Charged with: Misdemeanor domestic violence and assault
Date: 6/19/2006
Status of case: Charges dismissed. Holmes participated in counseling sessions offered by the NFL.

Back when he was with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears wide receiver Santonio Holmes was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and assault after the mother of his child told police that Holmes had choked her, thrown her to the ground, grabbed her arms, and slammed her into a door. However, the charge was dismissed in court because the woman was reluctant to testify against Holmes. She even asked that the charges be dropped. However, the prosecutor was adamant in taking Holmes to task for his alleged assault. Regardless, the judge found that there wasn't sufficient evidence to pursue the case any further.
