COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes was charged with domestic violence early Monday, police said.

Holmes was arrested at an apartment just after midnight and taken to Franklin County Jail, Sgt. Loucious Hollis said. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.

Hollis confirmed the domestic violence charge against Holmes, but declined to say who made the complaint or provide details of the allegation.

A message left for the Steelers by The Associated Press was not immediately returned.

It was Holmes' second arrest since being selected in the first round of the NFL draft. He was arrested in South Beach, Fla., for disorderly conduct during a Memorial Day weekend crackdown by local authorities.

Steelers coach Bill Cowher criticized Holmes the following week, but said he wouldn't hold the incident against the former Ohio State receiver.

"Whatever he did wrong, I don't think he handled it properly," Cowher said then. "I think he'll learn from it and understand the scrutiny he's under. We have not talked face to face about it. I don't have any long-term concerns."

I just heard it on ESPN radio as well. Cowher was being interviewed by Mike and Mike, but would not comment.

Nice work, Santonio. Trying to throw away a bright future before it ever gets started? I hope someone gets you the help you seem to need.

What? No mention of Chris Henry being anywhere nearby?

need to get Henry and Holmes on the same time, what a tandem they would make.

Geez, all we need is Ray Lewis to go back to Atlanta, and the AFC North will look like a police blotter. :D

If he hit a woman or a kid, I truly hope the Steelers never sign him.

That's an interesting thought.

Very Interesting. And if anyone had the 'steel 'nads' to do it, it would be Pittsburgh.

Put that in the clip and save department.
