Michael Crabtree, star wide receiver of the San Francisco 49ers,  is in Atlanta now, preparing for Sunday’s NFC championship game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The winner of that game will go to the Super Bowl, so the sexual assault allegations should be the last thing on his mind.

Nevertheless, an incident that officials say allegedly happened in a San Francisco hotel last Sunday after the 49ers playoff game against Green Bay continues to haunt him.  There has been an allegation of sexual assault, and the details are not known at this time.

Michael Crabtree’s attorney has stated that his client has met with police.

“Michael fully cooperated with the inspectors and will continue to do so throughout this investigation,” the attorney, Joshua Bentley, said in a released statement.
