Josh Brown’s ex-wife told police on the day of his 2015 arrest that the Giants kicker had been physically violent with her over 20 times and that she had previously had a protection order against him, and that the violence began when she was pregnant with their daughter back in 2009, according to an incident report obtained by Seth Walder of the the Daily News.
“Molly described in her statement the history of physical violence against her from her husband Joshua,” the incident report reads. “Molly stated that Joshua had been physically violent to her on more than 20 different instances over the past several years. She said that Joshua became violent after she became pregnant with their daughter.”
Though McAdoo said he did not know of Brown’s arrest at the time of his comments, he said it did not change his stance. However, the team was aware of Brown’s May 2015 arrest when it re-signed him to a two-year, $4 million deal with $1 million guaranteed in April.
