MIAMI (AP) - A Florida family is suing Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Desmond Bryant, accusing him of showing up drunk at their home, banging on the front door and ripping off a door handle.
The lawsuit seeking unspecified damages was filed Monday in circuit court by attorney Robert Fiore. He represents Isaac and Iris Baker, who Fiore says were terrorized along with their three children when Bryant showed up outside their house at 5:30 a.m. Feb. 24.
The lawsuit says the 6-foot-6, 311-pound Bryant tried to yank open the door while the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Isaac Baker struggled to stop him.
Bryant played for the Oakland Raiders before signing with the Browns last week. He has apologized for the South Florida incident but still faces a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge.
Representatives for Bryant could not immediately be reached for comment.
