Tyrone Carter’s Brother Skips Jail for the Super Bowl

Tank Carter, brother of Steeler Tyrone Carter, skips jail for the Super Bowl.

While I cannot agree that this was a good thing, I have to admit, part of me understands. If my brother were ever in anything like this, I’d skip jail too. The crime was minor, so I guess they didn’t try to find him. I mean, it took them over a month to figure out he was gone, and where he was? Either they weren’t trying too hard to find him, or Broward County is unbelievably incompetent.

He was to report to a Broward County prison on Jan. 6, but decided against it when his brother told him the Steelers had a good chance of going to the Super Bowl.

Tank had to be happy Tyrone was right. Had they lost the next weekend in the NFL playoffs, and Tank Carter got five years, I can imagine him saying, “I skipped jail for THIS?”

Glad he doesn’t regret the fact that he’s staying in jail ten times longer than he would have originally stayed. Tank had better hope the Steelers don’t go on a Super Bowl run here, because there will be no more partying with Snoop Dog at the Super Bowl for Carter for the next five years.
