Chris “Birdman” Andersen’s Home Searched by Authorities

By: WebProNews Staff - May 11, 2012

Chris “Birdman” Andersen, reserve center for the Denver Nuggets, had his home searched by Douglas County Sherrif department’s Internet Crimes Against Children unit. As a result, Andersen has been temporarily removed from all team-related activities until the investigation has concluded.

Although representatives for the Nuggets have declined to comment on the situation, they did issue a statement claiming that Andersen was “excused from all team-related activities indefinitely as he deals with the reported investigation”. At the moment, the fan favorite hasn’t been arrested or charged with any crimes.

The Internet Crimes Against Children unit investigates claims of child pornography. The sheriff’s department has revealed that property pertaining to the case was confiscated from Andersen’s home. However, authorities claim that an arrest is not imminent, and declined to comment further on the investigation.

Andersen, who was kicked out of the NBA in 2006 after failing a drug test, has contributed greatly to several children’s charities. In addition to raising a considerable amount of cash for Mount Saint Vincent, a home for troubled and abused children, Andersen has also helped the folks over at Alliance for Choice in Education.
