The San Francisco Police Department announced tonight that no charges will be filed against 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree after he was investigated following an accusation of sexual assault.
That means Crabtree can travel to Super Bowl XLVII without this issue hanging over his head. A woman had accused him of assault following the 49ers’ victory over the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago.
“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, according to CSN Bay Area. “Following a review of all the evidence, my office has determined that no charges will be filed against Michael Crabtree at this time."
