I was waiting for one of you to bring this up.
LOS ANGELES - Southern California backup quarterback Mark Sanchez was released from jail early Thursday following his arrest for investigation of sexually assaulting a female student, police said.
Sanchez, 19, was arrested around 4 p.m. at an apartment complex near campus. He was released shortly after midnight after posting $200,000 bail, sheriff’s deputy Ban Nguyen said.
Police took DNA and hair samples from Sanchez, the Los Angeles Daily News reported, citing unnamed sources.
Ben was never arrested or charged. Also, you seem to selectively forget that it wasn't the first time that Holmes was in trouble because of pot (while he was with the Steelers) and he also had the whole club incident in Florida the same offseason.
They weren't going to resign him after this season anyway, and knew he was getting a 4 game suspension...so the let him go.
