Trial begins in alleged attack on Steelers’ Adams

Court-generic4

PITTSBURGH (AP) – A trial is underway for three men charged in the stabbing and attempted carjacking of Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Mike Adams.

The trial began Tuesday in Pittsburgh for 26-year-old Michael Paranay, 26-year-old Dquay Means and 27-year-old Jerrell Whitlock. They’re facing charges ranging from conspiracy to attempted homicide.

Prosecutor Christopher Stone said in his opening statements Tuesday that the defendants “saw an opportunity to steal a nice truck” and they took it.

Lawyers for the three men claim Adams lied about the details of the incident.

The Steelers drafted the 6-foot-7, 325-pound Adams in the second round in 2012 out of Ohio State.
