Security and police were called to the scene and determined the items came from Brown's place - and the whole thing was captured on surveillance video.
Police in Sunny Isles Beach returned to Brown's apartment a day later on April 24 after getting reports of the Miami native throwing large objects - including two vases and an ottoman - off his balcony, almost hitting and killing a toddler and his grandfather, who were nearby, according to a civil lawsuit filed by Ophir Sternberg.
TMZ obtained a copy of a lawsuit on Tuesday that shows Brown is being sued by a man who says the Pittsburgh Steelers star almost killed a 22-month-old child when he began throwing items and furniture off the balcony of his 14th-floor Florida apartment. While no one was injured, the 22-month-old child was very almost struck, and one of the vases landed in a hot tub.
On April 24, Brown called police to the apartment for a reported theft.
The pool area suffered minor damage from Brown throwing objects off the balcony as well. When officers arrived, Brown was yelling at security "telling them he thinks they set him up".
Brown was not arrested in connection to the incident, but officials at the apartment complex told him they would start eviction proceedings against him.More news: South African finance minister Nene resigns over Gupta scandal
"I found the vehicle", Brown told responding officers.
The landlord has filed a second lawsuit over damage to the unit and furniture.
That lawsuit contends Brown breached the lease agreement by "destroying, damaging defacing the premises, as well as furnishings and appliances" belonging to the plaintiff.
The Steelers have said they will not be commenting on the situation.
We reached out to Brown's agent for comment - but haven't heard back.
