A fire alarm got pulled at the hotel where the Pittsburgh Steelers are staying at about 3 a.m. this morning. The Steelers were not among those who were forced to exit the building. Police told FOX25 he was found walking on the hotel property and had activated the pull alarm.

Police charged the 25-year-old man with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and pulling a false fire alarm. The Steelers were not evacuated from the hotel, though many were awakened, according to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

How about fire alarms going off at the team hotel at 3AM before game day?

ESPN reports that Dennis Harrison, 25, of East Boston, pulled the alarm then fled into a vehicle where two people were waiting for him.

Fans pulling fire alarms in an attempt to disrupt a team's sleep happens from time to time in sports.

The Patriots and Steelers will meet at Gillette Stadium in the AFC championship Sunday night at 6:40 p.m.

The man pulled an alarm in a stairwell near the exit of the hotel and jumped into a waiting vehicle with two other men, ESPN reported.
