Steelers assistant Joey Porter reportedly threatened to kill doorman
More information is starting to come in regarding Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter’s bar altercation and arrest.
According to the police report obtained by Jacob Klinger of Pennlive.com, Porter threatened to kill the doorman, by the name of Jon Neskow, when he wasn’t allowed into a Pittsburgh area bar roughly four hours after the Steelers’ win over the Miami Dolphins.
“Last time you (Porter) were here, you threatened to kill me,” Neskow said, per the police report. “You need to leave. You are not getting in.”
The Steelers assistant then got within inches of Neskow when the police arrived at the scene. Porter ignored the first arriving officer causing him to eventually call for more backup. The report states that Porter put his hands on Neskow, lifted him into the air and had to be wrestled off the doorman. The document also says that Porter appeared to be intoxicated.
Porter was later arrested and charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, trespassing, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness, according to police.
He was released on $25,000 bail around 4:30 a.m. Monday, WPXI reported. His first hearing is on Jan. 19.
