Santonio Holmes sued for assault, battery

SantonioHolmes.jpgQuarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn’t the only member of the Steelers currently facing challenges via the legal system.

Receiver Santonio Holmes, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, faces a civil lawsuit for assault and battery.

According to CourtHouseNews.com, the suit was filed on March 24, 2010 for an incident occurring only two weeks earlier in Orlando.

Specifically, the incident occurred on March 7 — only two days after Roethlisberger’s latest misadventures.  And this possibly proves once again that players learn nothing from the misadventures of their colleagues.

The civil complaint contends that Holmes confronted plaintiff Anshonoe Mills after she refused to leave the arm of a couch in the VIP area of the Rain nightclub.  Holmes allegedly “put his hand” in Mills’ face while attempting to remove her from the couch.  Holmes then allegedly “threw his entire glass cup of liquor” at Mills’ face, allegedly causing a laceration below her eyebrow and “blinding her temporarily.”

She claims that, outside the club, she asked a police office to “reprimand” Holmes for his conduct.  The complaint then alleges that “he” (it’s unclear whether the pronoun refers to the officer or Holmes) “proceeded to inform the plaintiff that he was an NFL football player and that he could not face criminal charges.”  Mills also alleges that Holmes then “offered to give [her] money because he was a [sic] NFL star and could not get into trouble.”

Mills claims that she “felt pressure from [Holmes] and the Orlando Police Department not to press chargers,” and that while under said pressure he made “a short victim statement incoherently stating that she was hit in the face and bleeding near her eyes, however, intended not to press charges.”  She claims that the Orlando Police Department failed to write a police report.

Holmes faces claims of assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.  The owner of the club at which the incident occurred also faces a claim for negligent failure to provide adequate protection.  (Hopefully, the security tapes haven’t been covered up with new footage.)  Mills seeks unspecified damages in excess of the jurisdictional minimum of $15,000.

Stay tuned for more.

UPDATE:  I’ve spoken with attorney Jacques Cooper, who has confirmed that he represents Mills and that the action was filed last week.  He said that he has a copy of the “short victim statement,” and he asked me to call him back this afternoon to discuss the situation in further detail because, as he explained it, he is in Jacksonville preparing to enter a court hearing.

    Further evidence of the “high standards” that the Steelers uphold.
    Looks to me like the Steelers are transforming themselves into the 2006 Bengals. Good luck with that.

    “he asked me to call him back this afternoon to discuss the situation in further detail because”

  30. SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK says: Mar 29, 2010 10:00 AM

    Hmmm… Why would Santonio want Ms. Mills to leave the couch? She maybe didn’t look hot enough or refused to engage in hot lezz action with someone else there. The world was denied something beautiful. Still no excuse for violence though.

  31. ccoolahan14 says: Mar 29, 2010 10:00 AM

    So, as I was saying last week, HOW IS THIS ORGANIZATION ANY DIFFERENT THAN THE BENGALS OF A FEW YEARS AGO? NO TEAM HAS MORE HIGH PROFILE CRIMINALS/”INCIDENTS.” Somehow they like to convince people they are classy?! You have to be an ABSOLUTE MORON. They’re qb has raped a girl and sexually assaulted another, they’re best receiver is hopped up on drugs and now this, they’re best defensive player beats his baby-mama, and they’re kicker has been arrested…twice! Name ONE TEAM with more high profile criminals! Oh, not to mention they’re the team that popularized steroids in the nfl according to players back in the 70s and they are responsible for RIGGED games in today’s NFL. Seriously, no franchise is as worthless.

  32. GreenAsGrass says: Mar 29, 2010 10:01 AM

    It’s time to realize that the Steelers are now the thugs of the NFL.
    Ben, Harrison, Porter (I know he isn’t a Steeler but his troubles started before he left Pittsburgh) and now Holmes again.

  36. thedude says: Mar 29, 2010 10:08 AM

    The squeelers should hands down be the whipping boys for NFL thuggery, arrogance, and idiocy… seriously they must designate 10 hours a week of practice learning and perfecting the art of abusing women. Clearly an organization of class and professionalism. What a joke. I’m sure everyone at ESPN will still want to talk about the Bengals issues from 5 years ago though.

  37. PUR-D33 says: Mar 29, 2010 10:08 AM

    At the rate the Steelers are going, they could have more criminals on their team than the Ravens do. Nah, who am I kidding….

  38. Pervy Harvin says: Mar 29, 2010 10:08 AM

    You have to give credit to Dan Rooney and the Steelers Orginization. Due to the high rate of female abuse caused by Steeler players a new program is being implemented at the start of the 2011 season. Along with manditory conditioning and mini camps will be the BWYA(better watch yo’ ass) Scared Straight Program at Graterford Prison. All players will spend 3 days there as a regular inmate to learn the harsh realities of being the victim of abuse.

    is tired of this nonsense! we the fans have feelings
    too but it hurts our hearts because we cheer for the steelers with such passion and soul like a religion! this epidemic better go away this team cant afford to loose any other players because of raw stupidity!

    @Dan Snyder:
    Steelers are thugs and sh!t human beings. Were they having these issues with Cowher as head coach? I blame tomlin.
    Guilty.
    ___________________________________
    Bam Morris got caught with 4 kilos under Bill Cowher. Was that his fault too???? Guilty?????
    Get real. A coach can’t control his players off the field. All they can do is cover it up or deal with the consequences.
    FYI –
    Morris has become more well known for his off field legal troubles than his football prowess. On June 27, 1996, Morris pleaded guilty to felony possession of marijuana in a plea bargain deal in front of a Rockwall County, Texas judge.
    Police testified that they found 4 kilograms of marijuana and one gram of cocaine in his car during a traffic stop. He was fined $7,000 and sentenced to 200 hours of community service and six years probation.
    He was cut by the Steelers after the guilty plea and signed as a free agent with the Baltimore Ravens

    The Steelers, and Holmes, you can take the rat outta the hood, but you can’t take the hood outta the rat.
    Another piece of trash, wonder what Mr Rooney one of the forefathers of the NFL would think of his beloved Steelers now. The Q.B. accused 2 times for sexual assult and now this.
    The Steelers are showing their true colors, they are the new low down scum team in the NFL.

    Sounds like more BS. I mean who has’t had a glass slip out of their hand while throwing a drink in someones face. We sure are doing a bang up job with our thugs. Ward, Farrior, Troy, Batch and El (all great off field guys) are going to need to kick some ass in the lockerroom and get these thugs back on the right track. How can you have some of the classiest (off the field before any of you ward haters say he is an on field thug) and least classy players at the same possitions.

    ccoolahan14…your statements might hold some more validity, doubtful though, if you learned the difference between their and they’re. They’re means “They Are” and when you want to show possession, use “Their”… Just a simple english lesson for someone who likes to post a lot…

    Again, If someone caused you physical harm, wouldn’t you want to press charges? I think these chicks were planted by AFC North foes. McNutty (Ravens fan) GA girl (Bengals fan) Anshonoe Mills (Browns fan) The AFC North can’t take the Steelers down on the field, so they have to get these nutcases to take our guys out in the streets.

    15 grand for a hand to the face and a drink shower? Give me a break. I could see if he actually socked her, but I’ll bet this chick egged it on. Still doesn’t change the fact Holmes is an idiot. Like someone else said, get security to throw her ass out of there you moron.

    This is only going to get worse. Tomlin might as well just flush the whole roster and start over. As long as Rooney keeps the refs on the payroll, the Steelers will still be just as competitive, so why let all this bad PR continue?

  67. tikyle says: Mar 29, 2010 10:44 AM

    The new Steelers motto: “It ain’t a sin, if you win!” As long as those guys keep winning they’ll keep ducking charges as well. If the Bengals were winning during all those troubled seasons most of that stuff would have been a side note. Ask the 90’s Cowboys about it. They’ll tell you the same.

  68. MSWRavens says: Mar 29, 2010 10:48 AM

    Harrison, Ben, Holmes…and the fat, drunk & stupid crowd in Pittsburgh (in other words, the City of Pittsburgh) still thinks their stinkhole of a team is the CLASS of the NFL…I guess viewing the world through blood shot eyes atop a toothless grin can lead to such deviant thought.
    As one suggested…stay classy Pittsburgh!

  69. BenRapistberger says: Mar 29, 2010 10:51 AM

    Suddenly, video taping defensive signals that 80,000 people can see out in the open doesn’t seem so bad.

  70. trickbunny says: Mar 29, 2010 10:51 AM

    Kinda makes you take the couple Super Bowls this more or less current version of the team has won a whole lot less seriously, doesn’t it?
    Not that I took them seriously anyway. if you can’t win a single Super Bowl without officiating sketchiness or steroid use attached to it, no one (outside of Steeler fans) really takes it seriously anyway.
    That said, the way these mongoloids are acting, it tarnishes thier “super” rep even further. The Steelers going for a Super Bowl win is kinda like the neighborhood sex offender running for city counsel. Before you get to know him well, you’re like “maybe this guy would be good for this office”, then you find out he’s just like Rapistberger and you go, “eeewwwww, never mind.”
    You guys (Steeler fans) can knock it off with the “6 time world champions” horseshit you seem to defensively chant every time the world’s against you. 90% of NFL fans don’t recognize those SB “wins” as legit anyway. if you want to see what a real, legitimate, multiple Super Bowl winning dynsty looks like, please refer to the 80s SF 49ers or the Pats or the early/mid 90s Cowboys.

    It’s not Steelers that are the problem. It is Ohio Colleges. Ben – Miami, Santonio – OSU, Harrison – Kent. What is up with these Ohio players!!!!!

  85. nowathand says: Mar 29, 2010 11:24 AM

    I wonder if he was just trying to do the unflagged powder celebration with wine instead of the football? Why doesn’t Goodell just announce all 22 starters will be suspended for the first game and get it over with? He owes James Harrison an ejection for his punch on Aaron Francisco. I am using hyperbole here and I don’t think the majority of their rings are all that tarnished, but the fact that I can make such stinging jokes about the circus tells you they have a bit of truth. I think even Steelers fans are ready to see some sort of positive news story or Mike Tomlin announcing a suspension for Holmes. They want order restored.

  86. The Real Shuxion says: Mar 29, 2010 11:30 AM

    I don’t feel bad for piling on.
    I watched the Pens-Bruins game from 2 weeks ago via stream while I was in class, loved the Pittsburgh fans (stream chat) calling Matt Cooke a Beast, a winner, a victim, not a cheap shot artist, a true penguin (Kind of agree with that one) and then saying Shawn Thornton should have been suspended for starting a fight.
    No fanbase deserves this more.

    Uhhhh, Jungle Juice? You may want to check the Bengals archives for the past decade. They have had a lot of issues and they’ve been drafting questionable character guys for a long time now. Marvin Lewis’ tenure there has been ugly.
    Wow, how Bengals and Ravens fans think they have anything to say here is hysterical!
    Also, don’t be so quick to judge. You’re all going to feel like idiots after both players are cleared and the girls confess to looking for a payday. It’s telling how so many people jump on the side of the girl because it’s the Steelers. Had it been a player from their team or any team they don’t hate they would be saying these girls are pigs looking for money.
    This girl is seeking damages in excess of $15,000. Because a famous athlete made her “talk to the hand” and threw his drink on her. I can’t help but think this is probably exaggerated a bit and it’s still borderline normal behavior for a nightclub.
    I’m sorry, but $15,000 (this figure will probably be well over $100K by the time her lawyers inject “psychological damage” BS into the case) sounds excessive for a cleaning bill.
    But let’s set a dangerous precedent here for all famous people, shall we?

    Steelers won two divisonal games last year….which includes one ref-assisted win over the Ravens
    Steelers also missed the playoffs (like they will again this year)
    Pretty sure the AFC North can take the Steelers down on the field….Take them down like Roethlisberger seems to enjoy doing to little helpless girls

    I used to be proud to be a Steelers fan. This is getting embarrassing. The Rooney’s ran a classy organization for a long time. Respected on and off the field and admired by most folks. And even the fan’s that hated us had to have a smidge of respect for us. Not anymore, they are no better than the Bungles and any other hoodlem team. I would trade Ben and Santonio right now. I’m sure I’m in the minority but I would rather trade these thugs and maybe get some pride back then “win” with them. I don’t know if Tomlin or Art Rooney can’t handle these guys but the old man can’t be happy. Ben is drama queen and will continue to be an off-field distraction. This is his 3rd such incidence. (motorcycle and 2 chicks). See if the Rams would take him for 2 number 1’s. Santonio is decent but not Jerry Rice. He as Ben has shown he has poor judgment off the field. Ill take hard working team guys over publicity hounding spoiled brats any day of the week. But it’s all about winning so I’m sure they’ll get passes and be here for the long term. Very disappointing for the fans, these guys represent the team and the city very poorly.

    tryagain, read these two paragraphs and you tell me how she should be judged:
    ‘The civil complaint contends that Holmes confronted plaintiff Anshonoe Mills after she refused to leave the arm of a couch in the VIP area of the Rain nightclub. Holmes allegedly “put his hand” in Mills’ face while attempting to remove her from the couch. Holmes then allegedly “threw his entire glass cup of liquor” at Mills’ face, allegedly causing a laceration below her eyebrow and “blinding her temporarily.”‘
    This first paragraph indicates that she was probably looking for some type of confrontation (can also be construed as a potential payday at this point). If he “bought” the room and she refused to leave she’s just looking to cause trouble. Would a normal person leave if asked in that situation? Yes, unless they were looking to be a dick. Alcohol + Fl nightclub + belligerent drunk girl + famous athlete = trouble. And an easy payout. Still, Santonio, get the bouncers to take care of it. Or stay home!
    ‘She claims that, outside the club, she asked a police office to “reprimand” Holmes for his conduct. The complaint then alleges that “he” (it’s unclear whether the pronoun refers to the officer or Holmes) “proceeded to inform the plaintiff that he was an NFL football player and that he could not face criminal charges.” Mills also alleges that Holmes then “offered to give [her] money because he was a [sic] NFL star and could not get into trouble.”‘
    So, you people see this as believable? That a police officer (or Holmes depending on who she’s referring to) would say such a dumb thing especially when there are others around to hear it? LOL!

    Okay, for the sake of consistency if nothing more, I’m going to point out that no charges were filed, this is a civil suit–read $$$$–and Florio is quoting only her attorney. I’d like to hear what the Orlando PD has to say. I’m having a hard time believing those officers would have been impressed by Holmes hopping around saying “I’m a big, bad NFL star and you can’t arrest me.” If the OPD failed to arrest, they must have felt the situation didn’t warrant it.
    That said, this isn’t the first time Santonio has gotten into trouble. Blaming these issues on Tomlin is ridiculous. He’s more of a disciplinarian than Cowher, and both Holmes and Roethlisberger were on the roster when he came into the organization. You can’t make grown men behave like grown men. But you can require each player coming into your organization to attend off-season behavioral classes that focus on everything from anger management to money management to brand management to avoiding strip clubs and bathroom sexcapades. The NFL already does some of this for incoming rookies. The Steelers need to consider creating a more intensive internal program–and where possible, writing some of these issues into player contracts.

They trade away there best guys and don’t draft studs when they can, ie weiders bay etc. They haven’t had a winnng season since I was a freshman in college. It’s different with the Steelers they try, they used to run a classy operation. I love the Steelers but they are typical of what’s wrong with sports today, it’s all about me. And as long as they win they will get a pass from the orginazation and the fans! I’m just a little tired of it, they are an embarassment and if you can’t admit you are a homer! So spare me your preaching. Let’s see if Tomlin and Rooney step up to the plate or make excuses, I’d have a hell of a lot more respect for them if they said we don’t want these type of guys on our team win or lose. What’s next we sign TO! It would be a different kind of publicity. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    Yes. The Patriots were the only one doing unauthorized taping. That’s why a league-wide memo was sent out the previous offseason. Because only one team was doing it.
    In fact, a logical person might consider that the harsh punishment the Patriots received for an indiscretion every other team was doing was based more on disrespecting the authority of the new commissioner than it was about the actual act.

He had no right to throw a drink in her face even if he owned the room and bought her for the night.

    Who is this chick.. why was she in the VIP room? Was she with someone? I jus cant imagine someone going up to a complete stranger n telling them to get out… How did they who she was…etc? Im confused…. Anyone have the WHOLE story .. or is this the Whole thing?
    Why isnt she filing a criminal report and just civil? When i hear things like that it makes me believe its all about money..But that is the way of the world.

    Steeler4life,
    I think you ran out of kool-aid dude, I’m sure nobody in black and gold can do no wrong in your eyes, we disagree. Like I said it’s all about winning with most people. Some have more class than others. So because they are football players they get to act like idiots and get arrested and that is ok. Maybe you don’t care but some people do. These are supposed to be professionals, they act like a bunch of spoiloed brats.

    ‘This first paragraph indicates that she was probably looking for some type of confrontation (can also be construed as a potential payday at this point). If he “bought” the room and she refused to leave she’s just looking to cause trouble…’
    Nope, sorry, I still don’t see it like you do. Where was it mentioned he ‘bought’ the VIP room? If so, then maybe yeah she needed to leave…
    It wasn’t mentioned, that’s why I used “if.” There is almost no evidence to go by, so like Florio and the rest of you, I’m going to make my own assumptions. They hold as much water as Mr. Florio’s at this point.
    It’s fair to assume that a multi-millionaire would have been the one to rent the VIP room. I don’t know her financial situation, so I would assume Holmes paid for the room.

    I am still a Pirate fan. I’m not sure what you mean by “homer” but I don’t live in Pittsburgh or Pennsylvania for that matter. Am I concerned about these incidents? Yes. Am wanting to get rid of Santonio or Ben?. No, I’m not. You must be the “homer”. The Steelers have never been angels. People like you do make Steeler fans look stupid. I was a Steeler fan before you were born. People are this site are going off on this stuff because people like you get on here and try to tell them the Steelers are better people than the players on their teams. that might be somewhat true, but generally speaking it’s not and that’s why these people get a kick out of this stuff. It bothers you because you can’t get on here any more and rag Raven fans about Ray Lewis. I could care less about these sites. Give me W’s!!!!!! Yes, I admit it!!!!!!!!!

    Its time for this team to be dismantled starting with the QB and the head coach. Im a die-hard fan but I cant support this garbage anymore. Breaks my heart but I wont be using my season tickets this year. I’m going to sell them until they put a team on the field that doesnt belong in Camp Hill.
    Our QB is a pervert rapist and probably a paedo.
    Santonio gets arrested once a year.
    Harrison beats on women.

  154. BigFella87 says: Mar 29, 2010 5:22 PM

    Oh, there’s no denying it Whines_Hard.86…Steelers have been a force to recon with in the past,but as of late “The AFC North can’t take the Steelers down on the field, so they have to get these nutcases to take our guys out in the streets” seems to be a little too bold of a statement don’t ya think bud, and come’ on…..comparing the Steelers who were an established team at the time against the newly founded Ravens, that’s just horse sh*t bud!
    Ravens are the future of the AFC North…..No more Cowher for you buddy!
    F*ck the Steelers, Go Ravens!

    The Steelers are thugs. I wonder if they will ever REALLY test James Harrison for steroids. Dude was on a few different teams practice squads, he goes to the Steelers & all of a sudden he’s alot bigger & playing better than ever….hmmmmm??
    The org is full of cheaters always have been, always will be.
    ———————————————-
    1st, Harrison was on the Steelers practice squad before any other team.
    2nd, Steroid testing is done by the NFL or an independent agency (not sure which) but it is not left in the hands of the teams.
    But, if we all stuck to fact we would not have this site to spew forth our banal statements.
    Isn’t that right Mr. Florio.

    C) WhinesHard.86
    My vote goes for Whines all day long.

    Stihler fan,
    What does Ray Lewis have to do with the Steelers? If you waste your time on the Pirates that’s your fault. If you don’t like this site don’t friggin read it. The Steelers have an image problem, if you don’t get that or don’t care fine. It’s all about W’s for you, I get it. I want the Steelers to win the Super Bowl every year dude, but this is embarassing, if you don’t understand where I’m coming from than I don’t know what esle I can say.

    Holmes is just an idiot and a moron.

  161. Whines_Hard.86 says: Mar 30, 2010 4:43 PM

    BigFella87 , how can you say that the Ravens are the future of the AFC North??? The Steelers just won the Superbowl a little over a year ago. Last season they had some bad luck with injuries, that made them realize that they were lacking in depth a little. They are fixing that this off-season. The same corp group that one a year ago is still in place.
    As for the comment about the girls being linked to the the AFC North foes, obviously I was kidding. It shows how bright you are though, to take the bait. Good luck with the Bert to Boldin combination this year. Hopefully Bert can see past those eyebrows well enough to complete a pass.

  163. BigFella87 says: Mar 30, 2010 8:31 PM

    Honestly Whines.Hard.86…you’re a moron…
    You actually think I fell for your dumb ass comment about those girls…my god man….I can’t even finish this sentence, you’re such a moron!
    Why do I think the Ravens are the future of the AFC North……hmmm…LOOK WHAT THEY’VE BEEN DOING DURING THE OFF SEASON!
    They have: – Signed two proven receivers (well…maybe not so much Stallworth lol)
    – Added even more important player’s who will add depth to the roster
    They have NOT: -Sexually assaulted anyone
    -Embarrassed their team owners, or made jackasses of themselves over a Twitter account.
    -Signed sh*tty old players that they once released….
    Yep, with the direction Baltimore is going in, I’d say they are the future of the AFC North…………
    F*ck the Steelers, Go Ravens!

    I agree with you whole heartly 6times. (he say’s chuckling).
    I just have 1 thing to add.
    If anyone else throws a virtual glass, And I trip over my wireless connection.
    I’ll hold him personally responsible for my injuries too.
    Remember,
    It’s all fun and games till the cops get called……
    unless you got the money.
    now, everybody raise that big glass of shut the frik up…and…………..Kill yourself……………………
    ………………………………………………………………………….
