The karma of the blessed. God never closes a door without opening a window. Math getting you down? A pissy flight attendant will magically appear to restore your groundless self-righteousness.

Right. There's just something about that brisk mountain air that compels a person to beat his wife and get into it with the Crips.

Maybe Woody can get his high priced lawyers to get OJ out early.

Oct. 31, 2004: During his junior year at the University of Central Florida, Brandon Marshall faced misdemeanor charges of trespass, resisting arrest without violence, disorderly conduct, refusal to obey and assault on a police officer after an argument with an off-duty Florida Highway Patrol officer turned heated at an Orlando Denny's restaurant. According to the off-duty officer, Marshall, who'd been asked to leave the restaurant for creating a disturbance, accused the officer and the restaurant manager of being "racist," threatened to sue Denny's and the Florida Highway Patrol and said he was "a star and a well-known athlete." Marshall screamed profanities and locked his fists as if he were preparing to strike the officer, according to the report. The charges were later dismissed.

April 8, 2005: Marshall was charged with retail theft, a misdemeanor, after trying to return a stolen set of bed sheets, valued at $19.99, to a Burlington Coat Factory, according to a police report of the incident. The charge was later dropped.

April 2006: Marshall was drafted by the Broncos in the fourth round of the NFL draft, No. 119 overall.

June 17, 2006: Conflicting police reports from Marshall and Rasheedah Watley were filed with the Orange County, Fla., Sheriff's Department. Marshall told police that Watley became violent after seeing him earlier that evening as the object of another woman's affection. Marshall described Watley to police as an old family friend and told police that Watley punched him and scratched his chest after an argument inside the couple's Orlando apartment spiraled out of control. Watley, who filed a police report by phone from Atlanta three days after the incident, told Florida police that Marshall was the aggressor, and that he slapped her in the face, grabbed her by the arms and pushed her to the ground, and that Marshall's sister, London, who was also present during the fight, cut Watley above her eye by throwing a cell phone or remote control at her face. No charges were ever filed.

Dec. 31, 2006: Marshall and several Broncos teammates were present at "The Shelter," a nightclub in Denver's LoDo section, as part of a birthday celebration for Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin. Former Broncos wide receiver Javon Walker later told HBO's "Real Sports" that an argument broke out at the club when Marshall and his cousin sprayed champagne on another club patron and his friend. The men, who argued with Marshall and his cousin, were then asked to leave the club, Walker told HBO. Walker admitted he didn't see the encounter. According to media reports, around closing time, Marshall and his cousin were seen on the sidewalk outside the club arguing with the patrons who had been ejected from the club earlier that night. Walker told HBO that he believes the argument contributed to a drive-by shooting a short time later that killed Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams.

Jan. 24, 2007: Police responded to a parking lot outside an Orlando bowling alley where Marshall and his father had a heated argument. According to a police report of the incident, Frederick Marshall said his son took out a handgun and fired one shot at him after the two men argued. Frederick Marshall, who refused to sign a sworn statement or press charges, said his son left the area after firing the handgun. Several witnesses said they never heard gunshots, according to the police report. While officers spoke with Frederick Marshall that evening, Brandon Marshall returned to the parking lot and provided his own statement. Brandon Marshall told police that his father had asked him for money earlier that night and that when he said "no," Frederick Marshall left the bowling alley in anger, broke a beer bottle on Brandon Marshall's vehicle and then tried to run down Brandon Marshall with his car, forcing him to jump between two vehicles in the parking lot to avoid getting hit, according to the report. Frederick Marshall also threatened to "ruin [brandon's] professional football career," according to the police report. Brandon Marshall also declined to press charges.

March 18, 2007: Atlanta police responded to a domestic dispute call at the Westin Peachtree hotel. Watley told officers that after meeting Marshall at the hotel that night, he became enraged after he went through her cell phone call list and noticed she'd been speaking with an ex-boyfriend. Watley told police Marshall hit her repeatedly with a closed fist. While she refused medical attention, police noticed a large, dark-colored bruise on Watley's chin. Police reported seeing Marshall in the lobby of a neighboring hotel but, according to the report, Marshall left and was not arrested. Police advised Watley to take out a warrant for Marshall's arrest, but Watley never did. No charges were ever filed.

March 21, 2007: Watley filed a report with police in Boca Raton, Fla. Watley and Marshall, who were staying in south Florida with Marshall's uncle, told police that an argument started that night at a local restaurant after Marshall refused to ask Watley to marry him. According to a police report, while Watley was walking home, Marshall grabbed a large pipe from a construction site and hit the ground with it in frustration. Nobody was hurt. Police characterized the incident as a verbal domestic dispute. No charges were filed.

March 26, 2007: Police in Douglas County, Colo., arrested Marshall for false imprisonment and domestic violence. Watley told "Outside the Lines" she was assaulted by Marshall a day earlier at Marshall's suburban Denver home -- she never reported that incident to police -- and that she was attempting to fly back to Atlanta to get away from Marshall. Watley told police she and Marshall argued at the Denver airport and that she later agreed to return to Marshall's home. Watley told police when she attempted to leave Marshall's home a second time, Marshall followed her taxi and, at one point, blocked its path with his Dodge Charger, leapt from his car and punched the taxi cab's windows. When contacted by "Outside the Lines," the cab driver confirmed Watley's version of events. Marshall denied punching the taxi cab's windows and later told police he was only trying to retrieve his cell phone, which he said Watley had taken from him.

May 25, 2007: Charges against Marshall relating to his arrest in Douglas County, Colo., were dismissed after he successfully completed anger management classes.

June 8, 2007: Police responded to Marshall and Watley's Atlanta condo at 5 a.m. and found Watley with a noticeable cut on her right thigh. Watley initially told officers that she accidentally cut herself with a kitchen knife. Watley told the first officer to arrive that while she had argued with Marshall earlier that evening, no physical abuse occurred. Marshall was not present. Roughly an hour later, at 6:07 a.m., police were dispatched to the condo a second time. On this second visit Watley told police that Marshall did indeed cut her thigh with a kitchen knife during a fight earlier that evening and that he later returned to the condo and continued to assault Watley by punching her in the forehead. Watley's friend, Kristeena Spivey, told police that while she was attempting to drive Watley from the condo complex, she noticed Marshall attempting to leave the scene. Spivey, who called 911 to make officers aware of Marshall's whereabouts, said when she attempted to block Marshall's exit from the parking lot with her vehicle, Marshall rammed her car with his Cadillac Escalade and then left his SUV and threw a large rock at the passenger side of Spivey's car. Marshall fled the scene before police arrived, according to Spivey and Watley. Watley was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment. No charges were ever filed.

June 30, 2007: Atlanta police responded to a fight-in-progress call at Marshall and Watley's condo. Watley told police that a fight broke out after Marshall missed a flight and blamed Watley. Watley told police Marshall struck her with a closed fist and choked her. Watley had a bruise on her left eye and noticeable scratches on her body, according to a police report of the incident. Officers made Watley aware of the procedures to obtain a restraining order. No charges were filed.

Oct. 22, 2007: Hours after defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers, Marshall was cited at 2 a.m. by Denver police for driving under the influence after he was seen driving erratically. His blood-alcohol level was 0.116 (the legal limit for DUI in Colorado is 0.08).

Jan. 18, 2008: Watley obtained a temporary protective order against Marshall in Fulton County (Ga.) Superior Court. At the time, Marshall was forbidden to come within 200 yards of Watley. Watley, through her attorneys, eventually agreed to lift the court order.

Feb. 18, 2008: Watley told "Outside the Lines" that as part of a Valentine's Day present, and in an attempt to repair their relationship, Marshall surprised her with a last-minute trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico. While on that trip, Watley said, Marshall argued with her about an ex-boyfriend. Watley said Marshall assaulted her at San Juan's Condado Plaza Hotel, hitting her in the mouth, which caused her to bleed, and choking her on the bed. A report was filed by police saying officers were called to the hotel to help hotel security escort guests from the property. The report does not mention Watley, Marshall or any details of the incident.

March 4, 2008: Police responded around 9 p.m. to a fight call at Marshall and Watley's Atlanta condo and found Marshall bleeding from his hand. Marshall initially told police that during an argument with Watley, one of Watley's sisters cut him on his hand with a knife. When asked by police who had the knife, Marshall then told officers there was no knife, and that he'd been cut on glass during a fight with Watley. Watley told police that Marshall became upset after finding text messages from an ex-boyfriend on Watley's phone. Watley had several cuts on her lips, according to a police report, and told officers that Marshall had grabbed her by the head and slapped her. While police were interviewing Watley, Marshall fled, according to a report of the incident.

March 5, 2008: Police returned to Marshall and Watley's condo around 1 a.m. Watley and her sister both told police that after the fight earlier that same evening, Marshall returned to the condo, took Watley's purse and threw her personal belongings, including clothing, off of the 20th floor balcony. Police told Watley to leave the residence, but she declined and explained that she feared Marshall would return again once officers left and damage more of her property.

March 5, 2008: Watley obtained her second temporary protective order against Marshall in Fulton County Superior Court. Marshall was once again forbidden by the court order to come within 200 yards of Watley.

May 5, 2008: Atlanta police were called once again to the condo Watley shared for more than a year with Marshall. According to a police report, Watley and Marshall's mother argued about Watley's attempt to remove items from the condo. No charges were filed.

Aug. 5, 2008: The NFL released a statement announcing that Marshall would be suspended without pay for the Broncos' first three regular-season games of 2008 for violating the NFL personal conduct policy. The statement noted that "if Marshall fully complies with required counseling and other conditions of the suspension, Commissioner Goodell will consider reducing the suspension to two games."

Aug. 28, 2008: Less than a month after the NFL released a statement announcing Marshall's suspension, the league released another statement saying Marshall's suspension had been reduced upon appeal to one game without pay plus an additional fine of one game check. An NFL spokesman told ESPN "a potential reduction in [Marshall's] initial three-game suspension was always contemplated if he complied with required counseling and other conditions of the suspension." The spokesman would not elaborate on the precise conditions Marshall met to have his suspension reduced.

Sept. 10, 2008: Marshall was charged with two misdemeanor counts of simple battery as a result of the incident the previous March (his formal bond arraignment was Nov. 3, 2008). Simple battery, according to the Fulton County District Attorney's office, is punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

Sept. 12, 2008: Nearly a year after being cited for DUI in Denver, Marshall pleaded guilty to the lesser offense of driving while ability-impaired. He was sentenced to one year of probation.

Feb. 5, 2009: While attending a dinner party in Honolulu as part of his Pro Bowl appearance, Marshall proposed to Michi Nogami-Campbell. Marshall told the Denver Post he met Nogami-Campbell while the two attended the University of Central Florida. The engagement prompted several sports writers to praise what they characterized as Marshall's maturity.

A smoke? I love how you skewer the article.

and actually, it is no biggie. A far cry from rape,drugs and murder.

you cant see that th smoking comment was a joke and NOT refrenced to the Santonio Incident ? Get real man.

Also the incident itself is not what worries me. What worries me is the fact this IDIOT is under the microscope of the NFL and he does not seem to give a ****

Wow, Georgia is still in the dark ages when it comes to domestic violence. Had any of those incidents occurred in NJ, Marshall would not only have been charged (police officer responding must arrest and sign complaints if there is any sign of visible injury, regardless of victims opinion or consent), but would be doing lots and lots and lots of time with each consecutive incident. Of course, if he were in Jersey, he's probably think twice about slapping around his girlfriends after his first stint in jail. Freakin Georgia.

More info on this story is needed. Airlines have become crazy with kicking people off over the past few years. I'm not concerned @ all.

How many flights have you been kicked off of? I know I never have and I fly pretty regularly. Never even witnessed anyone get tossed. It's one thing if there is a mixup and someone is on a fed terror watchlist for no good reason, but I highly doubt that was holmes' problem.

GA is in the dark ages when it comes to the legal system period. They let Rapistberger walk without as much as an indictment or a grand jury hearing.

I miss the days when flight attendants were pretty, young and served you food and beverages sans attitude.

That's when banging a flight attendant was something you could brag about. Now you would be ashamed to admit it.

Did The Steelers Give Up On Holmes Too Quickly?

Steelers Fever Exclusive Editorial

Friday, April 16, 2010

By Flip Fisher

SteelersFever.com Guest Columnist

For the record.

While a teenager, Santonio Holmes was a self-admitted drug dealer in Belle Glade, Florida.

May 27 2006 - Arrested for disorderly conduct. Charges dropped.

June 18, 2006 - Arrested for domestic abuse and assault. Charges dropped.

October 23, 2008 - Arrested and cited for marijuana possession. Suspended one game.

March 7, 2010 - Allegedly tossed a drink in a woman's face, and apparently cutting her eye with the glass. Civil suit filed, criminal charges pending.

April 10, 2010 - Suspended for four games next season after violating the NFL drug policy.

Quite the track record for the Steelers' Super Bow MVP. Now he is the property of the New York Jets. There will be two burning questions that a lot of fans and the media will be asking.

1. Did Pittsburgh give up on this gifted WR too soon?

2. Did the Steelers get any kind of market value for him?

To take a crack at the first question is fairly simple. The long time owners of the Steelers, the Rooney family, have always had a short fuse when it comes to troubled or out of control players. Plaxico Burress, now in jail, and Joey Porter, still shooting his mouth off and under performing, are two prime examples. Both entering what would be considered primes of their careers were dumped because of character issues.

Holmes has all the talent in the world to be a all pro WR, as he did lead the league in yards per reception in 2007. Holmes was also slated to become the clear cut no. 1 WR as Hines Ward continues his slow decline. The former Ohio St. Buckeye simply wore out his welcome though. But should he have been granted another chance? The Rooney's have always stated that high character players, will always outweigh players with poor behavior or run-ins with the law. The 5-11 192 pound WR clearly was no longer worth the headaches that he brought to the storied franchise. Super Bowl MVP WR are not a dime a dozen in the league, but with the civil suit pending and now the woman is wanting to press charges, the writing was on the wall.

During the same time, Holmes made some very foolish Twitter posts, one even suggested a poster commit suicide. Then a few days after the woman said she wanted to file charges, the impending suspension leaked out. That was it for Holmes in Pittsburgh. As a repeat offender he will be suspended for four games, as he was already enrolled in the league's substance abuse program. Clearly Pittsburgh could no longer tolerate a player with drug issues and persistent legal issues, along with lashing at out the public in his blog.

The Steelers gave this highly gifted athlete more chances than maybe he deserved, and had to simply cut their ties with him. Holmes was traded to the New York Jets for their fifth-round pick, 151st overall. Fair compensation for the 2006 25th overall pick? Fair compensation for a Super Bowl MVP? Fair compensation for a player who is only 26 and is an emerging star on the field? Yes and no.

Pittsburgh might have been worried that charges, in the drink tossing incident, might be filed. Thus leading to a longer suspension. Also, this could drop his trade value even more. There have been plenty of gems in the fifth-round of the NFL Draft. Rodney Harrison, Aaron Kampman and Zack Thomas just to name a few. There is talent in the 5th, but usually very raw and not easy to spot. The last solid Steeler found in the fifth was probably Barry Foster, and that was long ago.

But realistically, they did not get fair value for this talent leaden player. Quite a few picks in the fifth do not even make it to the final cuts, in their rookie season, let alone in their sophomore year.

Basically it comes down to the Steelers' organization telling all their current and future players to keep their wrists out of cuffs and their blood system clean or they will not have a shot to be with the Pittsburgh Steelers when they vye for their, record setting, 7th Super Bowl ring.

One time I thought I was going to get kicked off. I was in a deep sleep and apparently the plane was going to land in about 20 minutes. So this male steward shook me awake to remind me that my seatback had to be in its full upright position. I swear to GOD, it was reclined about a quarter of an inch. I told him if he does that again I will beat him to death.

I guess he thought I was kidding.

I wasn't.

I've never been kicked off, however one time on a flight to ATL they kick off a old lady for painting her nails, I kid you not. It was around the time when they didn't allow any liquids or whatever BS. That was the first time I saw US Marshall's. A couple of years later, same thing happened when a guy was watching a movie on his laptop with his son. A lot of these people go over board IMO. If Goodell suspends Holmes for this, it's a JOKE!

In all fairness, Santonio may not be aware of that fact that ipods, dvd players etc. disrupt the electronics of the pilots. However, it didn't seem like they were ready for take-off so I honestly don't see what happened.

The only thing i can guess was that it was too loud and they asked him to lower it and he said **** off or something. I've kept my ipod on straight through almost every flight i've been on in the last how many years and I fly quite frequently and only once or twice was I asked to turn it off.

The plane was in the air and landing.

Everyone is asked to turn off electronic devices. I dont believe an IPOD could interfere with communications, but those are the rules when you fly.

Goodell should give him another two games off for being a POS.
