A Report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says that the player involved with the alleged sexual assault incident involving a Packers player is second-year CB Brandon Underwood. The paper had the story earlier, but with no name, but about 11:15pm Saturday night released an update saying Underwood is the player involved.
Here is more of what the paper had to say about the case involving Underwood:
Police said seven Packers were at a condo where a party was taking place and where the two women said the assaults occurred.
Six Packers were interviewed and released, but police are focusing on the seventh player, who told investigators that the contact with the two women was consensual, said Sgt. Gerald Grimsled of the Lake Delton Police Department.
Grimsled said police don’t believe the other six players were involved. Lake Delton Police said the six cleared were quarterback Matt Flynn, safety Khalil Jones, guard Josh Sitton, fullback Korey Hall, and linebackers Brad Jones and Clay Matthews.
Police declined to release the name of the seventh player on Saturday. “(The) seventh did have contact with the two females,” Grimsled said. “We were pretty sure of that. Everybody was cooperative.
“It comes down to ‘was it consensual sex?’ One side says yes, the other says no.”
Underwood was selected with the second of the Packers’ two sixth-round draft choices, No. 187 overall in last years draft. He overcame academic difficulties early in his career that led to a lost scholarship at Ohio State by transferring to Cincinnati and paying his own way.
Just a few days ago there was a tidbit in the Green Bay Press Gazette on Underwood. Coach Mike McCarthy called him the most improved 2nd year player on the team. Now with the following coming out, Underwood may find himself in a totally different battle than that of just trying to improve on the field.
