Steelers outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo was arrested early Sunday morning for an alleged dispute with his girlfriend outside of Uniontown, Pennsylvania.

Chickillo was drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 draft out of the University of Miami. This past off-season, Chickillo signed a new two-year contract worth $8 million.

After missing three games with a foot injury, Chickillo returned to the Steelers for their Week 6 victory against the Chargers in which he had 0.5 sacks and one tackle.

While the Steelers have acknowledged they are aware of the incident, they are not commenting on the situation at this time.
