Guess We Probably Could Have Seen This Coming...

Please excuse the poor Photoshop job get the idea.
So ummm, apparently Ed Reed's not the only bitch Silverback likes to smack in the mouth...

For those of you who have yet to read about this nice little black mark (or should I say red mark) - Our own beloved James Harrison was arrested Saturday for allegedly breaking down the door to his girlfriend's bedroom, snatching her cell phone from her, breaking it (yes, the phone) in half (!!!) in an attempt to keep her from calling 911, and slapping her across the face. He is consequently being charged with one count of simple assault and one count of criminal mischief.

I'm not particularly sure what to say here beyond - wow, that's pretty shitty.

I mean, come on Silverback, you're better than least I thought you were. Guess this gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "Silverback Attack"...way to go asshole.

For reference on the headline, see below:

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

PS - his court date is set for this Thursday, March 13...anyone interested in tailgating?

Just because some pissed off bitch accuses him doesn't make him guilty. If Silverback had smacked her she'd have a laceration or severe bruising.

My guess is that she wanted something that he didn't want to give and got pinched for it. Hopefully the investigation clears him.

C'mon Cotter-mon: show some faith in the ol' Silverback!

"Innocent UNTIL proven guilty"!

I don't know man.

It didn't sound to me like he was denying it at all...

It's not disputed that he knocked down the door or broke the cell phone.

Put it this way -
If A is true and B is true, C is most likely true (or more likely than not) know?

Either way, this is not the kind of attention the Steelers need.

Well, men in general are pigs. Steeler players (as much as I love my boys) are not exempt from that.
