Nets’ Blatche questioned, released in alleged sexual assault in Philadelphia
Nets backup center Andray Blatche, along with two other men, was brought in for questioning by Philadelphia police on Tuesday morning in connection with an alleged sexual assault on a 21-year-old woman that took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Center City. Blatche was released by police and will not be charged with any crime, according to multiple reports.
The Nets, who are in Philadelphia to play the 76ers on Tuesday night, released a statement in regard to the incident.
“We are aware of the ongoing police investigation regarding a member of the Brooklyn Nets,” the statement read. “We will have no further comment until the investigation has concluded. All of our players are available for tonight’s game.”
Blatche tweeted: “Im ok and I didn’t do anything jus was n the area when it happened,” at 9:21 a.m. Tuesday morning after being interviewed by police. Blatche later took down the tweet, but enough outlets saw the tweet to figure out that he was somehow implicated in the police investigation.
