Friday January 18th, Michael Crabtree was interviewed for an investigation of sexual assault. One week later, Crabtree was cleared of any wrong doing according to the NFL.com.
The San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon released a statement on Crabtree and the investigation;
“The San Francisco Police Department — Special Victims Unit completed and submitted a thorough investigation of the allegations against Michael Crabtree. Following a review of all the evidence, my office has determined that no charges will be filed against Michael Crabtree at this time.”
Crabtree caught 6 passes for 57 yards told Jeff Darlington of NFL.com that the investigation was not at all a distraction;
“No distractions, baby, it’s football, this is what I do for a living. I play ball.”
The clearing of his involvement comes right as media day for the Super Bowl is approaching this upcoming Tuesday. For Crabtree’s sake, now he doesn’t have to deal with the barrage of questions that will come his way, he can just say he’s no involved and point to the District Attorney’s statement on the matter.
