Holland, who started 16 games for the Seminoles this season, hitting .243 with eight doubles and 10 RBIs, was arrested on Monday on suspicion of switching price tags on items at a sporting goods store in Village Pointe, in Omaha in order to purchase the items at a lower price.
Holland started in both of the Seminoles' College World Series games as the designated hitter, going 1-for-5 with two RBIs in the loss to Arizona and 0-for-1 with two walks and two runs scored in the victory over Stony Brook.
