Former 49ers S Spillman investigated for sexual assault

Oct 2, 2014 11:44 AM

GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys special teams player C.J. Spillman is under investigation but hasn't been arrested or charged after a report of an alleged sexual assault at the team hotel last month.

Grapevine police spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling said Wednesday night that the alleged incident took place early the morning of Sept. 20 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.

The team flew to St. Louis later that Saturday, and Spillman played against the Rams the next day. He has played in all four games for the Cowboys, including last weekend at home against New Orleans.

Eberling said no other details were being released because the investigation is ongoing.

Spillman's agent and attorney declined to comment.

The Cowboys signed the 28-year-old Spillman on Sept. 1.
