The women denied taking the cash and the gun - and insinuated it could have been other people who were in the house in the days before Brown left for his trip.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is reportedly being sued for almost killing a 22-month old child during a fit of furniture-throwing rage back in April.

The next day, cops were called back to the apartment complex after getting calls about Brown throwing furniture - including vases - off his balcony.

On April 24, Brown called police to the apartment for a reported theft.

Security and police were called to the scene and determined the items came from Brown's place - and the whole thing was captured on surveillance video. A glass coffee table was broken along with other items.

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. It goes on to say surveillance video clearly shows objects falling from the balcony and almost striking the two people on the ground.

The security director did not wish to take police action against Brown and stated they would be starting eviction proceedings for him to leave the premises.

But, when cops showed up to his apartment, Brown said, "I found the car" and closed the door in their faces. 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.

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

An attorney for the landlord said the damages were estimated to be about $100,000.

The Steelers have said they will not be commenting.

There's been no comment from Brown.
