The Steelers had a rude, albeit brief, awakening on Sunday.
A fire alarm was pulled early Sunday morning at the Steelers’ team hotel in Boston, but the team downplayed the incident, saying none of the players or coaches had to evacuate their rooms.
Burt Lauten, the Steelers’ Director of Communications, told NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala that quiet was restored within minutes of the alarm sounding.
The fire alarm at the Hilton Boston Logan Airport Hotel was pulled at 3:40 a.m. EST. When firefighters arrived, they determined it was a false alarm and cleared the scene “pretty quickly.”
But the Massachusetts State Police have apprehended a 25-year-old Boston man who pulled the fire alarm, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. The man has been charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and pulling a false fire alarm.
