Steelers' Santonio Holmes charged with domestic violence

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes was charged with domestic violence early Monday, 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 Tuesday morning.

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

A message left for the Steelers by the Associated Press was not immediately returned.

It was Holmes' second arrest since being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. He was arrested in South Beach, Fla., for disorderly conduct during a Memorial Day weekend crackdown by local authorities.

Steelers coach Bill Cowher criticized Holmes the following week, but said he wouldn't hold the incident against the former Ohio State receiver.

"Whatever he did wrong, I don't think he handled it properly," Cowher said then. "I think he'll learn from it and understand the scrutiny he's under. We have not talked face to face about it. I don't have any long-term concerns."

I believe every word of it Chin. Maybe the translation is "I don't have any long-term concerns regarding out 4th string WR".

Damn - now this really muddies the waters for me - I'm not sure who to pick in my prison league, Holmes or Henry!

Sheds new light on whether or not he really didnt do anything to get himself in trouble in Miami or not. Makes you wonder if we should believe him when he says he was just walking around a big group of people or not.

Isn't that the same Cowher quote from the first arrest?

Yes, it was.

I guess the Steelers were due for a first round bust.

The worse thing is that they traded out another first-day draft choice in order to get in a position to acquire Holmes.
