    You got that right. Twitter is FAR too immediate for some of these morons. It completely removes the filter that average people have. Type it, post it, BAM it's there for all the world to see, critique, etc. I cannot for the life of me understand WTF their lawyers don't have them disable their account while stuff like this is going on. A measure of accessibility is good, but this is way too much of a good thing.

    [B]Santonio Holmes invites fan to commit suicide, Twitter style[/B]

    [I]Earlier today, we pointed out that Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes has been trading jabs with fans via Twitter, in the wake of Monday's news that he has been sued for assault and battery.[/I]

    [I]We noticed, for example, that Holmes reminded one fan that the fans don't cut Holmes' checks.[/I]

    [I]We hadn't noticed a far less charitable exchange with another fan. Holmes accuses the fan of trying to make Holmes look like the bad guy, and then says that the fan "shud try finding the worst thing that you could drink n kill urself."[/I]

    [I]Nice.[/I]

    [I]So while Holmes looks to be in the clear from the perspective of the Orlando Police Department, he's still going to have some explaining to do to the folks who actually cut his checks.[/I]

    BBA7...Karma Police, line 2! HA HA HA!!! :D[/QUOTE]
    holmes might not be getting any checks cut if he dont keep his ohio state butt out of trouble... have you noticed that both players that are in legal trouble for the steelers are both from Ohio??? what does that say about Ohio????????hmmmm

    Despite the myth a lawyer can not protect a client from his own ignorance!!!! You can advice, cajole and beg but still people, often with fame, ignore you and do what they want and the result is what you see above...:eek:

    One word for the state of the Steelers: Implosion!

    I think Santanio has Gov. Patterson advising him on how to handle this matter.

    You know this how? Because the woman says so?

    The police filed no charges. If there isnít a video, I have to assume she is trying to squeeze some money out of court from him.

    Holmes case closed; suit proceeds

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000]Police in Orlando, Fla., announced Tuesday that they had closed their case involving Santonio Holmes because the alleged victim, a 21-year-old college student who has sued him for assault in a nightclub, declined to prosecute[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000].[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000]Even as the Orlando Police Department made its decision not to pursue Anshonae Mills' allegations, details of her own criminal past emerged -- arrests last year for assaulting a man in an episode of "dating violence" and arguing with a woman over a seat at a sports stadium.[/COLOR][/LEFT]

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000]Although the criminal investigation against Mr. Holmes is over, Ms. Mills' lawsuit against the Pittsburgh Steelers' receiver is proceeding. Her attorneys showed no indication of backing down, and one questioned the timing of the police department's release Tuesday of Ms. Mills' statement and a police report completed earlier in the day about the March 7 incident.[/COLOR][/LEFT]

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000]"That's a new report that was just ... filed. We're looking into that. That's new information. These facts have just conveniently come up now," attorney Jacques L. Cooper said.[/COLOR][/LEFT]


    [COLOR=#000000][LEFT][COLOR=#000000]The officer, unable to resolve the conflicting stories, told the two he would file charges against Mr. Holmes.[/COLOR]

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000]"Mills then asked this officer if she could speak to Holmes alone. I said yes and Holmes agreed to speak with her. They then walked several feet away from me and had a conversation," the report said.[/COLOR][/LEFT]

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000]"This officer observed Mills smiling and rubbing Holmes' face just moments after walking off together. Five minutes later the two returned and Mills advised this officer that they had resolved the matter and that she did not wish to press charges or get Holmes into any trouble."[/COLOR][/COLOR][/LEFT]

    [COLOR=#000000][LEFT][COLOR=#000000][B]Ms. Mills, a senior at the University of Central Florida, was charged in October by the Orange County Sheriff's Office with trespassing and resisting an officer without violence, both misdemeanors.[/B][/COLOR]



    [COLOR=#000000][LEFT][COLOR=#000000][B]A police report states that Ms. Mills took someone else's ticketed seat at the university's Bright House Networks Stadium. She refused to get up and resisted an officer's efforts to get her to leave. She was found guilty in February.[/B][/COLOR]

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000][B]In June, university police charged Ms. Mills with dating violence, battery and trespassing at an apartment.[/B][/COLOR][/LEFT]

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000][B]Ms. Mills and a man in the residence told police that she pushed him into a wall, creating a hole. The man, who had scratch marks on his neck, told Ms. Mills to leave but she refused, according to a witness.[/B][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000][B]A court ordered Ms. Mills to have no contact with the alleged victim. The case is pending.[/B][/COLOR][/LEFT]

    Holmes accuser will prosecute

    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000][B][I]Woman changes mind, wants Steeler to be charged[/I][/B][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000] [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#000000]
    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000]The woman suing Santonio Holmes who refused to prosecute him criminally for what she said was an assault at a Florida nightclub has changed her mind.

    Anshonae Mills informed police Wednesday that she now wants the Pittsburgh Steelers receiver charged with throwing a liquor glass at her face March 7 and causing a minor injury during a dispute over a seat at the club's VIP lounge.

    "Ms. Mills came to the Orlando Police Department yesterday and wants to prosecute, and the case has been re-activated," Orlando police Sgt. Barbara Jones said Thursday in an e-mail.

    No further information was available about how investigators plan to proceed.

    Police announced Tuesday that the criminal investigation had been closed because Ms. Mills would not cooperate.

    Ms. Mills, 21, a senior at the University of Central Florida, filled out a handwritten statement to police on the morning of the incident refusing to prosecute the football player.

    Officer Damon Barnes, who wrote the report, noted that Ms. Mills told him the situation was resolved and she did not want to press charges or get Mr. Holmes into trouble after the two had a private conversation.
    During that chat, the officer wrote that he observed Ms. Mills smiling and rubbing Mr. Holmes' face.

    Nonetheless, Ms. Mills sued Mr. Holmes last week for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She is seeking damages upward of $15,000.

    Mr. Holmes' attorney denied that his client assaulted Ms. Mills and said he has a private investigator gathering information to defend his client.
    "We adamantly deny her allegations in that complaint," Adam B. Swickle said Thursday. "We do plan on contesting everything."
    Mr. Swickle had no comment on the reopening of the criminal investigation.

    "I haven't heard anything yet," he said.

    Ms. Mills' lawyers could not be reached for comment.

    A police report indicates that Mr. Holmes, 26, "immediately denied ever touching" Ms. Mills and told officers that a female patron had thrown the glass at her.

    One of the allegations in the lawsuit is that Mr. Holmes and police pressured Ms. Mills to not press charges. Neither the suit nor Ms. Mills' lawyers have provided any evidence or detail to back up that claim.
    "Based on my investigation at this point, Santonio didn't put any pressure on anybody," Mr. Swickle said.

    He also discounted Ms. Mills' contention in her suit that the football player tried to buy her silence.

    Asked if Mr. Holmes offered Ms. Mills money, Mr. Swickle said, "No, of course not."

    Mr. Swickle, who is based in Fort Lauderdale, has a lengthy roster of professional football clients that includes former Steelers receiver Plaxico Burress and Cincinnati Bengals star Chad Ochocinco.
    The police report states that Officer Barnes told Ms. Mills and Mr. Holmes that with conflicting statements from the two and no independent witnesses, he planned to charge Mr. Holmes.

    Mr. Swickle would not comment on the police account of a private conversation, saying that that part of his investigation was not complete.
    Ms. Mills refused medical attention for her injury. The police report describes a one-quarter-inch abrasion over her right eye; the suit calls it a laceration.

    Ms. Mills also has sued J.J. Whispers Group Inc., the owners of Rain Ultra Lounge.

    In a statement, the club said it is still gathering information about the matter.

    Keisha Pickett, a spokeswoman for the club, said no evidence has been presented to support the allegation that anyone threw a liquor glass at Ms. Mills.

    "We don't welcome any incidents of this type at Club Rain. It's not what we promote or tolerate from any of our patrons, whether they're celebrities or not," Ms. Pickett said. "We want them all to feel safe and welcome while they're there."

    She said she did not know whether the club had a video camera system. Mr. Swickle confirmed that is an area he is exploring.

    "We look forward to be able to exonerate him," Mr. Swickle said of his client. "He's a good kid ... We're going to investigate and we have a lot of confidence that it's going to produce positive results for him."

    Ms. Mills, who has been arrested twice in the Orlando area -- she was found guilty of trespassing and resisting an officer without violence, while charges of aggravated battery, battery and trespass were dropped in another incident -- also has a criminal record in Jacksonville.
    In January 2008, she was charged with trespassing at a Walmart. She pleaded no contest. She also was cited for petit theft and completed a pretrial intervention program in April 2008
