The jury has found the three men accused of stabbing and assaulting Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Mike Adams last year on Pittsburgh’s South Side not guilty. The jury began deliberations this morning. Dquay Means, Jerrell Whitlock and Michael Paranay were charged in the attack. The three men were found not guilty on all charges except Means was found guilty of escape and Whitlock was convicted of flight to avoid apprehension. Prosecutors say Adams was stabbed during an attempted carjacking. But, the defense says Adams knocked food out of Paranay’s hands. Defense attorneys also claim Adams was drunk at the time of the incident. This afternoon, Means’ mother was arrested by sheriff’s deputies because of an outstanding warrant. There’s no word yet on what charges she faces.
