Steelers' Joey Porter fined $300 over dispute at bar

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter has been fined $300 after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct stemming from a dispute with a bar bouncer and a police officer last month.

Porter entered the plea Tuesday in City Court in Pittsburgh, ending a case in which he originally faced a serious felony charge of aggravated assault for allegedly grabbing the officer's wrists outside a bar after a bouncer denied him entrance Jan. 8.

Four days later, Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. said he'd reviewed surveillance video of the incident and announced plans to drop all but two citations against Porter - for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness - setting off a public relations tug of war involving Porter, police and the city's Citizen Police Review Board. The public drunkenness citation was dropped Tuesday before Porter pleaded guilty to the only remaining charge.
