PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan)- Here's your dose of Steelers drama for the week.

According to a TMZ Sports report, Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown is being sued by a man named Ophir Sternberg after Brown threw furniture, including vases and an ottoman, out of his 14th story apartment window in April. 

The furniture landed feet away from Sternberg's 22-month old son and his grandfather. The grandfather and the toddler were walking around the pool area of the high-end apartment complex when they saw the items fall from many floors above them. 

Police were called and said Brown caused extensive damage to his unit in a "fit of rage." 

The incident was also captured on surveillance video. 

Sternberg is suing for assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress, claiming Brown acted "without regard for human life."
