The Louisiana State Police have looked into allegations that the New Orleans Saints rigged communications devices at the Superdome to eavesdrop on opposing teams, and they’ve found no evidence of wrongdoing.
A source told PFT that the State Police are announcing those findings at a press conference today, and Louisiana State Police Col. Mike Edmonson told the Associated Press that after conducting numerous interviews, “there is no evidence that state laws have been violated.”
The wiretapping allegation came from an ESPN report that accused Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis of setting up communications equipment in his box at the Superdome so that he could listen to the communications of the opposing coaching staff. Loomis has vehemently denied those allegations, and others who have been with Loomis at games have said they’ve never seen him do anything of the sort.
The Saints have separately hired the firm of former FBI director Louis Freeh to conduct an investigation into any wrongdoing within the franchise.
