A city magistrate today dismissed remaining charges against Steelers kicker Jeff Reed, citing his completion of community service.
Reed had been charged with four counts stemming from an incident outside a North Shore bar in October.
Police said Mr. Reed interfered with them and tried to fight them when they tried to cite teammate Matt Spaeth for urinating in a parking lot.
Judge Richard King previously threw out resisting arrest and simple assault charges. He then gave the kicker six weeks to complete 40 hours of community service.

Judge King dismissed the remaining charges of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
