    POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- The brother of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Tyrone Carter had his sentence for driving with a revoked license increased from six months to five years because he failed to report to jail on time.

    “ Even knowing what I know now, I would do it again. It was the greatest game in my life. ”
    — Tank Carter

    Tank Carter was scheduled to report to a Broward County prison on Jan. 6, but decided against it when his brother told him the Steelers had a good chance of going to the Super Bowl. On Tuesday, Broward Circuit Judge Stanton S. Kaplan increased the sentence.

    "Even knowing what I know now, I would do it again," Carter said. "It was the greatest game in my life."

    Carter watched the Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks from the 50-yard line in Detroit and partied with rapper Snoop Dogg after the game.

    The brothers have been close since growing up in a rough section of Pompano Beach.

    "I would have done the same thing," Tyrone Carter said of his brother's decision. Winning the Super Bowl meant "we finally made it together."

    5 years for driving on a revoked license? I can't see him serving the whole thing. Any lawyer would probably appeal this to get it knocked down.

    I don't blame him at all... I would probably do the same thing.
