Former Grove Port Madison High School football player and now Pittsburgh Steelers running back, Le’Veon Bell found himself in a bit of trouble a few days ago, which has brought on heavy consequences. According to Yahoo Sports, the Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t hold up their team charter flight for Le’Veon Bell while he was having blood drawn following a marijuana possession arrest.
So not only did Bell, the team’s second-year starting tailback, get charged with marijuana possession and likely a DUI (that’s why he was having blood drawn), he had to book a flight, go through security with the common folk and squeeze into a regular airline seat on the way to Philadelphia for the team’s preseason game on Thursday. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette confirmed that Bell wasn’t on the team charter but made it to Philadelphia on his own. It’s never good to see a hometown boy get into trouble. I hope everything works out for him. I know Columbus has some big Steelers fans!
