Through the course of their investigation, police determined Brown had become angered and started throwing things in the apartment and off the balcony on the 14th floor.

Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown is accused of almost striking a toddler with one of the pieces of large furniture he hurled from a 14th-story balcony during an April outburst, a new lawsuit says.

As we previously reported, Brown is being sued by a man who claims Antonio nearly killed his 22-month-old son during his tirade.

The lawsuit also alleges that Brown became belligerent with authorities, once they arrived at the scene. Brown is being sued both by his landlord over damage to the unit and furniture, and by a man named Ophir Sternberg, whose 22-month-old kid was allegedly almost hit by the falling debris.

On April 25, police were called again when Brown reported that his black Rolls-Royce had been stolen.

Police reviewed security footage, which showed three women enter the apartment in order to clean it on April 13.

TMZ reports that AB is being sued by Ophir Sternberg, the father of the child, who claims that very large vases, a heavy ottoman and other pieces of furniture landed within a mere foot or two from the toddler and his grandfather.

Brown has refused to pay for the damage, according to the suit.

One day earlier, Brown told police upon returning from an 11-day trip that he noticed $80,000 in cash missing from a bag he previously hid in the closet. Brown is also being sued by the owner of the condo that he is leasing from on the grounds for damages and breaching the apartment agreement.

Both lawsuits were filed in Miami-Dade County in August and seek more than $15,000 in damages.
