Report: Raiders RT Trent Brown Sued over Alleged Domestic Violence Incidents

The Raiders have endured a few too many off-field problems over the past few months, but they are apparently getting at least one more.

Just five games into a four-year, $66 million deal to anchor the right side of the Raiders offensive line, Trent Brown has reportedly run into a civil lawsuit alleging that he threatened and harmed the mother of his son.

Via ProFootballTalk:

“The lawsuit, filed Monday in a California civil court on behalf of Diorra Marzette-Sanders, makes various accusations against Brown, the most serious of which are that Brown “slapped the Plaintiff across the face leaving her mouth bloody and her face bruised,” that he has “bruised, bloodied and battered” her on multiple occasions, and that he threatened to “shoot yo *** in the f–king head” when she threatened at one point to leave with their son.

The lawsuit alleges that, in March 2019, Brown “grabbed her face and covered her mouth while choking her out until she couldn’t breathe,” leaving “a ring of bruises around her neck.” The lawsuit also alleges that, in April 2019, Brown “grabbed Plaintiff’s arm, took her into a room, locked the door, slapped her across the face and punched her in the ribs” while the couple was vacationing in Hawaii. In June 2019, Brown allegedly slapped Marzette-Sanders in the face, resulting in police being called to the scene and a police report being filed.”

Outside of washing their hands of the Tyreek Hill stories, the league has taken a strong stance against domestic violence and so have the Raiders. So this will be a story to watch closely, especially considering the allegations unfortunately involve more than one incident.

Brown filled a huge need for the Raiders at right tackle in the offseason and has been arguably their best offensive lineman through five games. If he were to miss any amount of time to league discipline, the Raiders would be hard-pressed to find a suitable replacement.
