Antonio Brown allegedly shoved his baby mama to the ground over a heated argument at the Steelers star’s home in Florida, according to a police incident report obtained by multiple outlets on Wednesday. The woman, however, did not file a victim affidavit and Brown, 30, was not arrested.
On Jan. 17, Wiltrice Davay Jackson went to drop off the pair’s daughter at Brown’s residence before asking to be reimbursed for the child’s hair appointment, she told police.
Brown let the daughter inside, then shut the door on Jackson, police say. Jackson yelled to be compensated until Brown re-opened the door. Jackson positioned herself so she wouldn’t be shunned again, which led to Brown allegedly using both hands to knock her down. Jackson told police she then took the daughter back and left for her mother’s house.
Police said Jackson showed law enforcement her wrist, which included “an abrasion with some scabbing.”
“The closed police report proves that Antonio Brown did absolutely nothing wrong,” Brown’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, said in a statement Wednesday, according to ESPN.
TMZ first reported the incident Tuesday and the NFL is said to be looking into it.
“Unfortunately, the media alluded wrongdoing on the part of my client in a ‘domestic dispute’ when in fact no wrongdoing ever occurred on his part. The complainant, who is the mother of Mr. Brown’s child, acknowledged that she refused to leave Mr. Brown’s property after being asked and further refused to leave the doorway of his personal residence. The complainant did not want to provide a statement or press charges, and asked to retract her report after it was made,” Heitner said.
Brown, a father of five (four sons and the daughter) is now seeking full custody of the said daughter, according to Heitner. Brown fathered only the daughter with Jackson.
“Additionally, the complainant unnecessarily involved my client’s minor child in her false reporting, causing irreparable harm to a minor child,” Heitner said. “Therefore, Antonio Brown’s family law attorney, Jaclyn Soroka, Esq. will be filing an action with the Court today seeking full legal custody of his child accordingly.”
