Ex-NFL quarterback Mike Tomczak arrested in domestic dispute

Former NFL quarterback Mike Tomczak was arrested today and charged with two counts of simple assault, police told WPXI in Pittsburgh.

The station quotes Bell Acres, Pennsylvania, Police Chief Brian Brown saying, “Mike lunged at his wife, grabbed her and stepped on her foot.”

Tomczak was arraigned and released on his own recognizance.

Tomczak played for the Bears from 1985 to 1990, for the Browns in 1991, for the Packers in 1992 and for the Steelers from 1993 to 1999.

  1. Lunged at her, grabbed her, and then……… stepped on her foot????
    Should’ve pinched her.

  2. I’m not a proponent of any form of domestic violence… but stepping on her foot? That’s a bit ridiculous… there has to be more to this than that!?

  3. Hasn’t been a very good few days for obscure ex-QB’s. First Pastorini, now Tomczak. Who’s next? Randy Wright? Mark Malone? Richard Todd?

  4. Wow, he’s lucky he is still not with the Steelers or they would have threatned to trade him and spanked his bottom!

  5. Does anybody know where I can find a Tomczak jersey? Not because I condone his actions, but moreso because I think he is the most garbage QB to ever start in an AFC Championship game.
    Sweet haircut, Florio.

  6. That’s it, Tomczak. You are no longer my 7th favorite all-time Steeler qb. You’re still way ahead of Ben and Bradshaw, but you’ve now fallen below Bubby Brister. Kordell and Kruczek have left you in their dust.
    Don’t step on the woman’s toes!

  7. Who cares?? Go find something that is newsworthy. With all that is happening in football with the draft and all why are you wasting our time with this drivel????

  8. Just waiting for Tommy Maddox to beat his kids and Kordell Stewart to shove a bottle of IC Light up his boyfriends ass.
    Those Pittsburgh QB’s…a pretty classy bunch!

  9. Grabbing how..By the arm or something? And lunging? lol for real? Youre gonna get youre husband arrested over that? Sheesh, he shoulda just went ahead and smacked the bitch and tell her to get back in the kitchen

  10. Another punk Steelers Quarterback that assaults women.
    She Said NO! She Said No ! She Said No !
    Damn Mike, you didnt have to pull a roethleberger on her.

  11. Stepped on her foot? He’s got a long ways to go to meet the NFL’s standards for wife beating.

  12. Like another Steeler QB, this too was consensual. A consensual ass-kicking is ok if it is between two adults and they both……………………….. If I were a woman who lived in Terry Bradshaw’s neighborhood I would be very afraid right now.

  13. I’m guessing Florio is going to somehow connect this to Roethlisberger and the Steelers

  14. Most of the idiots on PFT will probably comment with… “It was Roethlisberger’s fault”

  15. *insert anti-Roethlisberger comment here _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________*

  16. Thank god the Fins are finally off the turd watch list, while the Steelers are rewriting it!!!

  17. Go Steelers! Another winner for the burgh. So which steeler QB is going to make the news next? Kordell? Maybe he will beat up his boyfriend.

  18. Stepped on his wife’s foot? Dear lord it’s a miracle that I havent been arrested at every wedding I have ever attended – including my own!

  19. Serial rapist!
    Serial rapist!!
    There, I just saved all the dimwits the time and trouble…

  20. STOP THE MADNESS!!!
    If GODell does not suspend him for a full season I will never – I say NEVER watch another NFL game…
    And once again – a whitey gets of light – if this had been a brother he would have been castrated by now!!!!!

  21. Charlie: What are you writing?… What the f*** is this? “Serious Injury List”? *Serious* injury list? Are you f****** kidding me?
    Raymond: Number eighteen in 1988, Charlie Babbitt squeezed and pulled and hurt my neck in 1988.
    Charlie: Squeezed and pulled and hurt your neck in 1988?

  22. What’s the deal with all these Pittsburgh QB’s being a bunch of ass holes?
    Terry Bradshaw must be rolling over in his grave!!

  23. “Mike lunged at his wife, grabbed her and stepped on her foot.”
    ==========================================
    Hmmm, I’m think he was just about to hit her, caught himself, and stepped on her foot.
    So then, I’m thinking the assault comes from stepping on her foot, because “lunging at her” and “grabbing her” aren’t assault.
    Right?

  24. when it comes down to it ….. is stepping on the foot – Domestic Abuse?
    honestly, how many times do husband/wife have an argument and someone grabs someone?
    now to cross the line is to slap, poke, throw etc…. but honestly – I stepped on her foot officer….
    did he step on it and then smash his foot into it in an attempt to break bones?

  25. SO HE WENT TO JAIL FOR STEPPING ON HER FOOT? wtf im a ravens fan and I think thats dumb!!

  26. Really? There is such a term as “simple assault”?
    Nothing sounds simple about it. Too bad she didn’t know Krav Maga. She could’ve kicked his ass!
    Queue those who will now point out how the last team he played for was the Steelers! LOL

  27. More Steelers trash making a name for himself. What is it about Shitsburgh that turns these losers out?

  28. MDS is taking Florio classes………..
    If it would have been a “former Bengal” it would have been in the HEADLINE. You guys are worse than political hacks.
    Oh, and you pretty much are….worse

  29. She must have laughed at him for his “epic fail” style of reporting at the Ohio State Spring Game on Saturday. It was so bad that Columbus Radio personalities were apologizing for it’s atrociousness.

    “What’s the deal with all these Pittsburgh QB’s being a bunch of ass holes?”
    They can’t all be Tom Bradys, abandoning his bastard kids all over the country.

  31. I know… He went after the little piggy that went to market and spent to damn much of his money.

    Ironically, they ALL seem to have one thing in common.
    They were all products of Ohio long before they ever came to Pittsburgh.
    You know, like you.

  33. I guess everyone missed the part about him playing for Chicago, Cleveland and Green Bay for a longer period of time than he played for Pittsburgh. He’s the ultimate Brownbearsteeelerpacker. Those guys are the worst. Those violent Brownbearsteelerpackers. I cannot believe that Browns, Bears and Packers fans would come to his defense. They must be ashamed of him representing their cities.
    Go ahead and miss the sarcasm, too. Why the hell not?

  34. …well he was a Steeler wasn’t he??? Just one more piece of crap to throw on the crap pile that is the Pittsburgh Steelers!

  35. It’s a sad commentary on Dan Hampton and all Chicago sports fans how quickly they turned on Jim McMahon. Super Bowl Champion quarterback, albeit a bit injury-proned, benched in favor of Ditka’s new boy, Mike Tomczak. For those of you who don’t know who Mike Tomczak is, well, he’s nobody.
    And then there was Flutie…

  36. Tomczak must be paying the piper for his incredible fortune in the NFL. He was by far the least talented QB to have a 15 year career in the NFL. I still marvel that he pulled it off.

    Why do people say shit like this, but never say shit about Cromartie or Travis Henry? Are you all holding the white QB to a higher standard than some black player? Please.

  38. OMG….so much potential for humour and not one laugh.
    Stale comments and stupid observations….typical blogs on this site.

  39. I will assume the police have more than a stepped upon foot before they proceeded with these charges. Let’s hear all the facts before we lump Tomczak in with the rapist starting QB (if not for the suspension) of the Steelers.

    1 kid whom he didn’t abandon, he still visits and spends time with. Nice try though.

  41. Stepped on her foot? Oh no!
    Gotta love the haters who call Ben a rapist yet he’s never been found guilty, charged, or even arrested for that crime. Anyone who’s been to college knows it’s drunk guilt sex.
    LOSERS.

    her.”
    You know, your gut-wrenching grief over losing SB XL is really starting to get the best of you.
    At some point you’re going to have to accept this, let it go and move on.
    Otherwise, may I suggest that maybe you could take a page out of the Patsies fans playbook and start your own online petition.
    LMMFAO

  43. doesnt suprise me… shes runs around the city with 20 different guys and the women she hangs out with are worse from the wanna be rich town of sewickley hahahaha low lifes

  44. Next thing we know we’ll hear that Terry Bradshaw punched out his mother and Dennis Dixon back slapped his girlfriend .
    The Rooney’s really know how to breed them in Pittsburgh.
    Maybe its because all the women in Pittsburgh are missing teeth and look like men and when the Steelers get out of the city and see some real women they dont know how to act.

    Oh man! The italics on the word “you” *really* drove this home! You destroyed me! BWAAAA HA HA HA HA… I can just see the Grinch-like way your lip curled into a little smile as you typed it, thinking “heh heh, I’m about to own this clown…” ..but I always laugh at the posts where a Steeler fan thinks they’ve “owned” me, ’cause, like all of them, that shit was weak. Sorry. Weak.

  46. @ECS: “Good news for Steeler fans… at least he didn’t rape her.”
    GO STEELERS!!”
    I KNEW you’d come around, just like the Seahawks, if you can’t beat em, JOIN EM.

    Better to set sick animals on fire 36West? Better to attach electrodes to the scrotums of sick animals & shock them to death, right 36West? Or Drown them, or hang them as they scream in pain. Much, much more honorable…
    Better to change your name to Ron Mexico & infect unknowing women with VD. That’s much better behavior.
    Maybe the Steelers can bring him back & vote him the winner of the Ed Block courage award.
    Seems Jeff Laurie & Andy Reid know how to breed them & sign them in Philly too.
    It is funny how some want to jump on others when their house was/is a bigger mess…

  48. What is up with these Steelers QBs? At least Big Ben didn’t step on any woman’s foot, then he would have been arrested for sure.

  49. Eminem’s song lyrics include, “I’d rather turn this club into a bar room brawl. Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall.”

  50. T-Sack was a decent option for a game or two when needed.
    He’s really a Chicago boy though, even got a Super Bowl ring out of them! Dang that’s a long time ago.
