The Pittsburgh Steelers may have had a bye week on Sunday, but it certainly wasn’t a quiet one after it was reported that Anthony Chickillo was arrested Sunday.
“Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Anthony Chickillo was arrested over the weekend, charged with simple assault, criminal mischief and harassment.
A law enforcement source tells Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 the alleged incident involves Chickillo’s girlfriend and that it occurred at Nemacolin.
Chickillo was arrested by Uniontown Pennsylvania State Police and arraigned this morning. According to the court docket, a $10,000 unsecured bail has been set, and he has a Preliminary Hearing scheduled for October 30.”
“We are aware of an incident involving Anthony Chickillo last night and are still gathering information,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten said in a statement, per the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. “Until we have further details, we will not provide any further comments.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker has appeared in 3 games this season.
