Steelers’ Jeff Reed fights restroom towel dispenser


At 6pm on Saturday, February 14, millions of couples around the world obligatorily celebrated their relationship by going out to expensive dinners and buying diamond encrusted platinum pendants for loved ones to wear a few times a year–men were stressed, and women were disappointed.

Several hours earlier, Pittsburgh Steelers’ kicker Jeff Reed was fighting a towel dispenser at a Sheetz convenience store in New Alexandria, a small town 35 miles east of Pittsburgh, because the (usually very understanding) dispenser refused him a towel, forcing him to dry his hands on his pants.

Trooper Shawn Askins, who charged reed with disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, each carrying a maximum fine of $300 and 90 days in jail per offense, says “Reed caused damage to a towel dispenser as he was infuriated at the fact that there were no towels in it,” and continued to clarify that Reed threw a temper tantrum in the restroom, broke the towel dispenser, and cussed at an employee while on his way out.

More information is being gathered.

Reed makes 83% of field goals (162 of 196) and has scored 733 points for the Steelers in his career–what he does off the field is much less impressive.
