MIAMI, Fla.-- Free agent NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown was in a Miami courtroom Tuesday for a civil suit claiming he trashed a multi-million dollar condo last year.

Brown, recently released from the New England Patriots, arrived at court with his attorneys.

The owners of the Mansions at Acqualina sued Brown, claiming he caused $35,000 worth of damage; an amount more than twice the statutory limit.

Another lawsuit from the same case claims Brown nearly hit a toddler and her grandfather with furniture that he threw out a window.

Brown's attorney, Darren Heitner said they have filed a countersuit in the landlord tenant dispute.

Heitner is also representing Brown in the sexual assault lawsuit. He had no comment on that allegation.
