Holmes' lawyer confident there won't be charges

S. Holmes.jpgSantonio Holmes’ lawyer Adam Swickle has conducted his own investigation into the accusations against his client, and thinks Holmes will be cleared of wrongdoing soon.

“We have sent certain information to the detectives that we believe is
going to result in proof positive that Santonio Holmes did absolutely
nothing wrong that night,” Swickle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I don’t think you can have any
better evidence than what we just sent.”

It’s Swickle’s job to say things like this.  But the police report written on the night of the incident creates some obstacles for the alleged victim. 

Anshonae Mills, 21, originally declined to press charges against Holmes, but the case was re-opened when she changed her mind. Swickle expects Mills to drop her civil suit and says her lawyers took the case for publicity.

“This is nothing more than frivolous and extortion and we believe we are
going to show that,” Swickle said.

    Off course she changed her mind. This guy is a pro athlete and she didn’t realize it until one of her friend’s told her that she was missing out on a pay day.
    Same old story.

    His toes were down inside the line. Count ‘em – 6 trophies, all you fools.

    Stay tuned for scenes from the next episode of The Wire: Pittsburgh…
    What a joke. Drop the B.S. charges and let’s get to camp.

    this is what all defense lawyers are gonna say. What is he gonna blurt out?
    ‘dang holmes, knocked her along side the head to keep her in line’?
    in related news. The South Pole is still very cold (but getting warmer according to AL Gore)

    I’m waiting for the day that a lawyer says something like – “Oh boy, this…this just doesn’t look good. This case is not going to be easy to win, not at all.”

    He should be forced to wear a blonde wig and hang out in the bathroom with a drunk Big Ben. Then they both will learn their lesson.

    Okay, I am a Steelers fan and all but what does this have to do with anything in this article you dumbass?

  9. ForrestGump says: Apr 8, 2010 2:12 PM

    Had Florio written this, he would have thrown his $0.02 in where he’s SURE there would be charges… and then not explain why, in his usual, failed ambulance chaser style.

  10. superbowl says: Apr 8, 2010 2:17 PM

    italian army guy,
    you are a koolaid drinking fool in my opinion.
    no one is arguing he did not have 2 feet down
    THAT IS NOT WON OR LOST THE GAME
    1. He took his helmet off – admitted by the NFL to be a 15 yard penalty and THEY ADMIT they missed it
    2. on the steroid enraged return by harrison before the half – there was a BLOCK IN THE BACK on #34 at the 31 yard line – again the NFL ref admitted they missed this call
    And numerous other phantom calls in the game.
    GET A CLUE – you won because you bought it!

  11. chipwade says: Apr 8, 2010 2:22 PM

    I would most certainly hope that HIS lawyer would say that.

  12. Canyonero says: Apr 8, 2010 2:22 PM

    Phew! Now nobody will pay any more attention to that pesky Roethlisberger situation!

  13. Katmanduu says: Apr 8, 2010 2:23 PM

    Still, the big rumor out of the Burgh is Holmes wants out, cuz the Steelers apparently have zippy interest in extending his contract. Just think how GREAT this guy could be if he wasn’t a knucklehead.

  14. HamBurghlar says: Apr 8, 2010 2:32 PM

    @superbowl: Keep bitching, THAT’LL take the rings away from the Steelers.. lol. Are you a Seahawks fan by chance? Those idiots can’t get over it either, so maybe you should join the “whine and cheese party”?
    And yes, just another dumbass trying to catch a freebie from another NFL star… This one’s over and done with just like Ben’s.

    Anshonae Mills, come on down, you’re the next contestant on “The Price is Right.”

    You’re an embarrassment to yourself. Find a new schtick, or go find a different topic to chat about.
    The fact of the matter is – no one cares at this point, and even if they did, anyone who would be convinced by your vague, weak would have/should have arguments would have heard them already. Quit wasting your time and effort.

    “I don’t think there is any better evidence than we just sent to the detectives”….and it’s unmarked and in small denomination bills.

    This is so hard for me to believe. Let me make sure I got it right… the lawyer FOR Holmes conducted HIS OWN investigation, and HE thinks HIS client is innocent. Wow! Good enough for me…

    Wake and Bake…..
    Fight with females…….
    And Santonio says…”That’s how you be great!”

    Is it a DVD recording of the incident from the clubs cameras?

    “Assaultberger & Santurdio…

    I don’t know what’s scarier.
    The idea that some dolt actually took the time, while no doubt summoning all his might, to conceive of this razor sharp biting wit ( chuckle ) or that he actually doesn’t mind doing this in front of actual people.
    What’s next? Poopy pants & potty jokes? Fart noises?

    Real bunch of class acts you guys got there in Unemploymentburg.

    To the fine men and women of Precinct 12, Orlando Fla….
    My client Mr. Holmes recently received a request for a “large sports bag full of unmarked currency” to settle his legal dispute. Blackmail.
    We have no record of the request but have sent you a large sports bag full of unmarked bills as an example. Please consider this as evidence to support my clients innocence.
    No reply necessary…

    People, how exactly does 6 Lombardi trophies make these men “walk on water”? It’s a GAME. These men are PIGs in life.
    6 trophies, yey.
    Some players are idiots and morons at the same time though and should be held accountable for their actions. Santonio and Ben are both emotionally and morally bankrupt, have extremely bad judgement, and are guilty and should pay the maximum penalty.
    It’s pathetic and laughable that people think those trophies supercede anything else. It doesn’t.

    I don’t know. Maybe you should ask all the Steelers fans who hate the Browns why they seem to think there’s only one thing on earth that’s brown besides a Cleveland uniform…

    The Steelers have been my team since 1970, you moron.
    Maybe Santonio and Ben can each take a trophy with them to keep them company in jail.

  30. Steeler-lady says: Apr 8, 2010 6:06 PM

  32. .RebaT says: Apr 8, 2010 7:57 PM

    Ben and Santonio have starring roles in the Soap Operas.

  33. Steeler-lady says: Apr 8, 2010 9:39 PM

    Steeler-lady, maybe you need to go back to school and learn what a double negative is. Sad.
    I know more about football than you would ever know. Just look at the English you know. It is nice and surprising you actually got your GED.
    It is a shame that you are BLINDED by the trophies. When these 2 are indicted, you will look like a fool and I will LMAO.
    Also, “YAWN YAWN YAWN…….U NEED TO START WATCHIN CHESS,,U PUSSY”.

    Ugly duckling? You are probably some 60+ year old weighing about 300 lbs and very few teeth. It’s too bad I don’t meet you in person.

  36. Steeler-lady says: Apr 9, 2010 9:48 AM

    Reba Reba Reba ,,,or should i say HEFTY HEFTY HEFTY…… I would outschool you and alot of men in football. My hubbys friends call me for advice …
    I spent enough time in school… i dont need some 50+yr old trying to correct my text..its the internet not grammar school.I graduated high school…and even if i didnt,theres nothing wrong with people getting their GED’s to better themselves.
    What do you possibly have as PROOF that either of those 2 did anything wrong? Accusations are not proof either………………….What if the evidence proves neither did wrong.you will jus claim they paid them off… So you will never admit defeat.. But come this fall u will put on the black n gold n pretend to a be a fan again.
    I dont have a problem with those who are upset by the 2 of them putting theirselves in a position that allows gold diggers to make a move.. and i have said if Ben is guilty he should be punished.My issue is YOU claiming they are guilty on a mere accusation. thats BS.Jus because someone makes a claim doesnt make it truth.. just look at the innocent people in prison… all on someones claim.
    Lol@meeting in person..what would you do???
    Sounds like a threat to me…

  37. Loftus says: Apr 9, 2010 3:48 PM

    Ah yes, two of Pittsburgh’s finest ladies going at it.
    Please keep this in western Pennsylvania, nobody else cares.

  38. Steeler-lady says: Apr 9, 2010 10:57 PM

    loftus…noone cares what you care about. Western PA puts the NFL on the map…Lord (eastern Pa)knows Eagles cant do it… especially now since they traded away their only shot at winning anything………..

    But it is fun to watch the anger on people’s faces (and to see these types of responses) when you bring them up.
