Following the arrest of two Pittsburgh Steelers players who were caught in possession of marijuana, the events of that night have been further divulged.

The two Runningbacks, Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were caught on Wednesday night with Bell considered to be under the influence.

As per the police report, Bell admitted that he had smoked the drug "a minute ago" before clarifying that it had been two hours prior that they had smoked it.

The story gets funny for anyone who is not a Steelers fan however as details have come out of Bell's most comical quote from the night.

As Bell was the one driving, he was informed that he could be handed a DUI and his response was sheer comedy.

Bell responded with: "I didn't know you could get a DUI for being high."

He continued by claiming "I smoked two hours ago. I'm not high anymore. I'm perfectly fine. Why would I be getting high if I had to make it to my game?"

There has been a big outcry from the incident and it is unclear how the Steelers organization will be handling the two players or if the NFL will also hand down a punishment.

Not a good time for the Steelers

From the incident including Blount and Bell, to the final whistle in their game with the Philadelphia Eagles, its safe to say the Steelers have had a horrid week.

Despite their arrest, Blount and Bell flew with the team to Philadelphia and played in their third pre-season game.

Pittsburgh fell to the Eagles 31-21 after going the first half without scoring a single point going in 17-0 down.

Neither Blount or Bell could run in a touchdown for the Steelers with Blount rushing for the most yards with just 32.

Bell ran for 23 yards from nine carries on a very disappointing night for the Steelers who are now 1-2 in pre-season.
