Lots of drama in the sports world this week! After current Steelers star Hines Ward was mistakenly arrested just last week, Former Pittsburgh Steelers star QB, Kordell Stewart, was arrested yesterday in Alpharetta, Georgia. We’ve got the deets on the baller turned ESPN analyst, plus a former NBA baller who was found dead in his Puerto Rican home, when you read on….
Kordell Stewart, who played QB for the Steelers for 8 years and was in the league for 11 years total, was arrested yesterday Wednesday afternoon and detained 1 hour and 45 mins. The New Orleans native, who now is one of ESPN’s top NFL analysts, was unknowingly driving with suspended license due to an out dated traffic ticket.
His publicist sent over a statement saying, “The arrest has opened Kordell’s eyes about staying on top of his automobile issues with a closer eye.”
Kordell was leaving his mansion he’s currently having built with his fiance, Porsha Williams (above), when he was arrested. On a sidenote, he and Porsha are set to marry May 21st, 2011 at the St. Regis in Buckhead, Atlanta. What a way to kick off your pre-wedding week.
In other sports news, Lebron James’ former Cav teammate, Robert “Tractor” Traylor, was found dead in his Puerto Rican home this week. Lebron James tweeted:
Traylor was talking with his wife on Skype on Tuesday night when the communication suddenly cut out. She tried to contact him several times, but couldn’t reach him. Apartment maintenance staff forced his door open and found Traylor lying on the floor.
A team staff member said there was no signs of violence or any injury.
Other reports say signs are pointing to a heart attack, as he has had heart problems in the past. So sad.
