Report: Former Patriot Trent Brown Sued for Domestic Violence
Starting offensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders, Trent Brown, who started for the New England Patriots for the entirety of the 2018 season, has been sued in California for domestic violence, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.
Here is what Florio said about the lawsuit against Brown.
"The lawsuit, filed Monday in a California civil court on behalf of Diorra Marzette-Sanders, makes various accusations against Brown, the most serious of which are that Brown 'slapped the Plaintiff across the face leaving her mouth bloody and her face bruised,' that he has 'bruised, bloodied and battered' her on multiple occasions..."
"The lawsuit alleges that, in March 2019, Brown 'grabbed her face and covered her mouth while choking her out until she couldn’t breathe,' leaving 'a ring of bruises around her neck.' The lawsuit also alleges that, in April 2019, Brown 'grabbed Plaintiff’s arm, took her into a room, locked the door, slapped her across the face and punched her in the ribs' while the couple was vacationing in Hawaii. In June 2019, Brown allegedly slapped Marzette-Sanders in the face, resulting in police being called to the scene and a police report being filed."
New England traded a third-round pick in 2018 to the 49ers in exchange for Brown and a fourth-round pick. The Patriots let Brown walk in free agency this past offseason, which resulted in the offensive lineman earning a four-year, $66 million deal with the Raiders.
The result of this lawsuit could have an impact on his tenure with Oakland.
