The Denver Nuggets are in a battle with the Los Angeles Lakers in their opening round series but for Denver's Chris Andersen, he might be in a legal battle in the near future.
According to TMZ, Andersen is being investigated by the Internet Crimes Against Children task force in Colorado.
Law enforcement tells TMZ ... the Douglas County Sheriff's Dept. received a tip from a California law enforcement agency back in February ... and finally searched Andersen's home early this morning. We're told officials seized property from the residence during the search.
We're told Andersen has not been arrested -- or charged with a crime.
Chris' attorney had no comment.
This is probably the last thing the Nuggets needed but at this point in time, Andersen really needs to focus on this potential legal issue. According to the ICCAC website, this is their aim.
The Colorado ICAC Task Force investigates persons using the Internet to attempt to engage in sexual contact with underage children, persons who send children web camera feeds of, or files displaying sexual acts, persons who download or distribute child pornography files using email or file-sharing networks.
That alone sums up the kind of hot water Chris possibly is in. It is important to reiterate, however, that Andersen himself has not yet been arrested or charged with any wrongdoing. He has, however, been excused from the team to deal with the situation.
Frequently, police seize computers, data storage devices and other electronics in these types of investigations.
Proving who used the device can be tricky if multiple people have access to it. Public records suggest one other person — a 30-year-old woman — may live at the Larkspur home.
The nature of this investigation is quite serious, and thus any speculation beyond the reporting of the facts will be irresponsible. The facts are, simply, Andersen's home and property was the focus of this investigation, and some property was seized. We urge readers and commenters to be respectful due to the sensitive nature of this story and also not jump to any conclusions until any charges are filed and guilt is proven in court.

This is truly an insult to the highest degree. This BS that these Bit--es have written Should be the last straw for all people of color. How many times have people of color been given the benefit of being innocent until proven guilty. That Bitc- as- commissioner should have "sent a clear message that (for the good of the game) Anderson should have been suspended". If a person of color jay walks all TV stations have emergency news breaks so that the NBA commissioner can come on TV and let the country know that one of his BOYS (people of color) has stepped out of line and he's going to disrupt their lives in order to send the rest of his BOYs a message that he can do what ever he wants, when ever he wants. Although, when it's a white guy, everyone wants to make it a point to let America know that he's innocent until proven guilty. Bottom line, if not for the people of color we wouldn't have our major sports. Know o e would tune in to watch a bunch of talentless whit boys playing football, basketball, or baseball. So with that in mind let's make an effort to stop being.so blatantly RACIST you dumb F--k's.
@dolemanj See, there wasn't enough evidence about anything yet...
@dolemanj Wow, really? He hasn't been charged with anything, and we don't even know if there was anything incriminating at his property yet...
