Steelers’ Kenny Pickett’s car stolen amid radio interview
Pittsburgh Steelers second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett had his car stolen while conducting an interview with a Pittsburgh radio station this week.
Pickett was at a local Chevrolet dealership in the Pittsburgh suburb of Monroeville for an interview Wednesday with 93.7 The Fan, according to WPXI.
Shortly after the 24-year-old quarterback discovered his 2023 Genesis SUV was missing, police reviewed security footage as they searched for the vehicle.
Authorities eventually recovered the car and arrested Christopher Carter, 60, in connection with the theft.
Police said the car was outside Carter’s home after officers responded to a call about a domestic incident at the address.
Carter was charged with theft by unlawful taking and receiving of stolen property.
Both acts are considered felonies in Pennsylvania. Carter also faces a misdemeanor for unauthorized use of an automobile.
WPXI also reported that Pickett’s Steelers playbook was in the vehicle when it was taken, but was returned to him when the car was recovered.
Several scratches could be seen on the SUV after it was returned.
The Steelers selected Pickett with the 20th overall pick last year. He threw for 2,404 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games during his rookie season.
Pickett played college football at the University of Pittsburgh.
