Steelers tackle Barrett Brooks was arrested early Sunday after police said he fled from them on motorcycle.

The 34-year-old offensive lineman was charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, driving at an unsafe speed and other traffic violations. He was taken to Allegheny County Jail, police Sgt. Dennis Washington said.

Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said he was aware of the arrest but did not have any further information.

The arrest occurred shortly before 2:30 a.m. on the city’s South Side when Brooks allegedly drove recklessly around a police car, prompting officers to try to pull him over, Washington said. Brooks did not stop and officers gave chase for about five minutes, he said. Brooks rode through a red light and a stop sign, Washington said.
