Pittsburgh Steelers’ Chris Rainey, a rookie running back, was just arrested in Florida for slapping his girlfriend!
That’s just awful!!
He was apparently arguing with his girlfriend when she got into a car and he tried to pull her out.
Witnesses said that he slapped his girlfriend across the face, then chased her when she ran off with his cell phone.
He was arrested and booked on a single count of misdemeanor simple battery.
The Steelers, in a classy move, have dropped Rainey from their team.
Because women beaters don’t deserve fame and fortune.
He played every game for the Steelers this season, returning 39 kickoffs for 1,035 yards.
He could have had a promising career, but he threw it all away because he couldn’t control his anger.
Sad. We hope his girlfriend is okay.
