Porter is now scheduled to appear in court in six weeks.
Porter Has Court Date After Fight In Las Vegas
(KDKA) After an argument with one of his on-the-field rivals, former Steelers linebacker Joey Porter has a court date in six weeks.
The incident happened at the Palms Casino last night in Las Vegas.
Police say Porter reportedly got into a fight with Cincinnati Bengal’s tackle Levi Jones at a blackjack table. Apparently, their history of trash-talking on the field added fuel to causing the incident.
Officials report that Porter threw a drink on Jones and allegedly punched him.
Porter was given a citation by police for misdemeanor battery. And Jones suffered a cut above his right eye.
The Steelers released Porter earlier this month for financial reasons. He has since signed a multi-year deal with the Miami Dolphins.
