Sexual assault Investigation targets Packer
MILWAUKEE — Police in Lake Delton, Wis., are investigating a Packers player in connection with an alleged sexual assault of two women at a condo party Saturday morning.
Authorities interviewed and released six Packers players, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported, but the focus is on a seventh the police would not identify. The newspaper reported that player is cornerback Brandon Underwood, who told investigators the contact was consensual.
Police cleared Clay Matthews, Matt Flynn, Khalil Jones, Josh Sitton, Korey Hall and Brad Jones of any involvement in the alleged assault.
"It comes down to was it consensual sex. One side says yes, the other says no," Sgt. Gerald Grimsled of the Lake Delton Police Department told the Journal Sentinel.
Police Chief Tom Dorner said the investigation results would be turned over to the district attorney today or Tuesday to consider charges but no arrest had been made.

Cotto eyes old foes
After Miguel Cotto's ninth-round TKO of Yuri Foreman in a junior middleweight bout late Saturday at Yankee Stadium, he may be looking to avenge the two losses on his 35-2, 28-knockout slate.
Cotto lost to Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao, but Margarito was found to have loaded hand wraps before a later fight against Shane Mosley, creating some doubt about that loss.
