Pittsburgh just can't let Baltimore win at anything ... even when it comes to bad days for kickers. From the AP (our bold):
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed has been cited by city police for public intoxication and disorderly conduct outside a bar a couple of blocks from where the team beat the Cleveland Browns a few hours earlier. Police say Reed was cited outside McFadden's Bar about 9 p.m. Sunday. Reed kicked two field goals in the 27-14 victory. This is Reed's second brush with the law this year. He paid $543 in fines and restitution after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct and criminal mischief for damaging a paper towel dispenser in a convenience store bathroom in New Alexandria in February. Team spokesman Dave Lockett says the team is still gathering information and has no comment. Police say Reed will be mailed a summons to appear in city court.
