NFL, Patriots must take swift action regarding latest Antonio Brown allegation

  NFL, Patriots must take swift action regarding latest Antonio Brown allegation Taking swift and severe action against Antonio Brown based only on a civil lawsuit would have created a horrible precedent. Not taking swift and severe action against Antonio Brown based on the most recent allegation of misconduct made against him would set an equally horrible precedent. Brown’s text messages to a woman who had made an unofficial allegation of misconduct against him were intended to deter her from making an official allegation of misconduct, through intimidation and harassment. No employer should allow such behavior to go unpunished.

Antonio Brown may have crossed the line, as far as the NFL and the Patriots are concerned.

Robert Klemko of SI.com reports that Brown has sent harassing text messages to the unnamed accuser who shared allegations with Klemko regarding Brown’s behavior after Brown hired her to paint a mural at his house.

“I’m on my knees painting the [mural], and he walks up to me ... naked, with a hand cloth covering his [penis] and starts having a conversation with me,” the woman told Klemko. “Unfortunately, I’ve been tried [by men] a lot of times, so I just kept my cool and kept painting. After that, it all ended abruptly.”

Report: Antonio Brown declined to sign $2M settlement with accuser

Report: Antonio Brown declined to sign $2M settlement with accuser Antonio Brown began settlement discussions with a woman accusing him of sexual assault as far back as April.

The woman accusing Antonio Brown of rape met with NFL officials on Monday in a 10-hour marathon session, where she spelled out her case against the For what it's worth, Brown 's accuser did not file a police report before filing the civil suit and law enforcement officials are not conducting a criminal

Antonio Brown has been in the news for all of the wrong reasons over the last month or so and o The first instance, Brown allegedly exposed himself while the other time, he masturbated on her back. In 2018, Taylor alleges Brown forcibly had sex with her while in his hometown of Miami.

Brown reportedly has sent a group text message to the woman, accusing her of fabricating a “bull s---” story in an effort to “make up some stuff for money.” He also called her a “super broke girl with a lot of kids,” and he encouraged someone to whom Brown refers as “Eric B” to investigate her in order to “see how broke this girl is.”

Brown also sent a screen shot of an Instagram photo of the woman’s children, adding that the woman is “awfully broke clearly.”

On Thursday night, the woman’s lawyer sent a letter to the NFL explaining that Brown is “intimidating and threatening . . . our client, in violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.”

“Our client . . .  is understandably frightened by these text messages, which are clearly intended to threaten and intimidate her,” attorney Lisa J. Banks wrote. “While she certainly qualifies as a ‘starving artist,’ she has never approached Mr. Brown, nor will she, about seeking money to compensate her for his sexual misconduct, contrary to his allegations in the text messages.”

Cooper-USA TODAY SportsThat report comes to us via ESPN’s Josina Anderson. It also suggests that the NFL is not going to take any action prior to Brown’s scheduled debut with the Patriots on Sunday. I'm told a date has been set for Britney Taylor, Antonio Brown's accuser, to meet with NFL next week. Source desired to keep the date private, at this time.

NFL officials interviewed accuser Britney Taylor for 10 hours on Monday. It was the first step in league's investigation into claims against Antonio Brown . Brown then showed up three hours later for their first meeting In a statement released via her attorney to DailyMail.com on September 11

A new report says Antonio Brown and his accuser Britney Taylor had settlement talks for months. The lawsuit claims she “felt a wet spot soak through her clothing” and that “ later , in astonishingly profane and angry text messages , Brown bragged about the incident to her.”

Amazingly, Brown’s lawyer was included in the group texts. Darren Heitner tells Klemko that Heitner did not advise Brown to communicate with the woman.

The league responded to the letter within an hour. Investigators will speak to the woman’s lawyers about the situation.

“This sort of intimidation and harassment is the reason victims are often so reluctant to step forward in these cases,” Banks told Klemko. “We have confidence the NFL and the Patriots will step in and end this behavior.”

The Personal Conduct Policy expressly prohibits “[s]talking, harassment, or similar forms of intimidation.” The fact that the behavior has been directed at a woman who has made allegations regarding misconduct makes the situation even worse for Brown. Employers routinely take swift and decisive action against employees who are accused of misconduct and who harass or intimidate those who have made the accusations.

NFL told Antonio Brown to stop contacting second accuser

  NFL told Antonio Brown to stop contacting second accuser Regardless of the Patriots’ decision to cut Antonio Brown, the NFL still has jurisdiction over multiple incidents that potentially violate the Personal Conduct Policy. As to one of those incidents, the NFL has issued a directive to Brown that sheds light on whether and to what extent the league is taking the situation seriously. The lawyers who represent the second accuser issued a statement on Friday afternoon explaining that Brown had been advised to “have no further contact with our client, either directly or through his associates,” and that the NFL “also advised us that it contacted Mr. Brown’s representative and reiterated that Mr.

'As a rape victim of Antonio Brown , deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision,' Taylor said in a statement released by her lawyer. Since Taylor's accusations have come to light, a second woman is now claiming to have been sexually harassed by Brown in 2017.

Antonio Brown has reviewed the sexual misconduct allegations made by an unnamed artist included in a recently published Sports Illustrated article and denies that he ever The athlete was allegedly three hours late to the appointment, and then passed gas multiple times in the vicinity of Prisk’s face.

The Patriots, who like any NFL team wouldn’t have signed Brown if they’d known about the sexual assault and rape lawsuit that was filed last week, likewise have not been inclined to terminate the relationship based solely on uncorroborated allegations in a civil action. If Brown sent these messages to a woman who chimed in with her own allegations of misconduct by Brown, that gives the Patriots a much more tangible basis for severing ties with Brown.

Regardless of what the Patriots do, the league can take action against Brown. The aggressive and angry response directed to an accuser could be enough, for example, to cause the Commissioner to believe that Brown “may have violated” the Personal Conduct Policy as to Britney Taylor, justifying immediate placement of Brown on the Commissioner-Exempt list.

However it plays out, Brown apparently has committed yet another serious error of judgment, one that has placed his current employment in real jeopardy.
