MIKE TOMCZAK ARRESTED



It's been a bad run for Steeler quarterbacks of late, first with you-know-who and now with former Steeler QB Mike Tomczak, who was arrested Monday afternoon in connection with a domestic dispute.

According to Bell Acres, Pa., Police Chief Brian Brown, “Mike lunged at his wife, grabbed her and stepped on her foot."

Per WPXI, Tomczak was charged with two counts of simple assault. He was arraigned before District Judge Robert Ford and released on his own recognizance, police said.

Tomczak, a member of the Super Bowl XX champion Chicago Bears and the guitar player in the infamous Super Bowl Shuffle video, was a Steeler from 1993-99 and their primary starting QB in 1996. Tomczak took that 1996 team to the second round of the playoffs and eventually lost to the New England Patriots by a 28-3 final in extremely foggy conditions. Tomczak struggled mightily that postseason, with zero touchdowns, four interceptions, and a 40.9 rating; he would later lose his starting job to Kordell Stewart in 1997. Tomczak ended his career as a Detroit Lion in 2000, suffering a broken right tibia in an exhibition game against Oakland in the preseason. Currently, Tomczak is a director at SMG Sports Management and has continued to work as a sports commentator.

Tomczak married model Dawn Osthoff in 2008, and their wedding was chronicled by Pittsburgh's Whirl Magazine, which Osthoff modeled for.

uh-oh! looks like I've assaulted every woman I've ever danced with:
lunged (check),
grabbed (check),
stepped on foot (check).

damn...

obligatory snark: don't hair extensions generally match the same shade as the person's natural hair? That python coiled around her head: epic fail.

I wish I had more money so that I could come to appreciate how truly chic that spaghetti with meatballs hairstyle really is.

I'm still waiting for Goodell's statement and verdict.

Didn't Bradshaw push JoJo down a flight of stairs for telling him his bit in Hooper sucked?

I would have something on Kordell, but his b!tch would have pulled him out of the game if he ever assaulted him.

Let this be a reminder to the Steelers, those two OSU picks should be traded before another OSU grad tarnishes the Steelers image.

I never knew what Cowher saw in this clown, but then again, Cowher was never good at evaluating the quarterback position until 2004 when Ben Roethlisberger dropped to the 11th pick.

I saw Mike at one of my local watering holes one time and he was groping some girl around closing time. I don't think he was punished but waking up next to the woman he was groping was punishment enough.
