Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend and a practice squad team member surrendered to police after getting into a fistfight at a Station Square nightclub, authorities said today.
Townsend was at Margarita Mama's at 1:45 a.m. Friday when Chris Graham, whose age and address were not available, began arguing with practice squad member Raymond Burgess, Pittsburgh police said.

Burgess and Graham began fighting and Townsend jumped into the fray, said police spokeswoman Diane Richard.

"Mr. Burgess threw punches, hitting Mr. Graham in the face," Richard said. "As he was beating Mr. Graham, Mr. Townsend jumped in and started hitting the victim with a closed fist in the head and face."

At one point during the fight, Graham was knocked to the ground, Richard said. A witness helped Graham up and the two left the nightclub and went to the city police zone station in the South Side to file a report.

Summary citations for simple assault were issued for Townsend and Burgess, and the two surrendered Sunday at Pittsburgh Municipal Court, Downtown, Richard said.

"Mr. Graham indicated that he knew the men he was arguing with were Pittsburgh Steelers," Richard said.

Graham suffered a 1-inch cut under his eye and a bloody lip, but a police report didn't indicate whether he sought medical treatment. It wasn't known today what the men were fighting about.

Representatives for the Steelers couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Stupid thing to do if ya ask me. Townsend jumped in? Making it 2 on 1? That's a p%$hied thing to do. Hope Tomlin steps in now and makes an example out of these two guys.

Agreed, but I think this still puts Tomlin in a tough spot - if he lays the law down too hard, could he possibly "lose" the team, so to speak?
