Apparently a doorman wouldn't let him in cause they've kicked him out before and he was clearly drunk. He got in a fight with the doorman and sounds like a minor scuttle with the police officer responding to the fight.


Not his first run in with a police officer while resisting arrest.

The guy's a loser. Fire him and move on. He's become a distraction as a coach, which is completely unacceptable, especially a this point in the season.

From an Xs and Os standpoint, he brings nothing to the table. Find another former OLB who will bring fire and enthusiasm to the team.

Not sure if we fire him, but if we do, I wouldnt mind bringing in Kevin Greene to be our LB coach. He is apparently looking to come back, and not sure there is a job he would want more.

Porter is a scumbag.

Don't touch a cop. Duh. They'll slam you with every charge their highly educated minds can think of.


Steelers have placed him on "leave", by the way.

Not surprising he's dumb off the field too


Came here to say this. Dude is a thug on the field, off the field, and even on the sidelines as a coach

Seems like there are conflicting stories here.

Porter shouldn't have put himself in this situation. However, it appears this cop has been known to break the rules himself. There's reportedly four different instances where he did just that, one includes filing a false police report in an attempt to put someone behind bars.

Apparently this cop is very small, too. I heard he's like 5'6" and 170 pounds? How does he even take down Porter? Regardless, it seems like neither person in this situation was in the right.

It seems the Steelers have put Porter on leave. No word if that is paid leave or not. It's hard for the team to judge this situation, to be honest. Do you punish Porter, who could be innocent? Do you overlook it for now and let an assistant coach, who may be guilty? It sucks for them either way.

Regardless, it's hard to imagine no Porter on Sunday means the Steelers are in danger of losing. Either way, there's just no excuse for Porter to act like this. He shouldn't be putting himself in a situation like this at all. Even if innocent, you have to be smarter than to think you (as a "celebrity" in this city) should be going out and getting plastered just hours after you coached the Steelers to a big win. You just have to know better than to do this.

What are the conflicting stories?

If there are instances of the police officer filing false reports that should have been handled internally. There are always claims of false reports after arrests, no one ever did anything.

He was called to the scene by another police officer who reported Porter was harassing the doorman. He didn't just walk by and enter himself into a situation.


His report doesn't sound terrible. Porter should know better and conduct himself as an adult not as a drunken teenager but on a criminal level it doesn't sound that bad. In WV the 1st assault against the police officer is a misdemeanor, the second becomes a felony. This may or may not have been his 1st assault on a police officer, if so he probably walks away with very little punishment. Whether the bad press it causes for the Steelers will be enough for him to lose his job is up to the organization.

I thought he was taking a break from coaching until his kids are done school. Agree that this is the job he would want more than anything Razz If not Greene, then Gildon or Abraham could teach Dupree but I'm not sure if Abraham wants to coach.

Just because you're big doesn't mean you know how to get square with folk.

With all due respect, it's obvious Porter was in the wrong here.

I could only read a bit of the report , he let the team down when he was placed on a leave, but I think they will be ok.

The team should discard this drama and forget all about this and get ready for the game. The fight in the browns pregame had underlying meaning, but will this Cool
