Ex-Steeler sued by bouncer over injuries he suffered during a bar fight

According to the Associated Press, a bouncer from a Pittsburgh bar is suing former Steelers offensive lineman Chukky Okobi after suffering injuries during a brawl.  Okobi ended up getting fined $100 for his part.

Okobi was originally charged with five counts of simple assault after several people confronted him when he argued with his girlfriend at a South Side bar on Aug. 25. Okobi was fined after pleading guilty to a single harassment citation in April, which his attorney then called a “favorable outcome.”

The bouncer, Joseph Kania claims that he suffered a concussion when Okobi punched him and that the bar was at fault for continuing to serve him alcohol after he was clearly intoxicated.
