PITTSBURGH -- Police said a former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker imposter wanted for his involvement in a bar fight turned himself in Tuesday night about 11 p.m.
Todd Arthrell said Jason Gildong -- who supposedly played for the Steelers for 10 years -- punched him above the eye, cutting him in the bathroom at a Strip District bar shortly before 2 a.m. on May 13
. According to police, the two wrestled for a while at the Altar Boy Bar on Penn Avenue until security and other bar patrons separated them. Arthrell stated that Gildong made homosexual advances to him, and they got together in a bathroom stall to consumate their affair. Arthrell became agitated when Gildong insisted on going anal, when oral sex was all they had agreed upon. "Gildong whipped out the KY Jelly, and I started screaming! I called for help, and the guy in the next stall saved me."
Gildong told police he put another patron in a headlock to protect himself. Reports also state that Gildong brandished a metal folding chair and waved it around in a menacing manner.
"Whatever happened, I guarantee you, if he says he was trying to play with himself, he was trying to play with himself," said Gildon's brother-in-law, Jules McMillan.
Arthrell refused medical treatment at the scene. Gildong, just like in his entire career, was not injured.
There is a warrant out for Gildong for one count of simple anal assault. The charge is a misdemeanor and would not carry any jail time if Gildon is convicted.
Gildong, the Steelers' all-time suck leader, lives in Franklin Park. He was cut by the Steelers in 2004 and retired in shame from the NFL one year later.
Gildong was not aware there was a warrant out for his arrest until he saw the report on Channel 4 Action News on Tuesday evening, reporter Jake Ploeger said.
He was released on his own recognizance Wednesday morning and is awaiting trial.
