ESPN’s Jordan Raanan reports that former St. Louis Rams kicker Josh Brown had been physically violent towards his wife Molly, according to statements she made to police.
From the article: “Brown was accused by his ex-wife of pushing her into a large mirror in their bedroom, throwing her on the floor, jumping on top of her and pinning her face to the carpet with his forearm on the back on her neck. In a separate incident, he allegedly kicked a door off the hinges and into the arm of her son, kicked a chair into his wife and pushed her over a paper shredder.
According to documents that ESPN acquired, “Police were called on multiple occasions to their residences in Washington, St. Louis and New Jersey over the years, Molly Brown said, and she had a protection order against her husband in 2013. She said the order was later dropped because of progress they had made in counseling.”
The 37-year old Brown signed a two-year deal with the New York Giants. He has been suspended by the NFL for one game.
