Fla. Woman Says Steelers Player Attacked Her In A Nightclub
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A Florida woman is suing Pittsburgh Steeler Santonio Holmes, saying he attacked her in an Orlando nightclub.
Anshonoe Mills claims in the lawsuit that Holmes grabbed her face and threw a glass at her when he objected to her sitting on a couch in the Rain Night Club's VIP section on March 7. Mills says the glass hit her and cut her near the eye.
The lawsuit also claims Holmes and a police officer intimidated Mills so she wouldn't press charges.
Orlando Police Sgt. Barbara Jones hadn't seen the lawsuit and
Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said team officials were gathering information and had no immediate comment.
Holmes' teammate, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, was accused earlier this month of assaulting a Georgia college student. He has not been charged.
