Antonio Brown sued after throwing items from condo balcony

Brown says his 9mm firearm was also gone.

The Steelers have said they will not be commenting.

According to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports, Antonio Brown is being accused of almost killing a toddler in April when he threw furniture off the balcony of his 14th-story apartment after becoming upset.

Another lawsuit claims Brown almost hit a 22-month-old child and her grandfather with two vases and an ottoman that he threw out on April 24.

Brown has until Thursday to respond to Sternberg's lawsuit after filing for an extension in September.

Saint John oil refinery explosion worries residents
Saint John police said they are responding to an incident at the refinery and are asking residents to avoid the area altogether. The refinery is near several residential neighbourhoods about five kilometres from the city core, known as Uptown.

Sternberg charged that the objects fell within a foot or two of himself and his grandson, and could have caused severe injury or death.

"Since that day, (Amnon Sternberg) has exhibited symptoms of fear and anxiety, having night terrors every night and waking up numerous times in a panic and crying, when this never occurred prior to the incident", the lawsuit said. According to the lawsuit, footage of the incident does exist.

The pool area suffered minor damage from Brown throwing objects off the balcony as well. 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. It goes on to say surveillance video clearly shows objects falling from the balcony and almost striking the two people on the ground. However, according to TMZ Sports, when police arrived at the apartment that day, Brown said, "I found the car" and closed the door on the officers.

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

According to a signed lease included in court documents, Brown rented the furnished apartment for six months, between February and July.
