As reported on WPXI.com, former Pittsburgh Steeler Santonio Holmes was escorted off of a plane at Pittsburgh International Airport.

Though he was not arrested, investigators state that Holmes was being a "disruptive passenger."

It is being reported that the incident occurred when Holmes refused to comply with flight crew when they demanded that he put his iPod away.

Holmes has already been suspended for the first four games of the 2010 NFL regular season.

This brings into question the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. What, if anything, will the NFL do based on the fact that Holmes was obviously not following the orders of airport security?

Though there was no arrest, is this something that Roger Goodell will use to increase the current suspension of Holmes? Is this something that is going to be ignored? Should this be a concern?

What do you think, Bleacher Creatures?


UPDATE: PFT is now reporting that Holmes was not removed, but a report WAS filed with the Allegheny County Police Department.

With a police report filed, and this being his second offense THIS offseason, I am curious as to what the NFL Office is thinking.

Where can I comment?
