Are the Cleveland Police Department and the city’s CBS affiliate conspiring to hide the identity of a projected first-round NFL prospect accused of sexual assault so his draft status won’t be hurt? It would seem so. Barry Petchesky reports:
A player who is expected to go in the first round of Thursday’s NFL draft has been accused of sexual assault, according to Cleveland 19 News. But this is a weird one: The station is not naming the player, despite having a statement from his attorney, because the cops are dragging their feet on filing a police report.
UPDATE: TMZ has learned the name of the football player, and not surprisingly he is a local star.
