Wednesday night, reporters got a hold of some journal entries from Brown that were released by the King County (Wash.) Sheriff’s Office.
SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano wrote that the Giants kicker admitted to regularly abusing his ex-wife and other women since he was 7 years old. Some of the entries went into detail about Brown feeling like he was “God” and scaring the children in the house with his behavior.
He was charged with fourth-degree domestic violence assault last year, but it was dropped. Brown was suspended for one game by the NFL to start this season. No one knew why until the New York Daily News’ Seth Walder got hold of the police reports.
Brown’s ex-wife gave the journal entries to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
