According to KDKA-TV, the jury has found the three men accused of stabbing and assaulting Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Mike Adams last summer not guilty.
During the trial, the defense for the three accused men claimed that Adams was stumbling around drunk and started the incident when he bumped into one of the men, causing him to drop his food.
In addition, Adams was accused of changing his side of the story several times since the incident took place. The defense stated that Adams had every reason to lie about what happened that early morning in order to keep him out of hot water with the Steelers.
During the trial, a surprise witness testified that Adams was daring one of the accused to hit him.
Adams was reportedly stabbed a short time after the incident began and required emergency surgery as a result.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the jury found one of the accused, Jerrell Whitlock, not guilty of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, attempted robbery and conspiracy. He was, however convicted of fleeing from police. The jury also found the two other accused men, Michael Paranay and Dquay Means not guilty of aggravated assault, attempted robbery and conspiracy.
