The player known for his “crab-shake” dance will not be charged for sexual assault. The allegations were first reported after the 49ers divisional win over the Green Bay Packers. The woman accused Crabtree of assaulting her at a nearby hotel after the game. However, two witnesses claim no sexual assault or any kind took place during that time.

According to San Francisco Police, Crabtree was never detained or arrested in the matter, and that he cooperated fully with their investigation.

49ers general manager Trent Baalke released the following statement:

“Michael and the team can now put this behind us and move forward,” Baalke said in a statement.

With the 49ers getting ready for the Baltimore Ravens, they can now put this behind them and focus on football, as they prepare themselves for the franchise’s quest for six.
