EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Molly Brown did call hotel security on her allegedly "drunk" husband, a Giants kicker Josh Brown, when he was pounding on her hotel room door at the Pro Bowl in January, and the NFL did help her switch hotel rooms, according to an NFL source.
But the league did not hide her and her children at a different hotel, the source said, and the Browns were together as a family without any known incidents the rest of the weekend -- including on the field on Sunday after the game.
That account, from a league source, is slightly different than the one alleged by Molly in the police "follow-up" report which was released by the King County (Wash.) Sheriff's Office on Wednesday and obtained by SNY. In that report, Molly alleged the NFL moved her and her children to a different hotel after the incident "where Josh would not know where they were," the police report said.
The NFL source confirmed the incident occurred on the Friday night of Pro Bowl weekend and that hotel security was called. The source said that the Browns had three rooms at the same hotel -- one for Molly, one for her two sons, and one for Josh and their young daughter. Following the incident, Molly was moved to another room in the same hotel, but Josh and the kids stayed where they were.
According to the source, the Browns were all together as a family on Saturday, and then again on Sunday at the game and on the field after the game.
Molly had told police that the trip came while she and Josh were in the process of getting a divorce. She agreed to go when Josh offered to take her and her children to Hawaii and pay their expenses, though she later called that "a big mistake," according to the police report.
Molly alleged that she was subject to "cutting comments" from Josh on that trip, and that he took her phone and searched through her texts, according to the police report, all before the incident at the hotel occurred. The league source said that the NFL was, obviously, aware of this incident when it decided to only suspend Josh Brown for one game for violating the NFL's domestic violence and Personal Conduct Policy. That suspension was based solely on the arrest of Brown in May, 2015.
