    This is a good thing. Hopefully, he can learn from this.

    Which is probably why he wants out of Pittsburgh. Fans weren't on his side, getting all over him for doing nothing.

    Holmes' Lawyer Says Woman is Blaming Wrong Guy

    Santonio Holmes' lawyer says accuser fingered wrong man
    Sent evidence to police that he says will exonerate Steelers receiver

    Thursday, April 08, 2010
    By Jonathan D. Silver, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Santonio Holmes' lawyer today said he has sent the Orlando Police Department evidence that will exonerate his client, who is under investigation for allegedly striking a woman in the face with a liquor glass at a nightclub last month.

    Adam B. Swickle sent the evidence to the lead investigator Wednesday by overnight mail. He would not disclose what information was provided that he hopes will derail any criminal case against the Steelers receiver.

    "We have received substantial and . . . undisputed evidence that Santonio Holmes had nothing to do with the throwing of that liquor. He was not the one that did it," Mr. Swickle said.

    Furthermore, Mr. Swickle said, he does not believe that anyone even threw a glass at the alleged victim, Anshonae Mills.

    Orlando police said they could not comment on an ongoing investigation.

    Ms. Mills, 21, a student at the University of Central Florida, sued Mr. Holmes last month in Orange County, Fla., over the confrontation, which occurred March 7 inside the Rain Ultra Lounge nightclub.

    Ms. Mills accused Mr. Holmes, 26, of throwing his liquor glass in her face after a spat over a seat in the VIP area. According to her lawsuit, the glass opened up a small cut on her face, and the liquor temporarily blinded her.

    Once outside the club, Ms. Mills claimed the football player and police pressured her not to press charges. Mr. Swickle disputes that account.

    Ms. Mills declined to press charges, according to both a police report and a handwritten statement. However, after she filed suit she told police she wanted to prosecute after all.

    Mr. Swickle does not dispute that there was some sort of incident involving the two but said his client did nothing wrong and certainly did not attack Ms. Mills.

    Ms. Mills' lawyer, Jacques L. Cooper, declined comment.
    More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Re: Steelers | Holmes' lawyer says new evidence clears him

    guess this is the new evidence Holmes' lawyer was referring to -


    Witness takes blame for Santonio drink-throwing

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 9, 2010


    Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes has yet another reason for a celebratory "wake n bake."

    According to WPXI-TV, Holmes' lawyer claims to have a sworn statement from a man who admits to throwing a drink in the face of the woman who claims that Holmes did it.

    Attorney Adam Swickle said that the man admits to throwing a juice drink in the face of Anshonae Mill, but that he didn't throw the glass. Mills claims she was struck by the glass, which cut her under the eyebrow, and temporarily blinded by the contents.

    The sworn statement apparently is the evidence to which Swickle was referring on Thursday.

    Great news! I hate to bring down the mood and I hope that we have a case of a skank trying to cash in on one of our boys, but man that looks kinda shady. If this and the Ben incident we're two players from say the Pats I probably would be thinking something might be up. Not trying to piss anyone off on here at all, but does anyone else think the sudden witness combined with Bens tape getting erased or whatever sounds skeptical?

    If you re-read the tape info from the club. One place said the cops seen it already. It was when they went back to review it again it had been written over. Not sure what to make of the different info on that. As far as Holmes, I hope the guy that confessed got some good coin!
