First Santonio Holmes got his Super Bowl ring, now it’s been announced that prosecutors have dropped marijuana possession charges against him. The prosecutors decided Wednesday morning that there was not probable cause for the traffic stop that led to the charges.
Holmes was found with a small amount of marijuana after police pulled him over near the Mellon Arena back on October 23rd. Assistant District Attorney Rachel Newman announced at a hearing this morning before Allegheny County Judge Lester G. Nauhaus that, after reviewing case law, she determined the stop would not hold up in court.
The stop caused Holmes issues on and off the field, as he was suspended by the team for the October 26th loss against the Giants at home.
