Santonio Holmes, NFL Lightning Rod, Removed from Plane; Didn't Want to Turn off iPod, Say Cops
Officials removed the football player from the plane around 9 p.m. due to his alleged disruptive behavior. After he talked with officials he said he understood and they let him back on the plane, says CBS affiliate KDKA.
Earlier in April, the Steelers traded Holmes to the Jets after the NFL suspended him for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
A civil lawsuit filed in Florida by Anshonoe Mills alleges that
Holmes threw a liquor- filled glass at her face, cutting her just above
the eye, after she refused to give up her seat in the VIP section of an
Orlando nightclub on March 7. That case is still pending.
Holmes attended Ohio State University. He left a year early and was taken in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft.
