Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown is accused of almost striking a toddler with one of the pieces of large furniture he hurled from a 14th-story balcony during an April outburst, a new lawsuit says. The suit, Ophir Sternberg v. Antonio Brown, first reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, seeks $15,000 in damages for emotional distress.

Brown has not commented, CBS Pittsburgh reports.

All three denied taking anything from the apartment.

A civil lawsuit filed in Miami-Dade County, Florida, charges that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown threw several objects from a high condominium balcony, very almost hitting a man and his 22-month-old grandson. Sternberg claims Brown threw them from the apartment balcony and "Mr". When officers arrived, Brown was yelling at security "telling them he thinks they set him up". "I know nothing about it", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said during his weekly news conference Tuesday.

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

According to the lawsuit, Amnon Sternberg and his grandfather had been walking near the pool when large and heavy objects, including two vases, an ottoman and other pieces of furniture started to fall from the building from many floors above them for several minutes. The victim in one of the lawsuits claims a 22-month-old child was almost hit by an item thrown from the balcony.

Security and police were called to the scene, and surveillance footage reportedly showed Brown "in a fit of rage" and causing extensive damage to his apartment. When officers arrived, Brown opened the door and stated, "I found the auto".

Brown, a Miami native in his ninth National Football League season, has until Thursday to respond to the lawsuit, KDKA reports.

There's been no comment from Brown.
