The Pittsburgh Steelers were hoping for an uneventful bye week after winning two of their past three games.

Unfortunately, that came crashing down with news Sunday evening that linebacker Anthony Chickillo was arrested early Sunday morning on assault, criminal mischief, and harassment charges.

As noted, the arrest stemmed from an alleged situation with Chickillo‘s at a local resort in Farmington, PA.

Chickillo was arraigned Sunday morning with an initial court date set for Oct. 30.

A sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2015, Chickillo has started nine games over the course of his four-plus seasons in the NFL.

The Steelers released a statement noting that they were aware of the situation, but declined further comment.
