The three men accused of attacking and stabbing Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Mike Adams were in court today and all were ordered to stand trial, according to Liz Navratil of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.Adams was also present for the preliminary hearing to give his account of what happened early on the morning of June 1st on the South Side that ended with him needing to undergo emergency surgery for a lacerated colon following the attempted car jacking of his truck.According to WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh, Adams testified he had just gotten out of his truck after eating a sandwich when the three accused men, Jarrell Whitlock, Dquay Means and Michael C. Paranay, approached him and told him to give up his vehicle. Adams went on to say Paranay jumped on the floor board of his truck while Means brandished a handgun. And Adams said he heard Whitlock say, "Let me kill him."Adams said a few seconds later that Paranay punched him in the face from behind, and that's when Whitlock stabbed him.Each of the accused is represented by a different attorney and Paranay's attorney, Randall McKinney, told the court that he questions the credibility of Adams, because he gave a different version of what happened and isn't telling the whole truth."The story Mr. Adams told today is inaccurate. He actually instigated this incident," said McKinney, who declined to give further details per the report.According to Navratil, all three of the accused will now stand trial after failing to get the attempted homicide charges dropped against them. Adams did not talk to the media following the hearing.Apparently, there were some witnesses who saw the incident happen and the defense attorneys will now attempt to question them. In the video below, two of the defense attorneys are featured talking to the media following the hearing.Needless to say, the trial should be pretty interesting once it takes place. Adams has been rehabbing since being released from the hospital, and the hope is that he will be able to practice once training camp begins at the end of next week. Should Adams still need to work on getting himself back in football shape, the Steelers will simply just place him on the Active PUIP list until he is ready.Attorney Accuses Steelers T Mike Adams Of Instigating Stabbing Incident is a post from: Steelers Depot
