Last night's Hall of Fame game between the Steelers and Vikings was pretty boring (were you expecting something else from a preseason game in early August?). But it seems there was some action in the stands involving a former Pittsburgh player. According to numerous reports out of Canton, Ohio, former Steelers kicker Jeff Reed had to be escorted out of Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium after he allegedly tried to fight a Pittsburgh fan in the crowd:
Not surprisingly, it sounds like alcohol may have played a role in the incident. One fan who was seated near Reed said that the ex-NFL player was "hammered" at the game:
That same fan's friend also took a selfie that featured Reed speaking with a police officer in the background:
If this is all true, it shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Reed was arrested twice back in 2009—once for destroying a paper towel dispenser at a convenience store and once for public intoxication. But still, this isn't exactly the kind of thing you want to be involved in at a game featuring your former team. Welp.
