After playing in the AAF during the league’s brief existence, Kameron Kelly was able to earn a spot on an NFL roster, but it seems he may have squandered his golden opportunity with some terrible decisions off the field.
The Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back was said to have been arrested Friday morning at a Pittsburgh-area bar and charged with two misdemeanor counts of making terroristic threats and a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest, according to court documents obtained by Chris Hoffman of KDKA.
“The criminal complaint says police were called to Mario’s South Side Saloon for a man, identified as Kelly, refusing to leave. He’s accused of also threatening an employee, saying he would “knock” him “out” because the jukebox didn’t play the song he requested.
Police say they tried to explain to Kelly that he wasn’t allowed back in, but he tried to go back inside anyways.
During all this, the officer on scene reported that the foot of a woman, identified by Kelly as “his girl,” was stepped on. Kelly then allegedly became aggressive and threatened the officer.”
Kelly’s behavior was so erratic that in order to “gain control,” the officer punched Kelly in the face multiple times. Kelly was then arrested.
He was treated at the hospital where he continued to be disorderly and eventually taken to jail.
