Property in Indiana owned by former NFL player Jason Fabini was raided by the FBI on Thursday, as part of an apparent investigation into his brother’s activities.

Fabini issued a statement saying he is cooperating and doesn’t believe he is a target of any investigation.

I have cooperated fully with authorities, and will continue to do so. I have not been charged, nor do I expect to be charged with a crime,” he said in the statement, via the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. “I expect the community will have many questions as rumors circulate and this investigation continues, but I ask that we trust in the authorities to do their job.”

The FBI also raided the home of Fabini’s brother, Michael Fabini, and the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports that Michael Fabini’s neighbors have long been suspicious of the activities in his home, which Michael Fabini has expanded to add tunnels and multiple basements totaling 3,691 square feet. The home has surveillance cameras everywhere and what appears to be a commercial-grade generator.

Fabini was an offensive lineman for the Jets, Redskins and Cowboys from 1998 to 2008.

    Refreshing, a player that comes out before something bad happens and let’s people know that he is cooperating and that he doesn’t “THINK” that he will be implicated.

    It is so much better then waiting until after, and then saying I am being picked on.

    He probably should have built that house in Colorado or Washington.

    End of the world this month, can’t protect yourself from that!

    I’ve seen enough episodes of Criminal Minds to be terrified of what is in those tunnels and basements.

    So what’s the crime? For all we know, the guy’s just paranoid.

    fergie22 is right on. Suspicious? Yes. Illegal? No.

    Guessing the suspicions raised by the construction led to an investigation, which led to other findings, like, large shipments of “bird seed” from Amsterdam. Or something like that.

    That’s the point, it’s an “investigation” if the find nothing then fine…security cameras are one thing but 3600ft of tunnels is an suspicious.

    Sounds like a episode of doomsday preppers to me

    3,000′ of tunnels won’t get you out of Indiana… Keep digging!

    The FBI knows more than that he is just building tunnels and has surveillance cameras. To search his home, they had to get a warrant saying they had probable cause to believe that a crime was committed there. Of course, they don’t just announce exactly what they’re doing until they’re done and the suspects have been arrested, so that’s why no other details are available right now. In other words, grab the popcorn and stay tuned.

    Since when is it a crime to prepare for the imminent zombie apocolypse?

    Don’t worry, some day they will come to your house simply because they think you are acting suspicious. And don’t ask me who”they”are.
