Atlanta mayoral candidate Antonio Brown was nearly killed Wednesday when four boys, ages 7 to 11, stole his Mercedes Benz in broad daylight.

The Atlanta city councilman was attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony in northeast Atlanta around 12 noon when four boys jumped into his car, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.

The white Mercedes-Benz coupe had a keyless push-to-start ignition and Brown didn't realize the car had started, he said.

Brown struggled with the 11-year-old driver and held onto the door handle as the boy hit the gas. The Councilman was dragged one city block before he let go of the handle. He was not injured.

Brown doesn't plan to file charges against the kids, who he says acted out of desperation, Atlanta's WSB-TV reported.

"This is a generational poverty issue. These kids, it's 12:30 in the afternoon. Why aren't they in school? Why aren't we enforcing systems to ensure that if they are not in school, they're in recreational centers?" he said.

Young children are recruited to steal cars for car theft rings because they typically receive less jail time than adult car thieves.

Brown voted earlier this year to withhold $73 million from the Atlanta police budget, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

The news outlet aired video of the Councilman shaking hands with the overworked and underpaid Atlanta police officers who responded to his 911 call (see video below).

The Mercedes has not been recovered.

Brown is under federal indictment related to alleged charges in the years prior to him winning the council seat in 2019, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Antonio Brown is apparently back on his meds and back with the mother of his children, Chelsie Kyriss, the same one he evicted from his home.

The former Patriots wide receiver proposed to Chelsie, months after evicting her from his Florida mansion.

On Thursday, Antonio shared an Instagram video that showed him holding Chelsie and asking her to be his wife. The couple reconciled after months of turmoil and bad press. They dated on and off for several years and she is the mother of his 3 sons.

Antonio, 31, predicted Chelsea would be back after their last public falling out in January.

He sent numerous text messages to Chelsie, mocking her and sending photos of the keys to her Bentley that he repossessed.

In one text message he wrote "U going to be back here we going to recommit for our boys u hear me then I want to feel your love no more basic I miss u."

Chelsie captioned the text: "This is what happens when you refuse to go back!"

One of Antonio Brown's baby mamas has taken legal action against the unemployed NFL star for child custody and financial support.

Brown was slapped with a paternity lawsuit by Chelsie Kyriss. According to the documents obtained by The Blast, Kyriss filed the suit in a Florida court on January 15.

Kryiss, who is Caucasian, asked the court to confirm Brown is the legal father of their three sons. She also wants the court to determine a set amount for child support.

The lawsuit comes just days after the troubled wide receiver threw Kyriss and their children out of his Hollywood, Florida home and live-streamed himself cursing at her in front of their children.

Brown has five children - four sons and a daughter.
 

Brown accused Kyriss of attempting to steal his Bentley automobile - a gift from Brown to Kyriss during happier times.

In a previous court case in December, Brown filed an eviction notice to legally evict Kyriss from his home.

In the suit, Brown said Kyriss was a "former girlfriend" who had been living at the home as his guest. He said he repeatedly asked her and his kids to leave, but she refused. "Defendants continue to remain in, occupy or otherwise possess the subject property without honest of Plaintiff," reads the document.

Brown gave Kyriss a deadline of December 18 to be gone and remove her personal belongings from the property, but she missed the deadline.

Antonio Brown's agent has filed paperwork with the NFL player's association to cut ties with the troubled wide receiver until he seeks psychological help.

Sports agent Drew Rosenhaus filed the documents to terminate his representation of Brown after the 31-year-old Florida native live-streamed himself screaming profanity at his baby mama, Chelsie Kyriss, and police officers outside his Hollywood, Florida home.

The video was the latest in a string of self-destructive incidents that prompted his release from two NFL teams in 3 months.

Rosenhaus's withdrawal as Brown's agent doesn't become official for five days, according to ESPN.

Rosenhaus informed the NFLPA that he would like to continue working with Brown but only if Brown seeks psychological help for his behavioral problems.

Antonio Brown's long-suffering baby mama Chelsie Kyriss responded to Internet users who ask why she continues to go back to him.

Chelsie shares three children with the former New England Patriots wide receiver. Earlier this week, Brown went ballistic on Chelsie, hurling profanity at her in front of their children and a small army of police officers who were called to his Hollywood, Florida home.

Chelsie was there to pick up their sons. But she made the mistake of trying to drive off in her Bentley - a gift from Brown which he took back.

Brown live-streamed his meltdown, as police escorted Chelsie and the children to patrol cars.

According to Snitch, Brown texted Chelsie and begged her for sex prior to her arrival. She had every reason to believe he would be lucid and stable when she arrived, but she was wrong.

In one text message he wrote "U going to be back here we going to recommit for our boys u hear me then I want to feel your love no more basic I miss u."

Chelsie captioned the text: "This is what happens when you refuse to go back!"

The Hollywood Police Department in Hollywood, Florida severed ties with former NFL player Antonio Brown after he disrespected their officers during a public meltdown.

The 31-year-old former NFL wide receiver live-streamed himself shouting expletives at his baby mama - in front of their minor kids and a small army of police officers.

The Hollywood police were called to Brown's home following a dispute with his baby mama on Dec. 14.

"Get the f**k out of here you b**ch a** pu**ies!" he yelled, as police escorted Chelsie Kyriss and their children to patrol cars.

The department was so outraged over Brown's treatment of their officers that they returned his donation for their Police Athletic League field.

"While officers were on the scene, Mr. Brown treated them with disrespect and disdain," said a police spokesperson.

"We made the decision to sever ties between Mr. Brown and the Hollywood Police Athletic League. We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown."

According to TMZ, cops returned Brown's donation for their 7-on-7 league and they banned him from working out on their field ever again.

"We will not take money from a donor that we cannot have our youth be proud of or represent our organization."

If Brown sets foot on the PAL field again, he could be arrested for trespassing.

Colin Kaepernick is in Atlanta preparing for his big workout for the NFL on Saturday. 13 NFL teams have confirmed their scouts will attend the workout at the Atlanta Falcons training facility.

NFL wannabes, such as Migos rapper Quavo Huncho, pictured left, reportedly reached out to Kaepernick in hopes of participating in the workout.

Unemployed wide receiver Antonio Brown (pictured) is also eager to catch passes from Kaepernick during Saturday's workout.

Brown, 31, was sent packing by the New England Patriots after several women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The workout was reportedly arranged by rapper Jay-Z, the NFL's social justice consultant and halftime entertainment coordinator.

ESPN's Josina Anderson said the teams she spoke with were unaware of the workout until Kaepernick tweeted about it earlier this week.

A memo from the NFL left teams scrambling to rearrange their schedules at short notice.

13 teams, including the Falcons, Browns, Dolphins, Lions and Giants, confirmed their attendance. But one team that has no plans to send a scout is the Dallas Cowboys.

When asked by 105.3FM the Fan if the Cowboys were sending a scout, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it clear the Cowboys wanted nothing to do with Kaepernick.

"That's not correct," said Jones, who is close friends with President Trump. "We're not going to have anybody there."

The NFL will provide tapes of Kaepernick's workout and interview to all 32 teams. Jones conceded that his scouts may look at the tapes if necessary. "We'll look at the tape if we need information there."

Kaepernick last played in an NFL game in 2016. No other team showed interest in him after he opted out of renewing his contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

Insiders say Kaepernick's inflated ego will not allow him to settle for a backup quarterback spot.

Unemployed NFL star Antonio Brown reportedly encouraged death threats against a Sports Illustrated reporter who published his 2nd accuser's story.

Klemko, who is mixed race, took to Twitter to repost death threats and racist tweets directed at him from Patriots fans.

"Watch ur back negro," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user wrote: "I really hope something bad happens to you soon. Like SOON and it will trust me."

On Sunday in a since-deleted tweet Brown encouraged Patriots fans to bring the heat on Klemko. He retweeted a post by The Daily Beast, saying "System working effectively."

Brown, 31, was let go last week by the New England Patriots after he sent a group text threatening the unidentified artist.

The woman claims she was hired by Brown to paint his portrait for a mural in his Pittsburgh home in 2017.

She said that while working on the portrait, Brown emerged from his bathroom naked and holding a hand towel over his genitals.

After Sports Illustrated published her story, Brown tried to intimidate her by sending photos of her children via group text.

He was released by the team after just 11 days.

Klemko is no pushover. In 2014 he was suspended by Sports Illustrated after he had a physical altercation with a cab driver in Chicago.

Antonio Brown announced his retirement from the NFL in a series of tweets over the weekend. One of his tweets contained what some are calling a "veiled threat" to the league.

The troubled New England Patriots wide receiver came under fire recently after two women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The Patriots seemed willing to stand by their star wide receiver. But he was let go on Friday after he sent a group text to his latest accuser, calling her "broke" and urging a friend to investigate her background.

Brown, 31, announced his retirement from the game on Sunday.

"Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !," he wrote, referring to his $9 million bonus that he forfeited when he violated the terms of his contract.

In a tweet sent earlier this month, Brown appeared to send a threat to the league.

"The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth," he tweeted.

He quoted an African proverb that roughly translates to: "If you don't initiate your young men into the tribe, they will burn down the village."

Brown also called out Patriots owner Robert Kraft for his hypocrisy after he was caught with his pants down in a Florida massage parlor.

Brown tweeted, "different strokes different folks clearly."

Kraft was reportedly furious after he learned about Brown's texts to his accuser. Brown's dismissal from the team was ordered by Kraft.

After Brown was let go, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, tweeted that Brown "is healthy and is looking forward to his next opportunity in the NFL. He wants to play the game he loves and he hopes to play for another team soon."
