Holmes, a former Ohio State player, has had two other run-ins with the law since being drafted.
In June 2006, he was charged with domestic violence in Columbus, Ohio, but the charges were dropped when the mother of one of his three children declined to help prosecute the case. Prosecutors were told Holmes received anger management and domestic violence counseling through the NFL.
A month before that, Holmes was arrested for disorderly conduct by police in Miami, who also later dropped the charges. Holmes is from Belle Glade, Fla.
