A hearing for Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession has been postponed until Feb. 26, which will be after the NFL season concludes.
Holmes originally was scheduled to appear in Municipal Court yesterday. He was cited after a stop on Oct. 23 near Mellon Arena when police found three marijuana-filled cigars in his sport utility vehicle. When officers detected the odor of marijuana, Holmes said he had been smoking the day before.
Holmes was made inactive for the Oct. 26 game against the Giants and addressed the team the following day to apologize for his actions.
