    From ESPN. Just in case you didn't know.

    But for all Brown's good deeds and athletic prowess, there appears to be a dark side to him as well. He has been frequently accused of violent crimes, primarily toward women.
    An 18-year-old accused Brown of forcing her to have sex after giving her whisky, but a jury found him innocent of assault and battery in the 10-day trial in 1965. He was accused of throwing his girlfriend from a balcony in 1968, but when the 22-year-old woman refused to name Brown as her assailant, the charge of assault with intent to murder was dropped. He was fined $300 for resisting a deputy.
    Brown was acquitted of assaulting a man after a traffic accident in 1969. He was fined $500 and spent a day in jail after beating up a golfing partner in 1978. He was charged with rape, sexual battery and assault in 1985, but the charges were dropped when the 33-year-old woman gave inconsistent testimony.
    The next year, he was arrested for allegedly beating his fiancée after accusing her of flirting. He spent three hours in jail, but three days later the 21-year-old woman said she didn't want to prosecute.
    In October 1999, Brown was convicted in Los Angeles of smashing the window of his 25-year-old wife Monique's car, but was acquitted of making terrorist threats against her. The judge sentenced him to three years' probation, stripped him of his driver's license for a year, fined him $1,700 to be paid to a battered woman's shelter and a domestic abuse fund, and ordered him to attend special counseling for domestic batterers.
    When Brown refused counseling, he was given a six-month sentence. He was released from jail in Ventura County (California) in July 2002 after serving less than four months.

    Yes, I did see that movie. It was pretty good.

    It's odd he beats up so many women. Kind of re-inforces a very negative stereotype.

    Or maybe BB should hang out with whoever the hell he wants to hang out with. This is ridiculous.

    About athletes? Football players? Men who weigh over 200 lbs? Men whose initials are JB? Actors? Athletes-turned-actors? College lacrosse stars? Men in general?

    Oh, wait, that stereotype. Why even bring that up, man?

    A violent football player. I'm amazed. Are some of you guys that hooked to people you don't know? Stop letting the stupid stuff ruin this for you. I promise you if they miss this oppurtunity next year we'll of wish we cherished this week more.
