Oakland Raiders receiver Antonio Brown has settled a lawsuit filed by a man who claimed his toddler was nearly hit by furniture Brown threw off a balcony last year, TMZ.com reported Monday.

Ophir Sternberg said that his 22-month-old son was walking near the pool at a Florida apartment complex in April 2018 when “large objects started to fall from the building many floors above them.”

Sternberg’s lawsuit claimed that items tossed by Brown, including vases and an ottoman, landed just feet from the child, who was allegedly traumatized by the event.

According to TMZ.com, Brown and Sternberg agreed to a confidential settlement and the matter has been closed.

Brown, traded to Oakland from Pittsburgh last month, was expected to report for the start of the Raiders’ offseason workout program Monday.
