Steelers linebackers coach Joey Porter was arrested after Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins.
On Saturday, the Pittsburgh Steelers put the hurt on the Miami Dolphins in the first round of the playoffs, winning 30-12. That gave them plenty to celebrate, but it may also have lead to the arrest of their linebackers coach Joey Porter.
Porter was arrested around 9:30pm, and his mugshot shows a clear case of the drunk-eyes. He has reportedly been charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, public drunkenness, terroristic threats and trespassing.
According to reporter Bob Hazen, Porter was attempting to enter a bar called The Flats on Carson when he assaulted the doorman. He was quickly arrested and taken to Allegheny County Jail. The Steelers organization has placed Porter on leave while they investigate the incident internally. He has been on the Steeler’s staff since 2014 after a 13-year playing career. Hopefully Porter’s arrest won’t be a distraction as the team prepares to play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in the next round of the playoffs.
