Police don't plan to recommend pressing charges against a Green Bay Packers player accused of sexual assault by two women who changed their statements during the investigation, the chief overseeing the investigation said yesterday.

Delton Police Chief Tom Dorner said he expects to forward the investigation's findings to prosecutors by today, but he thinks they would have a hard time proving a case.

Officers were called early Saturday to a condo in Lake Delton, Wis., where seven Packers players were staying during a charity golf event. The women initially told investigators they were sexually assaulted by more than one Packer while other players held them down.

After the players were questioned, the women changed their statements to say only one person assaulted them, Dorner said yesterday.

Police cleared six of the seven players of wrongdoing. A seventh player whom police declined to identify and who has not been arrested remains under investigation. Police declined to identify the women, saying only both are from Milwaukee. One is 31 years old, the other 33.

The women met several players at a strip club, Dorner said. He said the women were patrons, not club employees.
