The Philadelphia Police Department’s investigation into an allegation of sexual assault levied against Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor was forwarded to the city’s district attorney last month and that office’s decision about whether to file charges could be coming soon.

Mark Eckel of NJ.com reports that Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams is expected to announce that decision on Friday. Per Eckel, the same source that spoke to him about the timeline for that announcement also said that the police “didn’t feel there was enough to file charges.”

Agholor was at a strip club in Philadelphia on June 9 and was accused of assault by a dancer that he had accompanied to a private area. The two allegedly agreed on a price for whatever would go on between them, but the dancer reportedly left before the agreed upon time was up and Agholor paid her less than the agreed upon price. The dancer left the club and later called police.

Agholor’s attorney said at the time the investigation began that he was confident no charges would be filed against his client. If that turns out to be the case, Agholor should be free to turn his full attention toward the coming season without the prospect of facing league discipline.

    In other words, breach of contract. Not sexual assault. BIG difference.

  2. These guys make too much money if they can afford to pay a stripper/hooker $1400 for an hour in a private room. Imagine what he’ll be able to afford if he ever makes it to his 2nd NFL contract.

  3. Son, don’t name drop yourself at a strip club…strippers aren’t in the game bc they want to give up free tail to a “celebrity” (local @ that) …take note weathermen & news anchors everywhere!
