“We wouldn't expect a steelworker to be laid off or suspended without pay,” said Vogel. “I wouldn't expect a police officer, firefighter or a member of the Steelers.”

I thought the same thing. So the Pittsburgh PD would not suspend an officer if he was caught with weed???I feel much safer now.

So now the question is does Holmes get a suspension. Has he been in trouble before? Does he fit a similar profile to Kevin Faulk who got a one game suspension for getting nabbed with the hooch?

Don't know his standing with the NFL, but here are his past problems:Holmes was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida on May 27, 2006 for disorderly conduct. Charges were subsequently dropped after Holmes paid a fine.Holmes was arrested for a second time on June 18, 2006 for domestic violence and assault in Columbus, Ohio_On July 7, 2006, Holmes appeared in Franklin County Court in Columbus, Ohio for both a pre trial regarding the domestic case and hearing regarding the traffic ticket. He plead no contest to the traffic ticket and agreed to pay a fine. While Lashae Boone, the mother of Holmes' daughter and the victim in the assault case, requested that the domestic violence and assault charges be dropped, the prosecutor refused. Boone and their daughter accompanied Holmes to court. The charges were later dropped.

Steeler Santonio Holmes Accused Of Marijuana Possession

Drugs Found During Traffic Stop

Thursday, October 23, 2008 – updated: 10:52 pm EDT October 23, 2008

PITTSBURGH -- Police cited Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes on charges of marijuana possession Thursday afternoon.

Pittsburgh police said Holmes was driving a SUV with out-of-state license plates near Mellon Arena. The vehicle matched the description of one linked to a crime, so officers made an investigatory stop.

“When they pulled him over, they found there was a smell of burnt marijuana in the vehicle," said Sgt. James Vogel. “Mr. Holmes was very cooperative with officers and turned over some items to us and was subsequently summoned for those items...a couple of marijuana blunts.”

Police said Holmes turned over three marijuana cigars. Officers charged Holmes with one misdemeanor count of possession of a small amount of marijuana. Holmes was given a summons to court and released.

Vogel said Holmes was very cooperative, respectful and wasn’t impaired. He thinks that should be taken into account when it comes to any potential action taken against him by the Steelers and the NFL.

“We wouldn't expect a steelworker to be laid off or suspended without pay,” said Vogel. “I wouldn't expect a police officer, firefighter or a member of the Steelers.”

The Steelers did not have any comment.

The NFL policy for substance abuse says for a first violation, the NFL could fine and suspend a player without pay for up to four regular games or six games for a second violation.

 
I think its silly that everyone overreacts to weed so much, but I was more concerned with this: "Holmes was driving a SUV with out-of-state license plates near Mellon Arena. The vehicle matched the description of one linked to a crime."......whats that all about?

Hopefully it didn't match the description of a vehicle described in the Theft of a bag of Munchos.
 
HOLMES CITED FOR MARIJUANA POSSESSIONPosted by Mike Florio on October 23, 2008, 11:52 p.m.Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes, who ran afoul of the law twice not long after he was selected by the Steelers in round one of the 2006 draft, is in trouble again.On Thursday afternoon, Holmes was cited in Pittsburgh for possession of marijuana.His SUV was stopped because it matched the description of a vehicle that had been involved in a crime. Police then discovered the marijuana.“When they pulled him over, they found there was a smell of burnt marijuana in the vehicle,” said Sgt. James Vogel. “Mr. Holmes was very cooperative with officers and turned over some items to us and was subsequently summoned for those items . . . a couple of marijuana blunts.”Holmes wasn’t taken into custody, but he was given a summons to appear in court, and he was released.And while the authorities in Pittsburgh didn’t give Holmes a pass, Sgt. Vogel has gone to bat for him.“We wouldn’t expect a steelworker to be laid off or suspended without pay [for marijuana possession],” said Vogel. “I wouldn’t expect a police officer, firefighter or a member of the Steelers.”[Editor’s note: If/when my house is on fire, I hope that they dispatch the guys from the firehouse with the firefigthers who spend their down time smoking pot. They’ll be so much mellower while trying to save my life.]But Sgt. Vogel didn’t write the league’s rules for things of this nature. If Holmes is convicted of or pleads guilty to the charges, he’ll be subject to discipline under the substance-abuse policy. For a first offense, Holmes faces a maximum suspension of four games, without pay.Earlier this year, Pats running back Kevin Faulk was suspended for one game after admitting to marijuana possession.Technically, the Steelers aren’t permitted to discipline Holmes separately. And they likely won’t, given that Holmes is a key contributor. (See Harrison, James and Wilson, Cedrick.)
It's nice to see that the cop didn't arrest him and it sounds like he is pretty consistent with the hockey mom, Joe the Plumber, the Six Pack, the Quarterback etc. I know that PA marijuana laws are fairly strict (much more than Ohio) but no sense trying to ruin a man's career over a tiny bit of ganja.

Looks like we have two different versions of the story.

Steelers' Holmes arrested on drug chargesFriday, October 24, 2008By Sadie Gurman, Pittsburgh Post-GazetteSteelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes was arrested yesterday afternoon and will face marijuana possession charges, according to Night Court.Holmes, the Steelers' first-round pick in the 2006 draft, was arrested yesterday afternoon by Pittsburgh police, and will receive a court summons charging him with possession of a small amount of the drug.The details of his arrest were not immediately available.In June 2006, Holmes was arrested in Ohio on domestic violence charges, which were later dismissed. The charges stemmed from an incident involving LaShae Boone of Columbus, the mother of one of his three children. The charges were dismissed after the judge in the case was assured by Holmes' lawyers that their client was participating in ongoing counseling offered through the NFL.Holmes was also arrested in South Beach, Fla., for disorderly conduct during a Memorial Day weekend crackdown by local authorities in 2006.

No worries about the home town.Vogel just has Holmes on his fantasy team and is trying to plead with Goodell not to suspend him.
 
Can't say I'm shocked, but come on, how do these guys that make millions not control themselves with weed ? I don't smoke it, you know why? I get tested at work...what a moron.

 
No worries. Dallas needs a slot receiver.
LOl that give me a chuckle.Any thoughts if the Steelers will suspend him for Sunday's game vs Giants?
Tough call -- they might or they may just wait for the NFL suspension. In any case it amazes me how stupid NFL players are. You have an opportunity to make ridiculous amounts of money for a relatively short period of your life. Why screw it up for a few hours of getting high?Once you retire you can smoke your brains out...
 
What a busy week ...

My league hands out a $10 Fine for incidents like this ..arrests , suspensions, etc ...

C. Johnson , Matt Jones, Larry Johnson, Kellen Winslow and now Holmes have all been fined so far this week.

Keep it up fellas .. your making our transaction pot grow..!!!

Exactly and at the very least don't freaking drive around with it! Idiot.
