New York Giants’ kicker, Josh Brown has some explaining to do. Allegedly, Mr. Brown has admitted to beating his wife in various journal entries and emails, according to documents released by Washington Police on Wednesday.
The admission is a part of evidence gathered by a detective in Kings County Wash. following Brown’s arrest last year when his wife at the time, Molly Brown called 911 and said he had assaulted her. Mrs. Brown then provided police with the documents.
The 4th-degree assault/domestic violence charges were dropped days after Mr. Brown’s arrest. However, Mrs. Brown told police her husband became physically violent with her shortly thereafter on various occasions.
In August the NY Giants’ kicker announced that he and wife had divorced. In an email obtained by police, Mr. Brown admitted he had, “objectified women and never really had worried about the pain and hurt I caused them.” In a journal entry, Mr. Brown also admitted he had “physically, mentally, emotionally and verbally been a repulsive man.”
According to TMZ, Mr. Brown circled the words “I’ve abused my wife,” in the same entry.
In another entry, Mr. Brown said he was addicted to porn and admitted he had: “Viewed pornography on a consistent basis to manage my desire for physical contact,” the entry read.
“I developed into a sexual deviant that viewed sex as a sport all most [sic].”
The NY Giants signed Mr. Brown to a two-year $4,000,000 dollar contract during the last NFL off-season. However, Mr. Brown was absent from the Giants’ opening game this season due to a one-game suspension the team enforced for breaching the team’s personal-conduct policy.
Despite his run-ins with the law, John Mara, the team’s co-owner has stood by the decision to sign Mr. Brown. ” All I can tell you is that we’re aware of all the allegations, and I believe all the facts and circumstances, and we were comfortable with our decision to re-sign him,” said Mara in August. The Giants declined to comment on Mr. Brown on Wednesday. It is unclear whether or not they are aware of the new allegations.
