Officer, it’s NOT a shotgun in his pants!!! Santonio Holmes was cited for possession of marijuana Thursday after a traffic stop yesterday. Holmes handed over a few blunts and was issued a misdemeanor citation. Sgt. James Vogel of the Pittsburgh P.D. doesn’t want pissed-off Steelers fans to take out their frustrations over a possible NFL suspension out on him:

Vogel said Holmes was very cooperative, respectful and wasn’t impaired. He thinks that should be taken into account when it comes to any potential action taken against him by the Steelers and the NFL. “We wouldn’t expect a steelworker to be laid off or suspended without pay,” said Vogel. “I wouldn’t expect a police officer, firefighter or a member of the Steelers.”

Actually, most people expect that a cop would get suspended if they were cited for criminal possession. Santonio, expect a terse voicemail from Goodell’s office.
