San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree got some good news on Friday, when authorities confirmed that they are not filing charges after conducting an investigation into an accusation of sexual assault.

“The San Francisco Police Department-Special Victims Unit completed and submitted a thorough investigation of the allegations against Michael Crabtree,” San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon said in a statement, via CSNBayArea.com. “Following a review of all the evidence, my office has determined that no charges will be filed against Michael Crabtree at this time.”

The statement comes a week after word emerged that police were investigating Crabtree. That investigation centered on an incident that allegedly took place at a hotel in the Bay Area just hours after the 49ers beat the Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Crabtree played in the NFC Championship Game, and the 49ers were reportedly very confident that he would not be charged. Now Crabtree and the 49ers can breathe a sigh of relief and prepare for the Super Bowl.

  1. Some folks forget people are still innocent before proven guilty. Sadly, anyone can make allegations in this day and age.

  2. Where are the geniuses that were saying he should have been benched based on the accusation alone??

  3. He is one of the most underrated players for the Niners. He shall get a fat contract from someone when his contract is up.

  4. Crabtree will get a 6 game suspension just like Roethlisberger did right?

    Big Ben had no charges filed and Goodell assumed guilt anyway.

  5. Did he call the girl a victim a thousand times and get an hour special on ESPN?

    No suspension for Crabtree with just an accusation and no charges?

    No suspension for Crabtree with just an accusation and no charges?

  7. I’d like to dedicate this story to all the Falcons fans that were calling Crabs a rapist every time he touched the ball in the NFC championship game.

    “No charges will be filed against Michael Crabtree at this time. But we’re sure he’ll be back up here again in the future. No hurry.”.

    thegreatgabbert. That about says it all.

  9. Crabtree, next time a woman you just met ask to take close-up HD photos of all your birthmarks & tattoos instead of your autograph, run away as fast as if your life depends on it.

  10. It seems very irresponsible for the police to issue a statement saying they’re investigating someone for a crime as serious as this. This could have had such bad consequences for the guy and irreparably tarnish his reputation in spite of his innocence.

    its time for Crabtree to sue that Gold digger in return.
    ————————————————–
    What makes anyone think that Golddiggers have anything to sue for? Professional athletes are targets and should protect themselves with methods other than the condom.

    If there is enough evidence the prosecutor should charge the complainant with filing a false police report.

  12. Another innocent man’s name dragged through the mud while the woman skates anonymously. Seriously, there should be repercussions for people who file false claims like this.

  13. C’mon 9ers fans, you know it doesn’t matter if they didn’t find him guilty. He was implicated.

  14. i’m usually in favor of caution on the side of the woman in this sort of case, but with 2 other women in the room who said Crabtree did nothing wrong it seems obvious he did not assault the 3rd one.

  15. As if the Crab had to assault a female to get a piece.

    HELLO?? Dude is a young Proffessional athlete with money! I’m sure he can scroll down the cell-phone & make a call for a piece!!!

    These are Proffessional athetes folks!!!!!!!

    Just how we GO by the dime a dozen talk. These cats LIVE by it!!!

    She wants to play hard too get???…..COOL!!! Where’s the NEXT FREAK???

    Every other city they go, every other video, no matter where they (Proffessional ATHLETES) go, THEY SEE THE SAME OOOHHHHH’s!!!

  16. Its time for rich and famous people to get these females to sign a consent contract ala Dave Chapelle
    before hopping into bed.

  17. Money always wins out. The Prosecuters office wieghed the evidence against Crabtree to the amount of money Crabtree has access to in his defense. If Crabtree was a plumber, he’d be in jail, brought to trial and probably convicted of or plead guilty to a crime.

    Lets be realistic. Maybe The chick wanted money. Maybe Crabtree assulted her. OJ had a mountain of evidence against him, but he had the money to drag that trial out so long that the jury forgot what the prosecution put up against OJ.

    The scales of law are tipped by cash, not evidence. Pile enough money on your side and it will outwiegh the evidence on the other.

    Maybe those 2 denials came at a price?

  19. Doesn’t change the facts in this case which are:
    1. 9ers suck
    2. Crabtree is a 9er
    3. Ergo, Crabtree sucks

    Millionaires live by a different set of rules under the law. “Innocent until proven guilty” is just window dressing to make people believe the system is fair for everyone. Poor man has to prove he is innocent, believe it or not. Ever get a traffic ticket for some shady offense? Try to go to court and say ” I didnt do it ” as a defense. In theory, the idea that you are innocent until proven guilty should require no more than a denial if it is your word against your accuser. Doesnt work that way tough. Have enough money to get a good lawyer? You walk out of there not paying a dime to the government. It is only sad because it is true.

  21. Skippy and scump.. You guys smell like each others backsides.. Lol haters just because Crab had 3 oooohhhsss.. And you 2 just have each other … GO NINERS
