McIntyre addresses dropped charges

Bills fullback Corey McIntyre made a brief statement at the close of practice at Tuesday’s minicamp concerning the dropped charges against him in the misdemeanor exposure case.

“I just want to say that I’m happy my name has been cleared today,” said McIntyre. “I’ve maintained my innocence all through this process and I’m glad it’s out of the way. I’m sorry for the embarrassment to my family and to the Bills and now my focus is on training camp.”

If you look at the police report online as I did a few weeks ago, this case smelled fishy from the start. McIntyre was not wearing the clothes that fit the description of the suspect when he was apprehended, but because he had dreadlocks the alleged victim was sure it was him.

McIntyre has a bike route he takes every day as part of his training that happens to run by the alleged victim’s house. So it looks as though it was a clear case of mistaken identity and a case of McIntyre being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The authorities have since picked up the man who they believe could be the real offender and looking at his mug shot he is of a considerably different build than the stocky McIntyre.

Kind of a shame McIntyre’s family had to go through all that on a very bad mistake.
