Report: Giants K Josh Brown cited for violating restraining order after initial arrest
New York Giants kicker Josh Brown was reportedly cited for violating a restraining order two months after the initial arrest that led to his one-game suspension. The information was released by the Kings County (N.Y) prosecutor's office on Friday, according to SNY.
Brown was originally arrested for a domestic violence incident in May 2015. The New York Daily News reports that a protective order was placed five days later preventing Brown from coming within 500 feet of his then-wife's residence but that he violated that in July by driving by the house.
"I think he's been driving by, seeing like who's car is in the driveway, what I'm doing, if the babysitter's here or not," his then-wife told deputies at the time, according to the incident report. "He's not supposed to be doing that."
Brown, 37, has been suspended one game by the NFL for the initial arrest, and Brown’s wife at the time told police that he had been violent with her more than 20 times prior to that arrest. The Giants re-signed Brown to a deal worth $4 million over two years after the kicker earned his first Pro Bowl selection last season.
