PITTSBURGH — Police say a woman who helped her boyfriend elude arrest after the stabbing last year of a Pittsburgh Steelers player has been arrested for threatening to kill probation officers.

The Tribune-Review reports (http://bit.ly/1uAwcWl ) Precious Gethers was charged with aggravated assault, making terroristic threats and public drunkenness Monday after police say she arrived to a probation office drunk, kicked an officer and said she'd "kill them all."

The 26-year-old Gethers was sentenced in March to 18 months of probation for helping 28-year-old Jerrell Whitlock avoid arrest in connection with the June 2013 stabbing of Steelers lineman Mike Adams.

Whitlock was acquitted on the highest stabbing-related charge. He's serving 18-to-36 months in prison for escaping to Florida with Gethers and their child.

Online court records did not list a lawyer for Gethers.
