Aside from the Pittsburgh Steelers blowing a 23-7 lead to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football, the biggest news to come out of Heinz Field on that night was a still shot of a male Steelers fan with his hand around the neck of a pregnant Chargers fan. The Steelers released a statement on Tuesday, stating the fan would be banned once identified. “We strive to make events at Heinz Field safe for our guests,” the Steelers said in a statement. “This type of behavior seen in the photo is unacceptable and something we do not condone on our property. We are working with Heinz Field security as well as local authorities to gather more information on this particular incident as the Pittsburgh Police determines whether or not to press charges, and we will ensure those involved as the aggressors will not be permitted back into our stadium.” The Current spoke to Daniel Minshew, the man in the Chargers blazer, who said that his wife is pregnant. “I plan on calling police officials today about filing criminal charges,” he said. “My wife and I attend several road games annually and I myself have been to approximately a dozen away games and have never experienced anything like we did Sunday night.” – TO
