The longtime NFL agent Leigh Steinberg was arrested last week on suspicion of being drunk in public.  Police say they got a report about a man “screaming and attempting to climb a hill” at about 8:00 p.m. on October 22, and the officers who responded to the call arrested Steinberg. Police say they smelled alcohol and Steinberg’s speech was slurred, but he was not in possession of alcohol at the time.
Steinberg was released on his own recognizance pending a December 8 court hearing, the Associated Press reports. His previous run-ins with the law include drunk driving arrests in 1997 and 2007.
With clients including Troy Aikman, Steve Young and Drew Bledsoe, Steinberg was one of the most influential agents in the NFL in the 1990s.


  1. Who calls the police on somebody “screaming and attempting to climb a hill”? Who would think, “That guy’s climbing a hill! We should call the police!” ? Geez, people are uptight..

  2. “If it’s wrong to be drunk in public, tonight I don’t wanna be right”
    Slow Joe – that’s classic!!! Enjoy!

  3. Leigh Steinberg arrested…yet again…on a booze charge…I’m so NOT suprised.
    I just thought after the last two booze arrests, he would get a driver, but I’m not sure where you
    get a driver to run up a hill for you.
    The only thing better than this arrest would be Scott Boras arrested
    on a sodomy charge. Because after all these years, well, you’ve all seen what he’s done
    to his clients and their employers.

  4. You guys stole my thunder.
    Climbing a hill is a beef?
    I could be on death row if climbing a hill drunk was a crime.

  5. damn….can’t a drunk man climb a hill? It was the patriot act assuming he was a terrorist I’m sure… They probably made his ramblings out to be “dirka dirka jihad!”
    Honestly who calls the police on a man climbing a hill?

  6. cops out of control
    about a month ago they arrested rb danny ware of giants for being a pedestrian under the influence in a crosswalk

  7. They took our ability to climb a hill…and I said nothing…
    Seriously, I didn’t know being drunk in public was against the law.

  8. A hill? Really? Are we sure it wasn’t Mount Everest? Someone called the cops on a man climbing the hill…?
    Glad I don’t live there…

  9. “Show me the MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!”
    ” I love black peopllllllllllleeeeeeeee!!!!!!!”

  10. I hope they throw his hill climbing butt in jail. I’m a proud member of MAD AS HEC! (Mother’s Against Drunk Agent Steinberg Hill Expedition Climbing) and I’m not going to put up with this anymore. It’s dangerous and it threatens our children!
    Go on Leigh! Get Tore Up on Halloween and Climb that Hill!
    Defy Authority and roll around in the meadow drunk off your ass for Thanksgiving!

  11. The only reason he drinks is so he can talk to his clients Troy always sounds like he has had a few of course Troy had a few to many hits to the head
    Ricky Williams well need I say more
    I would drink too if I had to deal with the brain dead clients he has to talk to all day long

    What, no Ricky Williams comments? Steinberg is Wiliams’ agent.
    He was climbing the hill to get to Ricky’s outdoor “garden”.
