I'm sure most of you have seen this already, but I didn't see it posted.


Steelers WR Holmes faces domestic violence charge

Associated Press



COLUMBUS, Ohio -- 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."


Mike & Mike had Cowher on this morning. He wouldn't comment on it, but sounded pretty perturbed when they asked him about it.
