Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter arrested after win vs. Dolphins

The Pittsburgh Steelers are riding high following Sunday’s 30-12 win over the Miami Dolphins. Outside linebackers coach and former Steelers player Joey Porter, however, ended his night with an arrest for an altercation with a police officer.

Porter was arrested at 9:30 p.m. Sunday night outside of a bar called The Flats on the south side of Pittsburgh after an altercation with a doorman and security guards.

Porter was taken to the Allegheny County Jail and charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, public drunkenness and terroristic threats, per the Pittsburgh Police Department.
The Steelers’ Director of Communications, Burt Lauten, gave a statement on Porter’s arrest to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

"We are aware of an incident tonight involving Joey Porter,” the statement read. “We are still gathering information as it pertains to the situation, and we will have no further comment until we get more details."

Porter also made headlines during last year’s playoffs for an on-field altercation during Pittsburgh’s postseason victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Towards the end of the game, Porter came onto the field and provoked Bengals cornerback Adam Jones, who was then flagged for a personal foul. Coaches are not permitted to be on the field of play during a timeout, and Porter was later fined $10,000 for his role in the incident.

What did OJ do? He tried to rob someone who had his memorabilia? Not that extreme

I saw that Porter was placed on administrative leave today.

Mike Brown would have extended his contract at a good rate.
