TMZ Sports is reporting Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown was involved in a domestic dispute, but was not arrested. In January, a woman contacted the Hollywood, Florida police department about alleged misconduct by Brown. The nature of the alleged misconduct has not been released.

“Mr. Brown was involved in a domestic dispute. No arrests were made.” A representative told TMZ sports.

Brown has been involved in off and on the field incidents the past two years. Already on shaky ground with the Steelers because of missing a must-win Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Brown was also involved in an incident where he is alleged to have thrown furniture off his condo balcony last April.

A report refuted by Brown’s lawyer in a statement to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

The Steelers organization, and the NFL, take any report of domestic abuse seriously. It would not be surprising to see the NFL open an investigation into the alleged incident.

UPDATE

The Steelers released the following statement, this via Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
