Antonio Brown Granted Bail While Facing 3 Charges

Antonio Brown Granted Bail While Facing 3 Charges Brown currently faces three charges after turning himself in following an arrest warrant issued in Broward County. The charges include felony burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief. Brown is alleged to have physically assaulted a moving truck driver earlier this week. The former NFL star is accused of throwing a rock at the driver's truck before a scuffle outside Brown's home. Brown was able to secure a bond to cover his bail set at $100,000. His trainer, Glenn Holt, was also arrested for his alleged involvement in the incident. Brown's off-the-field issues continue to pile up, causing more skepticism to grow over a plausible return to football.

Philadelphia Flyers Mascot Gritty Under…

Philadelphia Flyers Mascot Gritty Under Investigation for Assault Police in Philadelphia are reportedly investigating an assault accusation against Gritty, the official mascot of the Flyers, the city’s National Hockey League team. Gritty is being accused of punching a 13-year-old boy in 2019 during a photo opportunity for season ticket holders. The boy is said to have patted Gritty on the head before walking away which prompted the mascot to take a “running start” and punch the boy “as hard as he could.” According to the boy’s father, Chris Greenwell, the punch caused a “contusion” to his son’s “lower thoracic spine,” otherwise known as a bruise. Greenwell initially attempted to handle the situation directly with the Flyers, asking the team to apologize and do “something special” for his son. However, his communication with the team allegedly “went south,” prompting him to file an official police complaint. The Flyers have since denied any wrongdoing by Gritty, saying they found “nothing to support [Greenwell’s] claim.” Flyers spokesperson, to ‘The Philadelphia Inquirer’
