Sheriff: no proof of misconduct by Steelers security boss

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jack Kearney serves many roles in his part-time job as chief of security for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The boss at his full-time job at the Allegheny County Sheriff's Dept. says cleaning up for players who run in to legal trouble is not one of them.

Allegheny County Sheriff William Mullen dismissed an ESPN report (http://es.pn/1y3VLk9) that suggested Kearney has used his influence to assist Steelers when they run afoul of the law.

The report, published Thursday, suggested Kearney - who is a lieutenant in charge of the fugitive squad - helped tackle Mike Adams put together a story for authorities following a late-night incident in a popular bar area in 2013 that left Adams with multiple stab wounds.
