Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed apparently didn’t deal well when confronted with a poorly stocked men’s room at a convenience store early Saturday morning.
The kicking-for-accuracy enthusiast was cited for disorderly conduct and criminal mischief after throwing a temper tantrum because the towel dispenser was empty.
Police said he broke the towel dispenser then used profane language to an employee and also outside the store. Reed caused damage to a towel dispenser as he was infuriated at the fact that there were no towels in it, according to a news release by Trooper Shawn Askins, who issued the citations.
I was under the impression that a team rule mandated Steelers players carry around a Terrible Towel on their person at all times. I guess I’ve learned something this morning.
Those of you familiar with the more sensational side of sports blogging are probably well-versed in the tales of Reed, but for the initiated: there’s a lot of good stuff out there. Happy hunting.
