If that's Hollywood, FL, he's likely in for a world of hurt in family court, (if he cares about time with his kids). Florida family law judges don't take kindly to shit like this. Allegations like this happen all the time, but to do so in front of the police, and video it, is a whole 'nother level of unfit.

Really he just keeps saying get the fuck out if here. Hi. Bitch, etc. Cops are completely disinterested in the verbal nonsense. People love video!

I legitimately wonder if CTE is an issue here. Or some other neurological condition.

I wasn't sure about CTE, but then watching Hard Knocks and all the stuff that happened since... That's my bet.

You might have more insight on his CMU days, but it just seems like he was a decent dude and then something the last 3 years has changed dramatically.

This Antonio Brown stuff feels more troubling than entertaining.
Pretty much every time you read about a player who dies with CTE, there's always the mid-career "he was a great guy" and then later life "he changed, he had mood swings, he lashed out, etc". By all appearances, Brown is the same trajectory, just accelerated.

I think it would be overstating it to say he was a decent dude. He was difficult at CMU and Pittsburgh, but manageable from everything I've heard. I really do think there's a possible mental/neurological condition at play, but I also think he's been laser-focused his entire life on football and proving people wrong about where he was drafted, etc., etc. and now that that's been taken away, the wheels are coming off. It's probably some from Column A and some from Column B.

Throwing the bag of gummies into the street was an interesting fact added to some of the articles I had seen (including a close up of the bag). And the fact that he had them easily accessible.

I’ve been morbidly fascinated with Brown’s Twitter posts and also read up a bit on his background. You take seems pretty plausible to me. He’s had his share of off-field issues going back to high school, but the erratic behavior in recent months is insane.
