Default Santonio Holmes charged with domestic violence

Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes was charged with domestic violence early today, police said.

Holmes was arrested at an apartment just after midnight and taken to Franklin County Jail, Sgt. Loucious Hollis said. He is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow morning.

Hollis confirmed the domestic violence charge against Holmes, but declined to say who made the complaint or provide details of the allegation

Uh-oh -may have a real problem with this guy. South Beach may have just been a crowd control issue with the cops but domestic violence is serious business

First arrest for DC............I let it slide. Young, dumb and a very minor charge.

Second arrest for domestic violence......I'm starting to think this guy is a bum. That's if he did it.

Default Re: Santonio Holmes charged with domestic violence

I went on the record immediately on draft day saying that I didn't like the Steelers drafting Holmes.........after listening to the arguements of what this guy could do for the Steelers I warmed up to his selection.
Well, after two arrests and this is before he's ever put on a Steeler uniform, I'm going back to my gut feeling opinion that this guy is a bust/wasted draft pick.

The only thing good about this whole deal is that he's killing his negotiations for his contract.

As a Duke alum, I am a bit more cynical about charges of sexual assault and domestic violence than I was prior to what now appear to be bogus charges being brought against the lacrosse players. I do not know if something illegal did or did not happen, but I now wait for facts to be disclosed.

Howver, even if Holmes is clean on this he needs to figure out real quick that he needs to quit putting himself in situations where these types of incidents can occur.

As was the case with Ben and the motorcycle, this is where the player's agent needs to earn his pay by counseling a young man with far more money than sense to act responsibly.

Good post Atlanta Dan.

I want to hear more details before commenting. I'm sure Cowher's chin is in overdrive right about now.

however when holmes was arrested that last time we all know what cowhers comments were. The steelers dont like to have criminals on there team as we all know. We arent the bengals and the steeler model has been built as a very classy organization. What I recomend is giving holmes a very incentive based contract so if he does start turning into chris henry which he is only one arrest away then we wont take such a cap hit by cutting or trading him
