Dennis Harrison might want to think twice before he mixes drinking alcohol with his football fandom again.
Harrison was arraigned Monday in a Boston court on allegations of pulling the fire alarm early Sunday morning at the hotel in which the Pittsburgh Steelers were staying ahead of the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots.
Harrison’s attorney shocked no one when he claimed his client loves the Patriots and that alcohol might have contributed to any role he played in the false alarm.
What Harrison allegedly told state police after his arrest might one day become part of the Boston sports lexicon.
The 25-year-old pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and pulling a false fire alarm. The Boston Globe’s Christela Guerra reported Wednesday that Harrison’s defense will argue the drunken statements he made to police shouldn’t be used as evidence against him.
Harrison was released on his own recognizance, and he’ll return to court Feb. 13.
