Antonio Brown -- MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

According to the initial police report in Hollywood, Fla., Antonio Brown allegedly shoved the mother of one of his children in a domestic dispute in January.

According to the police report obtained by 640-AM The Hurricane in Florida, the dispute arose when the woman arrived at Brown's home with their daughter and demanded money to pay for a hair appointment. The woman allegedly positioned herself in the doorway of Brown's home and refused to leave.

Brown then allegedly pushed her out the doorway, causing her to fall and scrape her arm.

Per the report, the woman later refused to press charges and was given information on domestic violence and how to file a restraining order.

In a statement released to the media, Brown's attorney, Darren Heitner, said the police report shows his client did nothing wrong.

"The complaintant ... acknowledged she refused to leave Mr. Brown's property after being asked and further refused to leave the doorway of his residence," Heitner wrote. "The complaintant did not want to provide a statement or press charges, and asked to retract her report after it was made."

Heitner went on to say that Brown will seek full custody of his daughter, which has been shared with the woman to this point.

The Steelers and league are investigating the incident. If Brown is found to have committed domestic assault in the case, he could be suspended by the league even though charges were not filed.

That could complicate matters for the Steelers in an attempt to trade the disgruntled receiver. Brown skipped out on the team's final regular-season game and has failed to respond to calls from Steelers management.
