Ummm... That's the Wrong Guy

WPXI in Pittsburgh reported on a Pittsburgh Steeler that was involved in a traffic accident and altercation.

There was just one small problem.

This is the story WPXI aired on their newscast.

And this is the tweet (since deleted) that WPXI sent out on their Twitter. 

It seems that while WPXI reported Pittsburgh Steeler player Jacoby Jones that was involved in the incident. It was former Steeler Chukky Okobi (pictured). 

I mean...Jones, Okobi the names are almost exactly the same, so you can see how the station made the mistake?

OK....maybe you can't.

Anyway, WPXI posted a correction and are blaming the cops for the mistake.

"Earlier we reported that Steelers player Jacoby Jones was under investigation for an alleged confrontation with a driver after the minor accident on Penn Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh Thursday evening at about 6 p.m.

We checked with Pittsburgh police on the case – and a spokesperson said a “Pittsburgh Steeler by that name” was involved.  Now, we’ve learned the driver in that case was a former Steelers player – Chukky Okobi."
