The legal problems for Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Mike Adams aren’t behind him just yet.
Alan Jennings of WPXI-TV reports Tuesday that one of the three men acquitted earlier this month of stabbing Adams during an altercation in South Side last summer has now filed a civil suit against the Steelers tackle.
Dquay Means is reportedly seeking damages for the emotional distress that he endured during his 11 months behind bars awaiting trial. Adams is being sued for malicious prosecution.
Even though Adams was stabbed during the incident, the jury ultimately decided that the altercation between all involved parties was not an attempted carjacking as Adams had claimed, but instead a result of an intoxicated Adams bumping into one of the three accused men, causing him to drop his food.
The report by Jennings does not state how much Means is looking for in the way of damages and we can probably expect the other two men that were acquitted to file civil suits in the near future as well.
