Report: Antonio Brown May Face Criminal Charges in ‘Next Few Weeks'

A civil lawsuit may not be the only case on the plate of Antonio Brown's lawyer this fall.

Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko published a report Monday revealing new allegations of Brown's sexual misconduct in addition to several other incidents involving the New England Patriots wide receiver.

In an interview Tuesday on WEEI's "Dale & Keefe," Klemko suggested Brown could face criminal charges stemming from those incidents in the near future.

"We did hear over the course of the reporting that there were a couple people considering criminal charges against Antonio Brown," Klemko said. "We weren't able to report on any of those specifically because they haven't gathered all of their evidence and made the filings and all that. I think that is going to be coming in the next few weeks."

Klemko didn't name the specific incidents that could result in criminal charges against Brown. But Klemko reported several instances of Brown refusing to pay employees he's hired, and it's possible that could result in legal action.

"(Brown) has a history of hiring people to do a job and then creating some sort of division when the pay is due and then not paying," Klemko said. "At some point, that becomes illegal."

The only active case against Brown is the civil lawsuit his former trainer, Britney Taylor, filed accusing him of rape and sexual assault. Taylor reportedly met with the NFL for 10 hours Monday as it considers discipline for the receiver, but keep an eye out for more charges Brown could face this fall.
