Police report coming on Santonio Holmes incident

In her lawsuit against Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes, Anshoenoe Mills alleges that the Orlando Police Department failed to prepare a formal police report after Mills complained to an officer that Holmes threw a drink that cut her under the eyebrow.

That could be changing.

OPD spokesperson Barbara Jones tells us that “the report has not been completed in the system,” which implies strongly that a report is coming.  Which implies strongly that the matter has not been closed.

We’ve separately learned that Holmes will contend that, while he was indeed present at the time of the incident, another person threw the drink at Mills.

Neither the Steelers nor Holmes have commented on the situation.

    DAMN PLAYERS FROM OHIO COLLEGES RUINING THE STEELERS REP. harrison, holmes, Ben.
    The real question, is what happens if the backups come in and we get another 04 season?
    Dixon, Ward, Wallace, El, and Mendy could still be a good offense if Dixon lives up to his potential and surprises the world like Ben did in 04. I realize it is a pipe dream. But stranger things have happened. I’d rather not have the off field thugs on the team.

    Maybe if he’s suspended, we won’t have to hear CBS second rate announcers continuously call him San Antonio Holmes, then never correct themselves, rather saying it over and over again.

  10. DB26 says: Mar 29, 2010 12:26 PM

    As easy as it is currently to wrap in some nice jabs at the Stoolers right now, I will do as another poster and poke more at their front office. While being a very solid core group that has built well for centuries, I find it amusing that in the recent span of allegations against the players that represent their franchise, they still contest that they hold themselves to a higher standard than their peers.
    If that is true, why do we hear of no imminent suspensions or cuts of these people defacing their company standards? Guilty of the allegations? Who knows….. What they are guilty of regardless is stupidity. Why continue to put yourself in situations that you know first hand how they can turn out?
    To simply sum up the current Steelers woes, the inmates are running the asylum. Cowher wasn’t drifting in an inflatable raft…. The Chin was captain of the cruise ship. Your choices as a passenger: Adhere to the Captains rules or you will quickly go overboard. With Tomlin…. Well, he definitely holds himself in high regard, but doesn’t back up his choice phrases with his actions. What is unfortunate for Steeler fans is that Tomlin’s recent remarks has really put the front office and himself in a bind. They are going to HAVE to make an example of someone…. And it won’t be the kicker!

    This franchise is quickly becoming a joke and its image is certainly a shell of what it used to be when Mr. Rooney was in charge.

    “why do we hear of no imminent suspensions or cuts of these people defacing their company standards?”
    I will answer your question with 2 words : criminal charges.
    Until there are none, there is no reason to suspend/cut/discipline anyone.

    “He proceeded to inform the plaintiff that he was an NFL football player and that he could not face criminal charges.
    Subsequently, defendant offered to give the plaintiff money because he was an NFL star and could not get into trouble.

    Surprise Surprise, Steelers are turning into the most thuggish organization in football.

    Great. He said/she said. At this point, I don’t care which way it goes … I just hope there are reliable witnesses, so the answers are definitive and the outcome is swift.

    I’m sure the police officer that night did not do a police report, “the report has not been completed in the system,” is just a way of trying to cover their a$$ until they can get one done after the fact!

    DB26,
    Well said. Tomlin has put himself in a spot where examples will need to be made. The sad part is when a star player is benched, it is more of a punishment for the teammates and fans than the actual player. When a scrub is benched it only hurts the scrub.

  24. 6goingon7 says: Mar 29, 2010 12:53 PM

    Oh c’mon!! Since when is throwing you’re hennesse on some hoodrat B!tch while ballin out of controll in the V.I.P. assault? He told that cheesey ho to get off his couch’s arm rest! Thats HIS armrest….not yours Ho! I was there….saw the whole thing! And that little cut on her face was her own damn fault. My man Santonio pushed her away by her face and threw his cognac on her, like any self respecting young baller would, and she LEANED INTO THE DAMN GLASS!!
    Shoot…I know she did because she told me she was gunna. Few minutes earlier, I had the SAME B!TCH up in the bathroom, tryin to give her a #7. You feel me? mmm…mmmm. These ho’s aint got no manners…
    Obviously a joke. Hey STARTERS…stay out of the DAMN clubs. Tough offseason….
    GO STEELERS

    Until there is a hearing and a player is found guilty in a court of law, these are just ALLEGATIONS. Shut your traps and get a life outside of commenting non-stop on PFT! Until there is a conviction, this is the case of another money-grubbing wh0re looking for a quick buck as far as I am concerned…

  30. danlinker says: Mar 29, 2010 1:01 PM

    It’s ok because he too has not yet been charged with anything right? I am loving this on a large scale level. This is hilarious.

    As a pittsburgh turd stuck in ohio, I think they just try to balance out the jerks crossing the boarders. We must have had a lot of them move to ohio to balance out these three. ha. I keep trying to move back, but the city won’t let me till one of them leaves. ha

    First off, no one knows at this point what happened but if some ahole tells me to leave without merit- I’m not leaving, no way, it is a free country after all.
    Secondly, you and Steeler-lady need to stop posting on here b/c you are only adding to the demise of the Steeler’s rep. Leave the posting to decent fans like Deb, etc. who seem to have some ability to be logical and not completely biased.

    I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed this but, it seems that every time some idiot posts one of these hit-n-run schoolyard insults they fail to mention who THEIR team is.
    And when challenged to do so, they run and hide.
    Why is that?

    Like they should have done with Burress, just sentence them to play for the Browns for 2 years.
    That’s far worse than prison.

  44. hairball says: Mar 29, 2010 2:00 PM

    I heard that although the person who threw the glass is still unsubstantiated, an examination of the girl’s face revealed the presence of Ben Roethlisberger’s DNA.

    hayward giapunchmi: It matters not whose NFL team posters on this site root for when the subject of the article is about yet another Steelers player having a run-in w. the law. Please tell me why the team they follow has anything to do w. Ben, Santonio, Harrison or any other number of Steelers players being written about due to their law-breaking behavior off the field. I’m sure it isn’t fun having ‘your’ team being cast in an unfavorable light for its many recent brushes w. the law but such is life when Steelers players break the law. Unless the Steelers front office starts holding players accountable (not just 2nd/3rd team players), I suspect we’ll see more of the same in the weeks and months to come.

Good job though, you’re the best at internetting in your moms basement, congratulations!

  51. Deb says: Mar 29, 2010 2:50 PM

    @Sourdough …
    In the Roethlisberger situation, if he’d been charged, tried, and convicted, it wouldn’t matter. We could all agree he was a heinous person, and team allegiance would be irrelevant. That isn’t the case. Strip away gossip, innuendo, and the repeated posting of material supplied by one unnamed source, and here’s what’s left:
    A single 26-year-old guy went to a Nevada golf tournament and had sex in a hotel room with a hotel employee a few years older than him. No one alleges alcohol was involved. A year later she claimed it was rape and sued for $3 million. All evidence presented so far refutes her story.
    A single guy celebrating his 28th birthday went bar-hopping with some friends and met up with students in their early 20s. A girl in the group later alleged he “sexually manipulated” her though no official has said how. The police say it wasn’t rape and there was no semen on her. A TV station quoted an unnamed source saying he “admitted” a consensual sex act/head injury. That story has never been confirmed.
    Based on this, there’s no reason to hold him accountable, suspend him, or shred his reputation. He has never been charged with a crime and no evidence has been presented that he has broken the law. Being an occasional jackass to fans isn’t illegal. So when people demand everything from suspension to counseling to jail, yeah, you can’t help wondering what ax they have to grind.

  60. pokerpro7s says: Mar 29, 2010 5:13 PM

    Ok, I’ve been holding back but I’m gonna be the first to say this. Despite Tomlin’s reputation as a “tough” coach I’m starting to wonder if this recent barrage of disciplinary problems might be related to him. I’m just saying, I don’t remember this sort of thing happening when Cowher was coach because he would have never stood for it and probably put the fear of God into his players if they ever got out of line.

  61. Deb says: Mar 29, 2010 8:34 PM

    @pokerpro7s …
    The Steelers had disciplinary problems during Noll’s reign and during Cowher’s. This is nothing new. It just happens to involve two name players at once.
    Holmes threw a drink at a woman, he didn’t rob a liquor store. I’m not excusing it–it’s appalling. But every team has someone on the roster who’s been in trouble for something similar.
    Roethlisberger had a one-niter with a Nevada hotel employee. A year later she sued for $3 million claiming rape. Everything presented so far in that case indicates it’s an extortion attempt. Since he didn’t do that, it makes me skeptical that he assaulted anyone in Georgia–especially since that woman also immediately hired a civil litigator. So far PFT has run a lot of rumors and stories about Ben being rude. But the only facts released by the police are that the girl is not accusing him of rape and there was no semen on her person. Ben has never been charged with a crime.
    From a PR standpoint and for the good of their players, I’m sure the Steelers will aggressively address behavioral issues. But everything really does look more alarming than it is.
