Third suspect in Adams stabbing arrested in Florida

Earlier this week, there were reports that the third suspect in the stabbing of Steelers tackle Mike Adams was hiding out in Columbia County, Florida.

He’s not hiding out anymore. Jerrell Whitlock was arrested on Friday at a hotel in Alachua County, which borders Columbia County. Sgt. Ed Seifert of the Columbia County Sherrif’s Office said that Whitlock’s arrest came about because of the cooperation of the community.

“This capture was only possible because of tips called into Crime Stoppers of Columbia County,” Seifert said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “We cannot thank our community enough for their vigilance and willingness to get involved.”

Adams identified Whitlock as the man who stabbed him in the left side and stomach early on June 1 in Pittsburgh. Michael Paranay, who is accused of punching Adams in the face, and Dquay Means, who is accused of holding a gun on the Steeler, were previously arrested. Whitlock faces charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, attempted carjacking and conspiracy for his alleged involvement in the attack on Adams.

    If you’re gonna stab someone run from the police.. You gotta get a passport and go hide somewhere that won’t ship you back to the US. You don’t go hide in Florida, you big dummy. Hope he spends a long time in prison.

    I think a fitting punishment would be to allow Adams five minutes, alone, with each of the three accused. Let’s see how big and bad they are without weapons.

    They better hope they don’t end up in the PN pen. There are some bad dudes that are crazy Steeler fans.

    Hell, I feel like punching these dudes in the mouth, but wouldn’t, for fear of going to jail.

    We dont want any excuses from fans when we smack the Steelers on Monday Night 2nd week of the season…excuses such as… “well Adams isnt 100% so Geno was able to get to the QB ALL DAY” Take the loss like a man NO EXCUSES!

    In a related story, the Bengals just offered all three of them contracts.

    I new Ray Ray was going to have too much time after he retired. Does anybody think Lewis does that funky dance after he stabs somebody?

    @jwill007: why do you have to troll the Steeler site? Envious as hell of our team and whole organization I see.

    Glad to see suspects in one of these cases finally being brought to justice.

    Hopefully this sends a message to the other low-life’s out there not to try and take what they didn’t earn.

    Go Steelers!!

    B3NZOZ, they will all be out in 10 years or less. At that point, all of them completely unemployable, they can resume their lives of crime. Isn’t it great sharing oxygen with parasites like this? Nice work law enforcement in apprehending this idiots.
