Holmes Arraigned on Marijuana Charge

From: AP

Steelers receiver and Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes has been formally arraigned on a misdemeanor marijuana charge stemming from a traffic stop.

Pittsburgh police say they found three marijuana-filled cigars in Holmes’ car when he was pulled over Oct. 23. Holmes was stopped because his vehicle was similar to one police were looking for in a drug sting.

Police say Holmes cooperated and pointed out the drugs to officers.

Holmes’ attorney has characterized the marijuana charge as a low-grade misdemeanor. At most, Holmes faces 30 days probation and a $500 fine if convicted.

Holmes didn’t appear at the hearing, at which charges are formally presented and his attorney enters his appearance.
