According to a report by Livesteez, Pittsburgh Steeler’s WR Santonio Holmes was busted for possession of marijuana.
Pittsburgh Steeler receiver Santonio Holmes will be charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession after a traffic stop in which police smelled burning marijuana and found marijuana-filled cigars in his car. He’s going to be summoned,” said police Sgt. R. Griffith, meaning Holmes was not arrested after the incident Thursday, but will receive notice of the charge in the mail. The charge, possession of a small amount of marijuana, is punishable by up to a year in jail but probation or a fine is common in most cases. Police said the 24-year-old Holmes acknowledged having marijuana when stopped and pointed out the blunts to officers. “We’re aware of what happened and are still gathering information at this time and will not comment,” Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said Friday. Holmes and his agent have yet to release a comment, reports the Associated Press. The third-year player didn’t have his license when police stopped him around 4 p.m. near Mellon Arena, the home of hockey’s Pittsburgh Penguins.
