NFL Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett had his vehicle stolen in the Democrat-controlled city of Pittsburgh, where he was doing a radio interview.
The second-year quarterback was doing an interview with 93.7 The Fan at a Chevrolet dealership in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, when the NFL player’s vehicle was stolen from outside.
As ESPN reported:
Pickett was also briefly separated from some very important study material. The Steelers’ playbook was in the SUV, the source said but was recovered with the vehicle.
A man was arrested in the theft, WTAE reported, citing court records.
Monroeville police did not return calls requesting comment.
Now Pickett can study the offense before the Steelers’ second set of OTA practices Tuesday, and offensive coordinator Matt Canada can enjoy Memorial Day weekend without rewriting his entire scheme.
Following an investigation, police found Pickett’s SUV before arresting 60-year-old Christopher Carter for theft.
Carter was charged with “theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.”
As Yahoo Sports reported:
Kenny Pickett was sitting inside a local Chevrolet dealership Wednesday doing a radio interview with 93.7 The Fan and participating in an event, something that seems like a totally normal off-season activity for the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback.
Pickett’s playbook was found safe, and the Steeler’s offensive secrets are safe for the 2023 season.
The city of Pittsburgh, run by Democrat mayor Ed Gainey, “has one of the highest rates of motor vehicle theft in the nation,” according to FBI crime data.
