The Pittsburgh Steelers former linebacker was arrested for theft and debts not paid out to a Las Vegas casino.
Joey Porter, the former Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker and Super Bowl champion, was arrested over the weekend in California because of theft and a bad check complaint from earlier in the year, according to the Post-Gazette.
Porter was released on Monday after paying $70,000 to the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. A court date has yet to be set for Porter.
The 13-year NFL veteran was always know for his larger-than-life personality during his playing years, famously engaging in a war-of-words with Seattle Seahawks' tight end Jerramy Stevens before Super Bowl XL, which the Steelers won 21-10.
Porter made the All-Pro team and Pro Bowl four times in his career, three while he played for Pittsburgh. Porter ended his career with 98 sacks.
