Someone pulled a fire alarm at the Steelers' hotel hours before the AFC Championship Game


A prankster pulled a fire alarm at 3 a.m. at Boston's Logan Airport Hilton hotel where the Pittsburgh Steelers were staying Sunday morning.

It was a false alarm, but it forced an evacuation hours before the Steelers were set to take on the New England Patriots for the AFC Championship Game, CBS Pittsburgh reported.

CNN reports Boston's Dennis Harrison, 25, has been arrested and charged with disturbing the peace, setting off a false alarm and disorderly conduct. Police said there's evidence he meant to mess with the Steelers.

Hours later, a fire alarm reportedly went off at Gillette Stadium.

It didn't seem to affect the team. Or at least, not their GIF game.

The whole building was evacuated.

This has happened before, including to the Carolina Panthers in 2015.

We're pretty sure Pats coach Bill Belichick wasn't involved.

But Pats fans loved it.
