Unidentified Packer accused of sexual assault

Two women have accused an unidentified member of the Green Bay Packers with sexual assault at a resort condo in Lake Delton, Wis.

Two women have accused an unidentified member of the Green Bay Packers with sexual assault at a resort condo in Lake Delton, Wis.

Authorities in Lake Delton said yesterday no additional information would be released involving the claims of the women against a player staying at a the condo early Saturday morning. Six other players are cleared of criminal activity.

Authorities, the Packers and Packers teammates declined to name the player involved.

Police Chief Tom Dorner said he'd turn over results of the investigation to the district attorney today or tomorrow to consider charges.

The agent of the player reported to be the center of the probe did not return repeated calls and messages left by the Associated Press. Dorner said that there wasn't enough evidence or probable cause to make an arrest, but police took an unusual step of releasing the names of six other players who were cleared.

"I am upset that we didn't do anything and our names get thrown out there," backup quarterback Matt Flynn told reporters in Appleton, Wis. "We went and answered as many questions as possible and tried to get it rectified as quickly as possible. There is nothing that I or we did that I am embarrassed about."

The other players cleared were linebackers Clay Matthews and Brad Jones, fullback Korey Hall, guard Josh Sitton and safety Khalil Jones. The Packers issued a one-sentence statement on Saturday saying that they are continuing to gather facts.
