Antonio Brown’s behavior, as alleged in two lawsuits filed against him in Florida, has attracted the attention of the National Football League and could ultimately lead to discipline of the Steelers wide receiver, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The league’s personal conduct policy prohibits “conduct by anyone in the league that is illegal, violent, dangerous, or irresponsible, puts innocent victims at risk, damages the reputation of others in the game, and undercuts public respect and support for the NFL.”

“We are aware of and will continue to monitor the civil suits” against Brown, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Wednesday.

Brown faces two lawsuits stemming from an incident in Florida in April in which he is alleged to have wrecked a rented luxury apartment and threw furniture and other items off a 14th-floor balcony that nearly hit people below.

Under its wide-ranging conduct policy, the NFL can mete out discipline to any league employee without any police charges being filed, as it did when it suspended Ben Roethlisberger for four games to start the 2010 season even though the Steelers quarterback was never charged with a crime.
