Pittsburgh Steelers second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett had his car stolen while conducting an interview with a Pittsburgh radio station this week.
Pickett was at a local Chevrolet dealership in the Pittsburgh suburb of Monroeville for an interview Wednesday with 93.7 The Fan, according to WPXI.
Shortly after the 24-year-old quarterback discovered his 2023 Genesis SUV was missing, police reviewed security footage as they searched for the vehicle. Authorities eventually recovered the car and arrested 60-year-old Christopher Carter in connection with the theft.

Carter was charged with theft for illegally taking and receiving stolen property.
Both acts are considered felonies in Pennsylvania. Carter also faces a misdemeanor charge for unauthorized use of a car.
WPXI also reported that Pickett’s Steelers playbook was in the vehicle when it was taken away, but was returned to him when the car was recovered.
Multiple scratches could be seen on the SUV after it was returned.
