Well, that didn't take too long, now did it?
Santonio Holmes, the wide receiver acquired by the Jets just before the NFL Draft last week, had to be removed from a plane at Pittsburgh International Airport on Thursday night, according to a report by WPXI, a television station in Pittsburgh.
According to the reports, investigators said they removed Holmes for being a "disruptive passenger." Investigators said the incident involved an iPod and refusal to comply with flight crew demands.
Must have been one heck of a song.
Holmes has a list of transgressions, but seemed to be adjusting to New York life rather easily (at least as of yesterday).
On his verified Twitter account Thursday night (@Santonio10), Holmes has posted this tweet around 6:30 p.m.: "Only guy on the plane headed to Pitt from NJ, wearing my green n white. GO JETS!"

The Holmes Transgressions
Holmes, the 2009 Super Bowl MVP, will miss the first four games of the 2010 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Coming off his best season at wide receiver (79 catches for 1,248 yards and five TDs), Holmes is also facing a lawsuit in Florida from a woman who claims he threw a glass at her, cutting her above the eye, in an Orlando nightclub.
Holmes was also arrested in 2008 for possession of marijuana, and involved in a domestic violence incident in 2006. The misdemeanor charges were later dismissed.
