08:58 AM ET 01.19 | San Francisco police have interviewed 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree about allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman after the team's victory last weekend. The alleged attack occurred at an unnamed hotel early Sunday, hours after the team's victory over the Green Bay Packers. The incident is being investigated by the Special Victims Unit, whose detectives have interviewed Crabtree with his lawyer present. Crabtree has agreed to make himself available for possible further interviews. The 25-year-old player - who has not been detained or arrested - is expected to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons. General manager Trent Baalke said the team is aware of the allegations.

How nice of the SF police to hold off the arrest until the 49ers are out of the playoff.

Yeah but it's a bit like getting a speeding ticket in a speed trap that exists 24/7. You get what you deserve!

I tell ya what... If I were an NFL player I'd have my lawyer draw up "Mutual Consent" papers.

"Yeah, baby... let's do this. Did you happen to notice if that garage on the corner had a notary sign hanging out front?"

Maybe she is a Falcon fan and was doing her part to take him out of the game...

Why not go for it. there's no risk for her and she could hit the jackpot. Should be mandatory jail time for one or the other.

I'm guessing gold-digger. Any bets she talked to a lawyer before she talked to the police?

This seems to be a recurring theme, maybe it is a sign of the economy. I'm betting she talked to her lawyer before she slept with him.

The LIONS players only crash their cars and smoke dope,but 49er's rape.

If it had been a special Teamer... He'd be suspended.
