'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A Pittsburgh judge has dismissed disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges against Steelers kicker Jeff Reed.

Reed had been charged after an October 2009 confrontation with police outside of a bar. Judge Richard King dropped two charges against Reed in March and told Reed he would also dismiss the remaining two charges if Reed completed community service.

Reed performed community service with the Salvation Army. The judge dismissed the charges today.

Reed's attorney did not immediately return a call for comment Monday.

The charges marked the second time in 2009 that Reed had a run-in with the law. He paid fines and restitution after pleading guilty last year to damaging a paper towel dispenser in a Pittsburgh-area convenience store bathroom just weeks after the Steelers won the Super Bowl.
