• Chris Andersen of Miami Heat cleared in 'extremely complex' case

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Sep 18, 2013
    Heat forward Chris Andersen was the victim of a wide-ranging Internet hoax that resulted in a raid of his Denver-area home last year, his lawyer said Wednesday, and prosecutors confirmed Andersen was cleared of wrongdoing in the "extremely complex" case. In the thick of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, veteran center Chris "Birdman" Andersen, then a member of the Denver Nuggets and now a key player for the world champion Miami Heat, grabbed headlines for what appeared to be all the wrong reasons. In January 2006, Andersen was disqualified from the NBA for violating the league's "drugs of abuse" policy and was not reinstated until March 2008. When Birdman returned to the court this season for the Miami Heat, it appeared as if the issue had blown over, or at least not become an overbearing presence in his life. Several hours before Game 6 of the Nuggets' first-round series against the Los Angeles Lakers, a Colorado Internet Crimes Against Children unit searched his home in relation to an ongoing investigation related to child pornography.
