PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Monday, March 1, 2010

A district judge this afternoon tossed out simple assault and resisting arrest charges filed against Jeff Reed and gave the Pittsburgh Steelers kicker six weeks to complete community service on other charges connected to a drunken incident on the North Side.

Pittsburgh police in October said Reed attempted to fight with them when they confronted teammate Matt Spaeth for urinating outside a bar.

During a hearing in Pittsburgh Municipal Court today, District Judge Richard King of Carrick dropped the misdemeanor charges and ordered Reed to complete the community service before returning in six weeks for charges of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. King said he would consider dropping those charges as well.

Maybe that's because that's all his "crimes" have warranted?Maybe you can't, but I can sleep feeling secure at night knowing Jeff's on the loose. :chuckle:

I have said it before but hopefully he will learn from this.

:laughing: :thumbsup:

Or maybe the DJ felt that locking him away for 10-20 years really didn't fit the "crimes". :chuckle:

Most likely what happened is the DA and the defense attorney came to a mutually acceptable agreement and decided that a community service penalty fit the bill in this case.

The sentence fits the crime, but his repeated "public stupidity" remains a concern.

The Steelers have placed another vote of confidence (franchise tag) in Jeff's court...I only hope he takes advantage of this opportunity as he most certainly won't receive another.

I dunno - he probably should've gotten at least 3 to 5 for beating the hell out of that towel dispenser. :chuckle:

Now, did he ask the judge to get the same punishment as Janikowski would have? :chuckle:

No Way!!! I read the transcripts of that case and the towel dispenser came at him with a serrated edge. Reed was acting in self-defense on that one. :wink:

Like all you holier than thou types aren't already serial offenders of pissin in public.

Way to go Jeff for standing up for your teammate.



So, when does Ben's trial start and when does he get out of prison?

You're kidding, I hope? :banging:

No criminal charges have been filed or are pending against Ben. It's a civil suite, the woman doesn't have the backbone to testify before a grand jury.

If anyone ever sees the inside of a jail cell over that case it would likely be the accuser for perjury.
