Report: Sounders FC’s Montero under investigation

SeattlePI.com has just posted a story that says Sounders FC Fredy Montero is under investigation for alleged sexual assault of a 23-year-old Sammamish woman.

I was looking into the story myself earlier this evening, and the facts as far as I know them are these: Montero had not been accused of such a crime as of this evening, and no charges had been filed. He is sick with the flu and not likely to be healthy enough to play Saturday, and did not fly to Toronto with the team.

Sounders FC’s stance on the situation is as follows, in the form of a statement from the team:

“We are aware of the situation and continue to gather information. We fully support Fredy and expect him to play next week. We will have no further comment at this time.”

Montero was recently named MLS Player of Month.
