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.
