San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree has made the trip to Atlanta for tomorrow’s NFC Championship game, even though he’s currently being investigated for sexually assault a woman.
“Michael fully cooperated with the inspectors and will continue to do so throughout this investigation,” the attorney, Joshua Bentley, said in a brief statement emailed to The Associated Press.
Bentley provided no additional details and had no further comment.
The statement comes after police said they were investigating a sexual assault allegation involving Crabtree in a San Francisco hotel early Sunday. Crabtree hasn’t been detained or arrested, and has agreed to be available for more questions in the future, police said.
The probe is being handled by the department’s special victims unit. When the investigation is done, the findings will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office, which decides if charges should be filed, police said.
Even though it looks like Crabtree will play this week, if things don’t go well with him and this investigation, he could be in question for the Super Bowl if the 49ers win tomorrow.
