No Evidence Saints Broke Law With Wiretapping Allegations, According To Report

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Louisiana State Police are set to announce they've found no laws broken in their investigation into alleged wiretapping allegations against currently-suspended New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis:

A source told PFT that the State Police are announcing those findings at a press conference today, and Louisiana State Police Col. Mike Edmonson told the Associated Press that after conducting numerous interviews, "there is no evidence that state laws have been violated."

Loomis was accused of installing wiretapping devices in the Superdome with the purpose of listening to opposing coaches in an ESPN story in the spring of 2012. That allegation was followed by news that the source who fueled ESPN's original story was a fired former Saints employee.

The investigation of the Louisiana State Police is independent of the forthcoming report from the Freeh Group, now-famous for its investigation into Penn State athletics in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. The investigation for Freeh Group's report on the Saints is ongoing.
