The 49ers have released a statement claiming they have knowledge of the situation but are directing specfic questions to Crabtree’s attorney.
“We are aware of the allegation against Michael and understand that he has fully cooperated with authorities. The 49ers take such matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time as the legal process is ongoing. Additional requests for comment should be directed to Michael’s attorney.”
Crabtree is not under arrest and wasn’t detained. He’s expected to play on Sunday in Atlanta when the Niners take on the Falcons.
