Noting a argument between Brown and Ms. Jackson that ended with an altercation at the doorway to his home in Florida, the police report claims that Jackson ultimately refused to complete a victim affidavit with the detectives that attended the scene.
In response, Darren Heitner, the lawyer for the steelers' star receiver, was quick to release a statement via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN addressing the details of the report.

Aside from an initial statement on Tuesday, the Steelers have yet to comment on these recent revelations from Wednesday, and the league office had not addressed the issue publicly either at the time of writing.
Statement from @steelers Spokesman Burt Lauten on Antonio Brown: We were made aware earlier today of the alleged incident involving Antonio Brown last month in Florida. We are still in the process of gathering information, consequently we have no further comment at this time.— Chase Williams WPXI (@chasepwilliams) February 5, 2019
Edit: The NFL have confirmed with Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that they are now looking into the alleged incident.
