Santonio Holmes

This is fun: Santonio Holmes has got himself into trouble with hte law. Or at least, with a woman who is using the law against him.

Also on Monday, it became public that receiver Santonio Holmes, who was the Super Bowl most valuable player last year, is facing a civil lawsuit alleging that he threw a drink in a woman’s face at an Orlando, Fla., nightclub.

Now think about this just for a little moment. If someone threw a rink in your face in a nightclub would your first reaction be to sue them? Punch them in the face perhaps. Maybe even call over the bouncers to get them thrwon out of the night club maybe?

But reach for a lawyer?

OK, when faced with an NFL player perhaps punching them isn't going to work. But I'll bet that the decision to reach for a lawyer was highly influenced by the thought that he was an NFL player....and thus rich enough to be worth suing.
