Steelers Safety's Brother Gets Five Years




POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- The brother of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Tyrone Carter had his sentence for driving with a revoked license increased from six months to five years because he failed to report to jail on time.

Tank Carter was scheduled to report to a Broward County prison on Jan. 6, but decided against it when his brother told him the Steelers had a good chance of going to the Super Bowl. On Tuesday, Broward Circuit Judge Stanton S. Kaplan increased the sentence.

"Even knowing what I know now, I would do it again," Carter said. "It was the greatest game in my life."

Carter watched the Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks from the 50-yard line in Detroit and partied with rapper Snoop Dogg after the game.


The brothers have been close since growing up in a rough section of Pompano Beach.

"I would have done the same thing," Tyrone Carter said of his brother's decision. Winning the Super Bowl meant "we finally made it together."

ading 4.5 years is kinda a bit too much considering he was only suppose to do 1/2 year
Im sure it will be reduced.....
The judge was proubably a Seahwak fan...........

That's a pretty stiff penalty for not reporting on time especially considering he was only scheduled to do 6 months in the first place. It will probably end up getting reduced at some point.

Yeah, this is just dumb on many levels. It's a little creepy that people can be this dumb on purpose.
