Outside linebackers coach and former Steelers player Joey Porter, however, ended his night with an arrest for an altercation with a police officer.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' outside linebackers coach was originally arrested and charged with simple and aggravated assault, trespassing and resting arrest after an incident outside of The Flats on Carson, a bar on Pittsburgh's South Side.
Porter, the Steelers announced Monday, is on leave "pending further review".
On Thursday, however, the office of the Allegheny County District Attorney's office reduced the charges to only disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
According to Ed Bouchette, the Steelers beat writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Porter is charged with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.

The source pointed out that some militants have opened fire on the policemen before the explosion. Police and security forces have since been the target of deadly attacks by Islamists in the area.
Mr. Del Greco said Porter "has in fact apologized for the fact that it was a distraction for the team" and "regrets all that and apologizes for that".
Officer Abel wrote in an arrest affidavit that Porter "lunged" at a doorman, lifted him up off the ground and at one point grabbed Officer Abel by the wrists. Pittinger said neither Porter's fame nor Abel's history will matter in the investigation. Porter then asked, "Did you hear what [the doorman] said to me?" I didn't do anything", or, "You're lying!
City police spokeswoman Sonya Toler had no comment on the prosecutor's decision.
The Steelers' Director of Communications, Burt Lauten, gave a statement Sunday night on Porter's arrest to ESPN's Josina Anderson.
Acting Pittsburgh police Chief Scott Schubert has said that he also reviewed footage of the encounter and supported Officer Abel's actions.
