If you haven’t heard the news, Michael Crabtree is being questioned on a case of sexual assault. He’s complied with everyone and is with the team in Atlanta right now.
I don’t know what to make of this. The woman reportedly went to the police a few days after the incident. That sounds fishy. But at the same time, these kinds of sexual assaults are so common in this day and age with athletes that I will never rule out anything.
It’s a surprise to me though because in my years covering Crabtree, he has never come off as a guy that would do such a thing. His shy demeanor never came off to me as a very aggressive guy that would hurt a woman.
This could be a case of a woman trying to make money off of a celebrity or Crabtree really did do something wrong. I don’t want to pass judgment early because it wouldn’t be fair. But based on my experience with him, this is a shocker that is not really a surprise.
