Waiters and waitresses, beware Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams.

Williams is defending his 75-cent tip on his $128.25 bill at a Maryland pizzeria Sunday - a day before the Steelers played the Washington Redskins.

WUSA-TV reports that Williams ate dinner Sunday night at Ledo Restaurant in College Park. His server took to Facebook to complain and restaurant workers blasted Williams on social media.

But Williams defended his actions on Twitter, saying he and his party got lousy service. He says he waited for an hour and a half for his food and his order was wrong.

Two days later, Williams seemed to lighten up when comedian Gary Owen offered to bet him dinner over the outcome of next Sunday's game with the Bengals in Pittsburgh.
