NFL: Jets WR Santonio Holmes in flight flap over iPod

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. The New York Jets say authorities at Pittsburgh International Airport filed an incident report after wide receiver Santonio Holmes failed to follow flight regulations by not turning off his iPod as the plane he was on was landing.

Jets spokesman Bruce Speight said Friday that the team was told Holmes was flying from Newark Liberty International Airport to Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

Speight says the report was filed with the Allegheny County Police Department after Holmes' flight landed. Holmes got off the plane and police officers reminded him of complying with flight regulations, but the wide receiver was not charged.

The troubled but talented Holmes was traded by the Steelers to the Jets on April 11.
