The suit, Ophir Sternberg et.al. v. Antonio Brown, first reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, seeks $15,000 in damages for emotional distress. "I know nothing about it", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said during his weekly news conference Tuesday.

Antonio Brown is being sued over an incident that occurred in April in Florida in which he was allegedly so agitated that he was throwing furniture off his 14th-floor balcony.

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

You can read the full TMZ report here but the jist is a man named Ophir Sternberg is suing Brown claiming multiple items including large vases and an ottoman came crashing down near his young son almost hitting the boy.

Sternberg charged that the objects fell within a foot or two of himself and his grandson, and could have caused severe injury or death. Sternberg claims that his daughter now shows "symptoms of fear and anxiety" and is "having night tremors every night". Security personnel determined that the objects were thrown by Brown from the 14th floor, and security video apparently exists; the lawsuit does not indicate whether Brown appears on the video. The victim in one of the lawsuits claims a 22-month-old child was almost hit by an item thrown from the balcony.

TMZ reported, citing multiple police reports, that Brown told police he noticed $80,000 in cash and a 9mm handgun missing from his apartment when he returned from an 11-day trip the day the day before the alleged furniture-tossing incident. That lawsuit was filed in Miami-Dade County, Fla. on August 15. That lawsuit contends Brown breached the lease agreement by "destroying, damaging defacing the premises, as well as furnishings and appliances" belonging to the plaintiff.
