ALLEGHENY CO. Pa. (WTAJ) — Antonio Brown has been making headlines all over the world and this one is a doozy!

After Brown signed with the Patriots, he was accused of sexual assault by a former female trainer.

The Allegheny County DA said they’re looking into the accusations. They stated:

There is nothing extraordinary about doing that.  This office, as a matter of course, will review information in a federal lawsuit whenever that information references potential criminal activity, even if that activity had not been previously known to law enforcement.  Another example of this would be a federal civil rights lawsuit filed against a police officer or department alleging behavior on the part of the officer or the department that was not previously known.

Stephen A. Zappala, Allegheny County District Attorney
