Chickillo has been charged with simple assault, criminal mischief and harassment. A source told WTAE that the incident involved Chickillo’s girlfriend, so it’s a domestic violence issue. A Steelers spokesperson told the news channel “we are aware of an incident involving Anthony Chickillo last night and are still gathering information.

It’s possible Chickillo will be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list since it’s a domestic violence incident, and he could be slapped with a minimum six-game ban if the league’s investigation finds him at fault. Chickillo was originally drafted by Pittsburgh in the sixth-round back in 2015. After playing out his rookie deal, he signed a two-year, $8MM deal to remain with the team this past March.

Last season Chickillo played around 28 percent of the team’s defensive snaps while also being a core special teamer. He missed three games earlier this year with a foot injury, returning for their Week 6 win over the Chargers and notching a half-sack. We’ll keep you posted when we hear more on the situation.
