Patriots receiver Antonio Brown accused of sexual assault

According to an ESPN report, newly-signed Patriots receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of sexual assault by a former personal fitness trainer.

Britney Taylor was a former gymnast at Central Michigan University, where she met Brown as college students. Taylor and Brown reportedly met at a bible-study group and became friends during their time in school together between 2007 and 2009.

According to the lawsuit, which was submitted Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida, they then lost contact until the summer of 2017. Brown hired her in June of that year to help him with physical training, and allegedly committed at least three separate unwanted personal advances on Taylor, including exposing himself to her, kissing her, and then masturbating and ejaculating on her back, all without Taylor’s consent.
