JEFF REED V. SHEETZ TOWEL DISPENSER



Was it inevitable for the infamous party animal to cross paths with the long arm of the law? Perhaps. But it finally happened at around 3 AM this morning at the New Alexandria Sheetz, where Steelers kicker Jeff Reed was cited with criminal mischief and disorderly conduct after throwing a tantrum over an empty paper towel machine. Hey, we've all been there. No one wants to resort to using those hot air hand dryers, especially at such a late hour.

It's never good when a player gets in trouble with the law, but it's probably better he hit the Sheetz bathroom towel dispenser than some random Yinzer drunk-ordering a Shmuffin and a 64-ounce Mountain Dew. But once again it brings to mind my thought that very few good things happen at 3 in the morning.

Hopefully, the Skipster can put this unfortunate incident in the rear-view mirror and get back to his offseason conditioning program in short order.

Only a Steeler would end up getting arrested for having no towels in the house....I can't blame the guy

Only Jeff Reed could get national attention for a citation. He wasn't even arrested! It's a citation, it's like a speeding ticket!
I was at this Sheetz Sunday. No towels of course. Gotta use the Murraysville Sheetz. Automatic towel dispensers. Best restrooms around.

If only he had the terrible sham wow with him. This entire tragedy could have been avoided.

I don't care if Reed does a bar event every weekend, but I do hope he's smart enough to not be drinking and driving.

I think the bigger question is, what the was he doing in New Alex at 3am? There is NOTHING out thataways.

I've got Gene Simmons as Skippy in the next casting call.

At least he washes his hands after using the men's room. I wonder why the employees at this Sheetz didn't notice this before a customer did? Hmmm..........

I think we all know what young drunken males are doing at 3am on Rt 22 East....

It rhymes with strip hub

Well, yeah, but I would think that someone of his stature could afford somewhere a little classier than Climax

I guess even if it was not empty, he would still have thrown tantrums over not having artistic luxury tissue paper in that canister. Such attitude! He deserves what happened, I reckon.
