Santonio Holmes wasn’t removed from plane

Despite a report from WPXI.com that stated that he was escorted off a Pittsburgh plane on Friday, NBC Sports states that Santonio Holmes was not pulled off for being a “disruptive passenger.”

Police in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania has issued a statement confirming that Jets receiver Santonio Holmes was not removed from a flight at Pittsburgh International Airport on Thursday night. Here’s the full text: “As previously reported, Santanio Holmes was NOT removed from any airplane (4/29/2010). He was asked to remove his Ipod (at one point), in which he complied. There’s no further information to report.”

Talk about a botched report by WPXI.com. I know Holmes hasn’t been a model citizen of late, but there’s a big difference between a guy being forced to turn off his iPod and a guy being escorted off a plane. I don’t know where they got their info, but that’s some bad reporting.

And it completely ruined my joke from yesterday’s post, which is the bigger crime if you ask me.
