Bernie Fine Investigation: House Searched By Police On Friday Afternoon

Bernie Fine's house was searched by several police agencies on Friday afternoon, reports the Syracuse Post-Standard

Four state troopers stood at 2:25 p.m at the foot of the driveway at Fine's home at 7001 Tiffany Circle. Other officers could be seen outside the house; three appeared to be looking through a trash can. A Syracuse Police crime scene van was parked up the driveway near the home and at least a half-dozen marked and unmarked police vehicles were parked on the street.

Fine is being investigated following allegations from two men who say they were sexually molested by the Syracuse assistant coach when they were teenagers. Bobby Davis, one of the alleged victims, initially reported the allegations in 2002 but was apparently told by the police they would not investigate because the statute of limitations had expired.

Davis said he decided to step forward again after hearing of the Jerry Sandusky investigation at Penn State, and the Syracuse District Attorney has subpoenaed records from the police to determine why his initial allegations were never investigated. 

Fine has been placed on administrative leave by Syracuse pending the results of the investigation. Head coach Jim Boeheim, who's known Fine for 40 years, has been extremely vocal in his support of his assistant and friend.
