2020 Pitt football commit Tim Brown has been and charged with three criminal counts.

According to reports out of Florida, Brown was arrested on Thursday and charged with robbery, felony battery, and kidnapping during a felony. He was booked on Friday and placed on house arrest.

The report says that Brown, 18, and three other teens jumped a man outside of a Walmart, Brown then reportedly pointed a gun in his face before he and three others threw him out of a moving SUV.

The Palm Beach Post reports that at first the reported victim didn’t want to press charges and was hesitant to speak to police about the incident because of likely being afraid of retaliation but then did cooperate. After telling police details about the incident, the unnamed victim had a seizure, fell unconscious and was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach.

He was then pulled into the SUV where Brown then reportedly put a gun in his face and told him to let go of his cellphone. Then, the SUV pulled away and he was thrown from the moving vehicle.

The victim also reported that the four teens jumped him previously at his ROTC program. Two witnesses reportedly confirmed this incident to police.

Brown is a three-star defensive tackle and committed to Pitt back in June. This incident obviously puts his college athletic future in serious question.
