3rd arrest since 2006. Lets see if RG throws the book at him. Yea right. Goddell is a joke.
It's getting awful cozy on the "Goodell is a moron" train.
Jerry Jones will find a way to get this guy cheap.
More weed...Gee, there's none of that in professional sports
Once again... Don't draft known idiots. Just don't do it.
Glad we didn't take this moron when some people were saying we should.
He's a Steeler not a Cowboy this story will die Quick.
Police say Steelers' receiver Santonio Holmes had pot during stop
2 hours ago
PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes will be charged with misdemeanour marijuana possession after a traffic stop in which police smelled burning marijuana and found marijuana-filled cigars in his car.
"He's going to be summoned," said police Sgt. R. Griffith, meaning Holmes was not arrested after the incident Thursday, but will receive notice of the charge in the mail.
The charge, possession of a small amount of marijuana, is punishable by up to a year in jail but probation or a fine is common in most cases.
Police said the 24-year-old Holmes acknowledged having marijuana when stopped and pointed out the blunts to officers.
"We're aware of what happened and are still gathering information at this time and will not comment," Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said Friday. Holmes and his agent could not immediately be reached.
The third-year player didn't have his licence when police stopped him about 4 p.m. near Mellon Arena, the home of hockey's Pittsburgh Penguins.
Police stopped Holmes driving a dark sport-utility vehicle with out-of-state licence plates. Officers in the area had been alerted that a similar vehicle was believed to be carrying a large amount of drugs. Holmes' vehicle matched the description but was not the one police were seeking, Griffith said.
Holmes is second on the team behind Hines Ward with 22 catches for 360 yards and a touchdown. A first-round draft pick out of Ohio State in 2006, Holmes has 118 catches for 2,037 yards and 11 touchdowns, in his career with the Steelers.
Holmes has had two other run-ins with the law since the Steelers drafted him. In June 2006, he was charged with domestic violence in Columbus, Ohio. Those charges were dropped when the mother of one of his three children declined to help prosecute the case and prosecutors were assured that Holmes received anger management and domestic violence counselling through the NFL.
In May 2006, Holmes was arrested for disorderly conduct by police in Miami, who also later dropped the charges. Holmes is from Belle Glade, Fla.
:laugh2: , but we all know who should have been taken besides Barbie. for those who don't know he was the very next pick.
That bodes well for my fantasy team. Hopefully Ward will get more looks.
I hate the Steelers. :steelers:
Goood for me.
Goodell was on Mike & Mike this morning, preaching about being consistent in his punishing of players who break the conduct policy, and across the board...
Nice sig punk.
oh noes not marijuana
hang him out to dry!
Unfortunately with GM Jerry Sunshine we dont draft em, we just sign them when they are free agents.
Parcells put pacman in the undraftable box and dick vermeil said he talked to pacman at the combine and within five minutes he knew pacman had issues and wasnt for him.....
Yet we put him on a successful team and then the local media runs around declaring how great he is.
And yes GM Jerry Sunshine says this is all good for team chemistry. Who could argue.
Only if there is a STAR on the helmet.
I'm sure they weren't ready with examples of his lack of consistency. He's such a tool. I hate that guy.
Gracias. It feels right.
santonio is always doing something wrong and it gets covered up

Can you even imagine ESPN's daily coverage of this if this was the Cowboys ???
I'm pretty sure there was a story about S. Holmes and naked pics of him being on the internet, probably like a month or so ago. I believe I heard about it on a local radio show.
