PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu (tay-AH'-moo) apologized after a brief court appearance on charges related to an alleged drunken-driving rampage last month.
The 22-year-old fourth-round draft pick was arrested early Oct. 14 after crashing into several other cars, then running away from police on the city's South Side, a neighborhood known for bars and night clubs.
On Thursday, he waived his right to a preliminary hearing, at which he could have challenged the evidence against him. He'll be formally arraigned Dec. 31 on charges of aggravated assault by vehicle and fleeing police, among other counts.
After his brief Pittsburgh Municipal Court appearance Thursday, Ta'amu told reporters, "If there was any other word I would say it, but 'sorry' is the only word I can say right now."
