Santonio Holmes Hit With 4 Game Suspension

4/12/2010 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes just received a 4 game suspension from the NFL -- but it wasn't for that alleged glass-shattering incident at an Orlando nightclub.

Literally hours after he was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the NY Jets -- it was confirmed that Holmes will be forced to sit out 4 games during the 2010 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

According to ProFootballTalk.com -- which broke the story -- it's unclear if Holmes tested positive for a banned substance or merely missed a drug test.

As far as that glass-throwing incident is concerned -- that case is currently in the hands of the State Attorney's Office.

It's not what he actually did that got him suspended, it's what he said. He tweeted that it was time to "wake and bake" which means to smoke pot just after waking up in the AM.

He's a woman beater, he's not a team player. terrible decision to have him be a Steeler. Glad the Steelers got rid of him....for a 5th round pick....LOL, what a slap in the face! Now Ben watch your ass with your antics.
