Steelers Reed Angry at Towel Dispenser, Cited by Police.


Jeff Reed the  place kicker on the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers apparently isn’t still celebrating his teams victory. He was cited early Saturday morning for beating up a towel dispenser.  The towel dispenser that Reed is angry about does not dispense the Myron Cope Terrible Towel but the towel of the paper type.

Reed was at a Sheetz gas station about 35 miles east of Pittsburgh in a small borough called New Alexandria when he threw his fit aboout the gas stations restroom being out of paper towels. Yes you are reading correctly, this guys team just wins his sports biggest game and he’s ticked off about paper towels.

Reed has been cited for disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, offenses similar to traffic tickets that carry a maximum fine of $300 and 90 days in jail each. Police said he broke the towel dispenser then used profane language to an employee in and outside the store.

“Reed caused damage to a towel dispenser as he was infuriated at the fact that there were no towels in it,” according to a news release by Trooper Shawn Askins, who issued the citations. The incident occurred Saturday about 2:50 a.m.

Steelers team spokesman Dave Lockett said the team would have no comment now and that they were“We’re still gathering information right now.”

Does anyone besides me see either a Sheetz or a Bounty  commercial in Mr. Reed’s future?

Reed has made nearly 83 percent of his field goals (162 of 196) and scored 733 points for the Steelers in his career.
