Antonio Brown, wide receiver for the New England Patriots, is apparently being sued by his doctor for farting in his face and not paying his bill.
The strange news comes just days after the NFL player was accused of sexually assaulting a woman who used to work as his physical trainer.
Britney Taylor has reportedly accused Brown of assault on three separate occasions; two in 2017 and one incident in which he allegedly forcibly raped her at his house in 2018. Darren Heitner, Antonios attorney, said in a statement his client denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit.
According to The Guardian, Brown will not be prosecuted on sexual assault accusations due to the statute of limitations – meaning too much time has passed between the alleged incidents and the case being brought to the authorities attention.
The Allegheny county district attorneys office said in a statement:
Our office, along with the Allegheny county police department, made contact with counsel for the plaintiff in the federal lawsuit involving Antonio Brown.
Procedurally, it appears there is a statute of limitations issue in moving forward with any inquiry involving the Allegheny county allegation mentioned in the lawsuit.
The NFL is said to have interviewed Britney Taylor and is continuing to investigate the accusations, though it is not currently clear whether the league will be interviewing Brown.

According to Sports Illustrated, this is not the first time legal action has been taken against Antonio Brown. A half-dozen lawsuits have reportedly been taken out against the player, for reasons such as refusal to pay wages to employees.
The recent lawsuit from Browns doctor seems to be just the latest in a string of reports and accusations against him and his unusual behaviour.
