Steelers Assistant Coach Joey Porter Arrested
Joey Porter assistant coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers was arrested Sunday evening, Jan 8th after an altercation with a police officer. Bar staff had called police to deal with an unruly customer who turned out to be the Steelers assistant coach. Reports say that Joey Porter entered the bar in a belligerent fashion as well.
Maybe he had started celebrating early as this encounter occurred shortly after the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Miami Dolphins this same night. Local area reporter Chris Mueller tweeted out the events live. The Pittsburgh Steelers official response was that they were aware of an incident occurring, but are still gathering details.
