Brown’s financial account is now set to suffer a significant blow.
According to TMZ Sports, the former NFL star was ordered to pay a moving truck driver $1.2 million after allegedly assaulting him nearly three years ago. According to court records, Anton Tumanov was awarded the damages by a Broward County jury earlier this month. It happened after Brown failed to respond to or appear at hearings in the case.
Court documents revealed that the jury held Brown accountable for $407,000 in Tumanov’s past and future medical expenses. It also includes $793,000 for past and future pain and suffering. Tumanov first sued the ex-Buccaneers receiver in May 2021, alleging that Brown assaulted him while he was trying to make a delivery to the football player’s Broward County, Fla. home on Feb. 11, 2020.
Tumanov claimed in his suit that Brown snapped at him when the two got into a dispute over payment for the services. He was represented in the lawsuit by Jeffrey R. Davis of Jeffrey R. Davis P.A. and Michael Lotto of the Ward Law Group. Tumanov claimed the 34-year-old damaged his vehicle and struck him several times.
He claimed in the suit that it all resulted in “severe bodily injuries.” Tumanov also reported the incident to the police, and Brown was eventually charged with three criminal offenses. The receiver, on the other hand, eventually struck a deal with prosecutors in June 2020.
He agreed to probation and other stipulations, including community service hours and an anger management course, in exchange for the case being dropped. It appears that the case was never dropped, and instead cost him a lot of money. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
